We make cases.

challenge question

So what if you provide premium services but your image don't quite come along?

What we did?

Crafting a new logo based on suggestions and the previous version (which looks more like clipart) wasn't a case. We needed to be sure our work brings actual results. The only way of doing so was to start from an intelligence stage. Brandman Design conducted series of stakeholders interviews where we ask a massive amount of business questions. Following that, we have conducted strategy workshops over Zoom to create customer profiles and define the brand.

After the comprehensive thinking stage, we have moved forward to production, which creates a bold, confident brand identity for Forge and some print assets, allowing them to leave footsteps no matter where they go.
