Brief Explanation

The challenge was designing a logo that would simply and succinctly express both the digital nature of the event, but also give a strong impression of the learning offered.

Describe the brief from the client:

Create an identity for strategic training that would reflect the digital nature of the offering.

Description of how you arrived at the final design:

The idea of pixels being sharpened was an interesting metaphor, with an equally fun wordplay.

Indication of how successful the outcome was in the market:

For the initial three-day event, attendance was 72% of those invited. There was enormous feedback from those who attended on both the name and the design of the identity. In addition, the USB-powered pencil sharpener was a much-appreciated gift that filled out the concept.
