As the firm grew over time, a lack of definition and focus on the brand led to inconsistencies. To help them make unified strides forward as one company and one brand, we first took a closer look at who they are.
After 65 hours of customer interviews and getting to know the Gresham Smith culture, it was obvious that the firm’s history and future hinge on their two greatest strengths: its people and their creative solutions. Or what we would call...
As we talked to more people, a new problem emerged. There was no consistency in how people referred to them. So, we simplified it.
Then we designed a strong geometric symbol, comprised of two parts: a half-circle and a triangle. Genuine. Ingenuity.
This concept of genuine ingenuity was applied across the identity, which began to form a smart, fixed but flexible system.
We also developed a voice and tone that is smart, approachable, passionate, clear and has a touch of fun.
