Bigger purpose, brighter brand


Modernize a longstanding, family-led brand.

Marvin is a premium window and door manufacturer that plays in an increasingly competitive and commoditized category. The family-managed company has a storied history and is deeply loved by architects, builders and homeowners. But that deep history had led to outdated perceptions of the company at a time when leadership was articulating a bold new purpose: to shift from a manufacturing-led organization to a design-driven company that helps people live better at home.
