SEEING IS BELIEVING – TMC WEBSITE, SOCIAL MEDIA CHANNELS AND BRAND GUIDE
Shareholders can view The Medi-Collective brand on its bespoke website and various social media accounts as of this morning. The new brand identity utilizes a modified hyphen to convey its focus on a collaborative model of healthcare, metaphorically combining the medical practice with a coordinated team of expert practitioners.
The Company invested a significant amount of time, research, and energy to develop a brand capable of appealing and competing with National and North American scale. Moreover, the Company has invested significant financial resources to protect the new intellectual property including trademark filings for the brand, logos and tag lines.
As a result, the Company is now happy to invite shareholders to view the following:

A review of the brand guide and supporting online assets demonstrates very clearly that TMC is far beyond just a new name and logo. Rather, TMC brand assets illustrate how the Company is preparing for serious and significant growth of its clinics and medical centers.
“With our TMC brand we are focused on two things; clear and understandable messaging combined with unique and memorable design aesthetics, that together reflect the brand’s mission of effective, collaborative healthcare. We look forward to being a part of the growth and development of TMC as it enters the real-world space and begins to take on a positive leadership role in the health and care of patients.” said Rika Heywood, from Heywood Beaudry Creative Inc., creative directors of Empower.
