A story of trust: brand refresh and corporate narrative
TransUnion is best known as a Big Three credit reporting agency. But by now, they’re so much more. Bluegreen helped their story catch up to their business with a brand refresh, new corporate narrative, and reorganized portfolio, to reflect who they are today: a global innovator doing real good.

TransUnion is a global company headquartered in Chicago.
A global company in transition
A credit bureau since 1968, TransUnion experienced exponential change in the past decade: acquiring properties, expanding tech capabilities, going public, and navigating elevated consumer expectations and intensifying competition. They also now have more of a story to tell around their unique position of trusted stewardship in the modern global economy.
Their new corporate narrative is built on the brand promise to "make trust possible."
A pivot in brand strategy and messaging
It started by repositioning TransUnion as more than a credit bureau. That’s a central aspect of their heritage and duty, but just part of a bigger global information and insights brand. We wove together strategic themes like the evolving relationship between consumers and businesses, the concept of data identity, the promise of facilitating trust, and the purpose of using Information for Good.
Crafting a corporate narrative with a consumer-first lens
Complex offerings, shifting market dynamics and an aspirational mission can be hard to communicate quickly or consistently. We collaborated with TransUnion’s brand leadership team to shape a corporate narrative that brings it all together, first with a series of workshops and later with copywriting iterations. Then we adapted their story for different purposes, audiences and media.
We developed workshops and materials to train employees on the brand refresh and new corporate narrative.
Internal rollout: stakeholder communications and training
Getting a brand refresh and new story to stick requires people at all levels of the company to understand and support it. A tiered internal launch started with the C-Suite and top leadership. Then we helped train content creators and communicators in a series of workshops, developing the agenda and materials. Finally, we helped present it to the other 80,000 associates worldwide, so everyone at TransUnion could get the new story and share it as their own.
Phased rollout in marketing and sales materials
We’re now helping create a phased rollout for their various audiences. We also created the first few key touchpoints—from videos to events to sales decks to social media posts—to ensure strategy sticks the landing. It rolls out in 2023, so stay tuned.
“I've had amazing feedback from the new narrative work. People are excited and very impressed. THANK YOU for all your help. We couldn't have done this without you.”—R. Klein, VP Global Brand Management & Marketing
And it's live!
In February 2023, TransUnion launched their refreshed brand, revealing their completely reorganized suite of B2B solutions: the Tru portfolio.
Bluegreen worked on this initiative with the TransUnion brand team over two years in different capacities: design, naming, messaging, writing, training, videos, and other communications and marketing materials.
