N³ Innovation

Amie Gray (CEO of N³ Innovation, based in Silicon Valley) contacted me in early 2021 with a clear idea and a direction she was going. A brand that encapsulated three main keywords: Partnership | Connecting | Timelessness.

A simple logo with three elements is needed to evoke togetherness and partnership, as well as innovative, cube-like, with elements coming together to form a futuristic shape. 

First, I highlighted the above keywords + Simple | Futuristic | Cubed | Coming together | Number Three. Then, I started to contextualise.  Next, was a concept for a newsletter called The Cube, which I also took to the workshop.

Intuitively, I wanted a brand aesthetic that was contemporary with a modern twist. The challenge was to modernise the business intelligence symbology that seems to be trapped inside conservative walls.

I began experimenting with the shape of the cube. I placed three inverted hexagons next to each other to represent partnership (the three main executives at N3). A strategy began to emerge. Then, the concept of infinity, which ultimately conveys the perpetual engine behind Silicon Valley.

As a result, I created a brand recognition strategy that goes beyond its main signifier. I looked for the inexplicable, something that was emotionally powerful. I wanted to pull the user closer to the brandmark, so the details could be appreciated.

A perfect collaboration led to the birth of a unique brand.

Colour

Amie already had most of the colours in mind. She listed the main 4 colours for me. I developed the remaining three colours to ensure as much scope as possible to apply across all communication. The final palette consists of 7 contrasting colours allowing for infinite application.
