SUNRISE, Fla., June 26, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bioheart, Inc. (BHRT.OB) announced today that the company has launched a new brand image and redesigned website including a new company logo and tagline aimed at increasing brand awareness and improving communications.
"It is an absolute necessity for biotechnology companies today to skillfully communicate consistent, cohesive messages to a variety of audiences and stakeholders," said Mike Tomas, Pres/CEO of Bioheart, Inc. "The new website is innovative, easy to navigate and furnishes value-added information and messaging."
The company's new tagline, Advancing Regenerative Medicine Solutions, accurately conveys its continued commitment to the development of effective cell technologies to treat cardiovascular diseases as well as harnessing true regenerative medicine which is the process of replacing or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function. In addition to stem cell therapy, this can include cell enhancers, gene therapy, biologics, devices and more.
The main objective of the website redesign was to enhance the user experience for visitors and investors providing useful data about Bioheart's existing patents, the status of its clinical trials in the U.S. and Mexico, links to the company's Facebook and Twitter social media sites and the ability to sign-up for the company's e-newsletter. A Yahoo! Finance stock ticker has also been added to the investor section of the website.
The website redesign and new logo were developed by kabookaboo, an award-winning integrated marketing company that combines creative talent with strategic insight and online development with social media expertise (www.kabookaboo.com).
