Competitive Naming Profile
How your company or product name competes in the marketplace is an important factor to naming success. Cintara conducts a thorough analysis of your top competitors names to identify the strengths, weaknesses, tone, style and personality of each. From this information, a Competitive Naming Profile is created which provides a consolidation of your competitor’s key naming characteristics and factors.

Positioning Profile
Every winning brand name has distinct positioning. Your brand’s positioning provides a story about the company or product and accordingly, your new name strongly reflects what it stands for. Cintara works with you to hone and refine your brand positioning and translate it into a rich and meaningful story.

Creative Visualization
Great names are made even greater when they are visualized through the development of logo treatments, ad layouts, and other creative materials. Cintara provides a full service design department and can develop an award-winning identity for your new company or product name.

Trademark Clearance
Your names are prescreened with Cintara’s Trademark Check process which thoroughly searches the USPTO, Internet and trade databases to determine early likelihood of name availability. From those names, 3-5 finalist candidates are then screened through a top trademark research firm for final comprehensive checking, and to identify any potential trademark issues. Cintara’s objective is to provide the most detailed trademark clearance available to enable realistic name evaluation thereby helping our clients avoid potential legal problems down the road.

Cintara has relationships with top trademark and intellectual property attorney’s across the country and abroad, and can recommend a firm if one is needed for filing the trademark documents for your new name. Additionally, Cintara is a member of the International Trademark Association (INTA).
