Character, the leading performance branding agency uniquely positioned at the intersection of brand and performance marketing, turned to us for help with a full brand identity overhaul. We worked with the Character team, unearthing their core values to create a succinct rebrand that clearly conveys their expertise and successfully positions them as the leading agency in their niche.
Equipped with a new name, logo, and marketing collateral, along with a comprehensive brand book and captivating website, Character’s identity now matches the caliber of their services.

UX / UI DESIGN
We brought to life a strong brand personality and visual framework across multiple channels on and offline.
Character’s brand book distills the entirety of its environment, essence, and expression. This encompasses the landscape the brand operates in, core brand positioning, and how Character presents itself in the digital world.
Character’s new logo features a thick, easy to read text structure, negative space, and a pop of color for punctuation. The addition of blue also adds an element of playfulness to round out the impact of the logo.
Readable | Identifiable | Powerful
Bold | Symbolic | Clean
Character’s logomark depicts completion, connection, and opportunity. The CH from the logomark comes from the logotype, with the C completing what’s missing from the H.
This illustrates how Character is the missing piece that a brand needs to reach its full potential, and the fulfillment Character creates for clients. It is the key to the lock, the handle to open a door to growth.
Two contrasting fonts create a strong, harmonious typographic rhythm and a readable structure.

Character’s color palette is based in a neutral black and white with balancing gray text placements. Blue makes up the core accent color, and lighter accents of orange are employed to add emphasis to action items.
The bright blue gives a feeling of trust, imagination, and security, while the contrasting orange evokes energy, happiness, and warmth.
clean | modern | Confident
Character’s voice is expert, authentic, and caters to the brand’s unique target audience. Character is a team of educators and storytellers, which comes through clearly in the honest and intentional messaging across all applications.
