One brand to rule them all
Corporate visual identity for DFDS
Simplifying Northern Europe’s largest shipping and logistics company
DFDS is northern Europe’s largest integrated shipping and logistics company. In 2015 DFDS redefined their corporate branding strategy, and unified all of its sub brands under one name: DFDS.
In close collaboration with DFDS’ inhouse marketing department, we helped DFDS revitalize their corporate visual identity to accommodate the new corporate brand strategy. As a result, we created a new logo, colour systems, graphic systems and introduced a new visual brand hierarchy based on the concept of simplification.
Work originally done by HEAVY™️ – Now a part of IDna Group.
The maltese cross
We refined DFDS’ iconic symbol by simplifying the maltese cross and by visually aligning the expression with the rest of the logo.
Simplified logo and system
We incorporated DFDS’ bespoke brand typeface as part of the wordmark. The rounded corners of the rhombus and new maltese cross are balanced to visually resemble the corners used in the typeface. The new simplified design system offers DFDS a strong yet flexible visual language that can work across various media.
One brand strategy
Together with DFDS we united the organisation’s various sub brands in order to achieve a simpler and stronger brand experience for both customers and stakeholders.
Co:Play naming and visual identity
In times of digitalisation and tech domination, new opportunities and challenges emerge. We created a bold identity for Co:Play that breaks with the conventions and the regular expression that we see in many law firms today, as they are truly different.
EHF brand system and visual identity
We were asked to develop a new brand design system and visual identity for the European Handball Federation – Our mission was to rejuvenate handball.
Krigsmuseet – Kanonhallen
Mankind has always been both fascinated and repelled by war. Thus, we were happy to be given the opportunity be a part of creating the visual universe for the new exhibition in the beautiful old artillery hall, and hereby be a part of conveying the insights and learnings about war.
