Original logo

Logo refinement

We explored different styles of illustration for Hart's main symbol - the stag. The original logo predominantly focused on the strong stag 'head', symbolising safety, protection and trust. Whilst exploring different avenues, the refined logo maintained the essence of the original logo but provided for more clarity and impact.

Type and color

We chose two bold typefaces - Poppins and Nexa slab. The attributes of these typefaces complement the strong symbolism of the stag. The colour palette was elevated with a brighter blue and a contrasting yellow was added to create dimension and impact.

Visual language

To support the essence of the brand, we created a strong yet simple visual language that could easily be applied to both the printed andd digital world.

Digital

The website was designed from the ground up in order to re-position Hart as a world-class global leader in land, sea and air security.

The end solution is a responsive framework that heavily relies on new photography and clear, easy to use navigation. A customized WordPress CMS was built with a content strategy in place, enabling Hart to dynamically manage all their content and grow their brand.

Mobile

A lightweight, responsive framework helps site visitors, no matter where they are to engage with the new Hart website content.

Case Studies

Showcasing what Hart does best is vital in the success of the site as a communication tool. Driving new leads and building brand awereness.
