A refresh of Gregory Ball’s personal stationery which included branding and web design.
KAE are a strategic marketing agency focussing on delivering insight, innovation and strategy to a small number of high-value clients. They specialise in unlocking opportunities that others have not yet seen, or thought possible.
Socio Design helped KAE reposition itself as a premium strategic partner in its market, working as a trusted advisor to their clients. This involved formulating a new brand strategy that drew out its distinctive identity. To deliver this we constructed a concept that focused on the idea of ‘exploration’ and ‘heroes’, likening the business landscape to hostile territory that required an expert to navigate. This metaphor enabled us to pitch KAE as the pioneers, who help their clients successfully make tricky business decisions and circumvent potential problems. Through their identity, we were able to increase KAE’s stock as an indispensable partner to its clients.
To reflect the high-end but hard-working nature of the brand, a robust copper foil was implemented across all marketing material. Paired with a neutral colour palette, this communicated quality without detracting from KAE’s renowned work ethic. Print work by Avenue Litho and Dan Mather.
Montreal’s creative fashion house creates unique clothing using mostly recycled fabrics. Company logo uses a cursive, hand-written typestyle in a distinct wordmark treatment. Each business card is different since it is printed manually, with a custom stamp, on colourful, recycled heavyweight papers. The result is a visually-playful brand… just like the style-forward, contemporary fashions Pas de Chichi create. Designed by Sylvain Toulouse.

Identity for Festningen. Designed by Uniform.
Brook McIlroy is an award-winning architecture, urban design, landscape architecture and planning firm. In creating a new visual identity for the firm, the challenge was to communicate the collaborative and interdisciplinary nature of the company.
The solution employs a simple wordmark with an adjoining slash in a bright colour. The symbology of the slash alludes to URL convention, with its use as a connecting element between the domain name and other parts of website. The simple but noticeable “slash” in the word mark seemed an appropriate symbol to the connection of different disciplines both within and outside of the firm.
Along with the visual identity, Concrete created stationery, marketing material templates, signage and a brand standards guide.
