Online visual identity
The final brand mark is both minimal and invigorating. The starkness of the black backdrop and clean type is offset by a bright and contemporary symbol.
We developed conceptual avenues around collaboration and created a number of naming strategies for the branding of the software product.
We wanted the combination of minimal confident typography and an evocative icon to really create a confident and punchy brand.
We wanted to create an iconic brand which adapted really well to the digital environment. Simplicity and stand out being the key factors.
The branding needed to have an engaging and immersive brand look and feel. We developed the idea of slick yet accessible, making sure that the product felt truly plug and play.
The combination of a minimal black environment and highly saturated brand assets creates a brand with real visibility and recognition.
Online visual identity:
With the design of the online environment, we made sure that the clear and concise messaging was held within a slick and progressive medium.
Software, with personality
Freedman have created a cloud based, global collaboration system whereby multiple and diverse marketing teams can more easily communicate with each other, in the production of advertising campaigns across the globe. The software needed naming, positioning, a digital brand and a website to build brand awareness and reach.
Extensive research undertaken by Firedog made it clear that there were similar systems out there, but what made this one unique is its simplicity. It allows the user to control the way that the system works rather than the other way round. With naming and branding we explored two routes: “technology slick” vs. ” fun & engaging”. The end result was a mixture of the best values from both. Inspired by the vibrancy and transparency of the product, the visual look and feel is comprised of a bright colour palette and translucent shapes. Smooth lines are also incorporated, reticent of the clean and simple-to-use technology. For a technology product, web presence is vital for success. A holding page was created to enable prospective clients to sign up to receive updates while both the product and the website were in development stages.
A name, brand and website that showcase the vibrancy and simplicity of the product offering. The website went live on 10th November 2011 and the sales lead generation and online goal completions have increased exponentially since.
