After 90 years in business, Capitol Lighting’s legacy brand needed an update. Their e-commerce platform, 1800Lighting.com was quickly growing. But without brand management, it also risked diluting 90 years of equity.
So, how do you merge brick-and-mortar legacy with a new digital mindset—without compromising either?
