Oryx Properties

Visual Identity design

Oryx Properties Ltd is a property development company with big plans for the local Warwickshire area. Working in both development and letting, they are developing both arms of the business.

We provided a visual identity and considerations for the future growth of the brand.

Branding is a living process. It requires constant adjustment dependent on audience perception and an overall business plan. As the company interacts with its audience, over time there will be opportunities to gather feedback, fine-tune interactions and develop plans.

 

Case Study

The visual identity demonstrates key values; quality, creativity and reliability. We used a simple, modern typeface to support the key values while also providing maximum legibility (vital for unfamiliar words). A colour palette of grey and yellow suggests stability and energy, as does the customised logomark.

Shortsteps Coaching

Mindset coach

Case Study

Shortsteps are specialists in performance improvement training and coaching.

The intention of the rebrand was to target  corporate professionals more effectively. A new visual identity was required aswell as clarifying internal substance (purpose, mission, vision and values) and establishing a clear brand persona.

Case Study

The Outlaw persona

The Shortsteps brand justifiably includes elements of the Outlaw archetype, in that they challenge and disrupt the norm by questioning beliefs and conventions.

However, due to the corporate environment we decided to create an appearance that would not look out of place while allowing the disruptive element to express itself through the verbal aspect of the brand.

Positioning

Identifying the desired market position helps inform the visual style.

Logo design

With the brand name ‘Shortsteps’, our intention, was to avoid the obvious and appeal to the appropriate audience.

What the client said...

Managing director Chris Cortopassi of Short Steps Ltd: 

Working with Mario was hard work but in a good way!
 
He really helps you to dig down and get to the root of what your business is about, what your core values and messaging is and what your ideal customers need to see and hear from you.
 
I needed to rebrand as I was growing my business from 121 model to serving businesses. Mario was referred to me by others in the industry I respected and trust. He worked tirelessly, even when I would get frustrated, to get the best outcome for me, based on my desired goals and constraints.

Case Study

The benefit was a much clearer understanding of who I was, how I could best represent myself and how to make myself attractive to potential clients.
 
New branding is slick, powerful and lines up really nicely now with other businesses operating in my space…..on many cases, IMHO, much better!
 
He is easy going, spiritually motivated and supportive, definitely recommend working with him.

I needed help re-branded my business’s identity and through conversations, we had thought that he could assist me. Mario came across as very personable and professional, so he managed to build trust with me quite quickly. 
 

Mario created a strong brand identity, which I believe jumps off the page far more than it ever could on the old platform. 

The process also taught me a lot on how to sell to my customers and Mario gave me much more of an insight from the customer’s standpoint when looking at my brand.

We also focus on the distinctive qualities that the Identity should convey. Our keywords were Knowledgeable,  Approachable, and  Trustworthy.
