TextRetailer is an all-in-one solution to sell products through text message. They provide a Shop by Text campaign system so customers can complete purchases with single text payments. It’s the lowest friction, fastest, and revenue-boosting checkout solution available. This unique offering and the descriptive nature of the name is where our brand strategy focused.

Defining the purpose and brand strategy of TextRetailer allowed Creative Mellen to base the identity on speed, shopping, and text messaging. Since the industry is so new, we used a recognizable shopping cart symbol typically used for online checkouts. Combining the speed and text messaging components to the shopping cart gave TextRetailer a unique foundation that quickly identifies them in the market. The rounded typography flows nicely into the symbol emphasizing the simple and quick aspect of the product.
