Having arrived at a strong and authentic brand name (Hau/House/Care + Forge/make/develop), we set out to convey those conceptual and technical characteristics in a cohesive brand identity system with strong brand elements to identify and differentiate Hauforge through all of its brand touchpoints.
Images (opinion after)
The old logo — sorry for the poor resolution, that’s all there was — was as bad as the resolution is low on that file; the wordmark alone could have been decent but the ugly, too-close strokes and the leaf-slash-martini-olives icon were terrible. The new logo is unapologetically bold and corporate, looking like it means business when it comes to making them cows’ bones strong. The icon has a cool, science-y structure and even though it’s shaped like a cartoon dog’s bone to chew on, it looks straight out of Omni Consumer Products (in a good way). The wordmark is kind of cool too. The packaging looks great, with the large icon in the background and the simple typography on top, almost like Mid Century pharmaceutical packaging. Overall, a pretty slick identity for what is not the most exciting product.
