ARKANE – A Bold Redesign

The brief

ARKANE, a distinguished architectural firm known for their innovative designs and cutting-edge projects, approached DsgnStory Branding Agency seeking a fresh brand identity that would reflect their commitment to creativity and sophistication.

The challenge was to create a wordmark logo that would capture the essence of their work and stand out in the highly competitive architectural industry. In this case study, we will delve into the creative process behind the development of the ARKANE wordmark logo and how it successfully redefined the company’s brand.

Project Description

The primary objective of this project was to create a compelling and distinctive wordmark logo for ARKANE that would convey its core values of innovation, precision, and sophistication. The logo needed to be versatile, timeless, and memorable, setting them apart from their competitors.

Research and Discovery:

To understand ARKANE’s unique identity, we conducted extensive research into their portfolio, company history, and client testimonials. We also analyzed their competitors’ branding strategies and identified design trends within the architectural industry. Key findings from this phase included the importance of conveying creativity, trustworthiness, and a forward-thinking approach.

Concept Development:

Drawing inspiration from ARKANE’s commitment to innovative design, we explored various concepts, typography styles, and color palettes. Red and black emerged as the dominant colors, symbolizing passion, strength, and sophistication. We opted for a custom wordmark logo to ensure uniqueness and exclusivity.

Design Process:

The design process involved multiple iterations and brainstorming sessions. Each letter in the word “ARKANE” was meticulously customized to create a harmonious yet distinct composition. The sleek, sans-serif font exuded modernity, while the interplay of the letters added an architectural dimension. The choice of red for the letters, with black as the background, created a bold and striking visual impact.

Typography Selection:

We selected a custom typeface that balanced legibility and aesthetics. The font was designed to convey the precision and attention to detail that ARKANE brings to their projects.

Color Palette:
