Product Sonification: Microsoft Xbox360
“When we set out to bring the Xbox360 to life by infusing a sonic landscape, we were not looking for a sound design company, we were looking for a group that lived sonic branding. Audiobrain is that company. They developed a sonic dialogue that completed our established design language.” -Microsoft Official Press Release

Global Sonic Branding Initiative: UNIFY
Since 2012, Audiobrain has been collaborating with Unify, formerly Siemens Enterprise Communications, to develop a long-term, strategic, and intentional Sonic Branding initiative; in order to coincide with a global re-branding effort combined with an event launch. Since the start of the initiative, we were able to sonically articulate the brands' attributes, creating a consistent and identifiable brand sound across a multitude of platforms.
The initiative included a global sound logo, various length broadcast elements, room ambience, corporate videos, ringtones, a scored keynote speech for the Unify brand unveiling, and many other touchpoints. As a result, the creation of a seamless and consistent sonic experience of the Unify brand has been experienced throughout the world.
