Unearthing prosperity
Coast were engaged by Drillsearch Energy to play a leading role in communicating the strategic intent of its merger with Great Artesian Oil and Gas.

Within a limited timeframe Coast conducted qualitative research and distilled the findings into a compelling strategic vision and brand identity. The new wordmark exemplifies the amalgamation of the two organisations and their shared promise of ‘unearthing prosperity’. The ‘double L’ within the wordmark was used as a graphic device in corporate communications.

Not only did the successful merger create a new company with a market capitalisation of approximately $75 million, it also ensured that a productive relationship was maintained and enhanced with its three key constituencies: employees, customers and the investment community.

“This was not an easy task with the need to engage multiple stakeholders throughout the organisation and to deliver within tightly defined timelines. We were thoroughly delighted with the result and have received many positive comments from peers and shareholders alike.” Ian Bucknell, Chief Financial Officer & Company Secretary.
