Guardian Glass

Guardian Glass produces high-performance glass products that are found on and within buildings around the world. From some of the world’s tallest skyscrapers to groundbreaking energy-efficient projects, Guardian Glass enables customers to achieve their vision using glass.

Through a process of interviews, employee surveys, and secondary research, Brophy developed the See what’s possible™ brand promise and tagline that encourages customers to embrace a future where glass is an even greater part of what the world builds. Brophy advised Guardian Glass on brand architecture opportunities and developed a new visual design language to be streamlined around the world. Based on the brand values of partnership, knowledge, and discovery, we developed new brand colors, typography, and a modular pattern-based design scheme that represent sketches of new ideas. Brophy also designed Guardian Glass brand guidelines with global use in mind, including right-to-left language guidelines for Arabic-language countries.

Brand Anthem

To explain the brand strategy, Brophy produced a 60-second manifesto that reflects the Guardian Glass brand promise of See what’s possible. The film follows one architect developing a building based on her initial inspiration, featuring interludes of other Guardian Glass partners and applications.

Global Recruiting & Employee Engagement

Brophy worked with Guardian's human resources and talent solutions department to extend the brand for recruiting and employee engagement activities. We developed a talent fair kit that could be easily adapted for various sizes and languages around the world. Below is the English-language collateral we developed as part of that kit.


Brophy worked with Guardian Glass stakeholders to develop content for a global website. We created, managed, and deployed all content for a global version of the site, including video, images, animations, and copy.
