Wiley X, Inc. Unveils New Marketing Message

Wiley X, Inc. Unveils New Marketing Message

Leading eyewear innovator Wiley X, Inc. has developed a new marketing tagline that will be used in a variety of ways to get a clear message across about the company and its products. This new tagline — Absolute. Premium. Protection. —will begin appearing in advertisements, POS artwork, collateral materials and other marketing/promotional pieces. “It’s rare that you’re able to capture the essence of a company and its products in three words, but we’ve achieved this with our new tagline,” said Wiley X Co-Owner Myles Freeman, Jr. “When you say these three words — individually and collectively — you state the true definition of Wiley X. As an additional benefit, it applies equally well across the diverse protective eyewear markets we serve, whether it’s in the workplace, military/tactical, or outdoor recreation markets,” added Freeman. This message will be used to drive home the point that Wiley X is the only premium sunglass brand able to claim that every pair of glasses it makes exceeds stringent ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards, for OSHA Occupational Eye Protection.

(eye)’m inspired – Dolabany Romco

(eye)’m inspired – Dolabany Romco

  ROMCO by the Dolabany Eyewear Collection in Mahogany Smoke A Best Image Optical eyewear designer had this to say about designing the frame: Concept “The idea behind the ‘Romco’ frame was to create a unisex bold frame that will enhance both casual and professional styles. Its shields and thick bridge were incorporated in its design to give it some vintage flare.” Colors “The gradient color goal was mahogany red and grey. The color combination reminded me of the fall season in Central Park, New York. How the autumn foliage can reach a dark red color tone is beyond me. The acetate was carefully chosen to reach a beautiful color combination between a worn type mahogany wood panels and the smoke gradient color of one of my favorite animals, the Gray wolf.” Shape “Romco’s shape is a basic block frame. This is my favorite shape when I ‘m focusing on gradient color tones because I can easily transition the colors. Plus, I’m a big fan of big vintage frames.” For more information on the Dolabany Eyewear Collection visit bestimageoptical.com or read more from Best Image Optical’s (eye)’m inspired blog.
