Formline - transforming office environments

 

 

Formline Group is a family-owned and operated workplace design and construction business that has been successfully operating in regional NSW for over 25 years.

With design, fit-out and refurbishment capabilities, they are an end-to-end partner for businesses looking to unleash the potential of their commercial space.

Often described as Tamworth's 'best-kept secret', Formline were flying under the radar as their brand identity was misaligned with a recently refreshed business strategy. 

Brand chemistry came recommended and after an initial exchange, the team at Formline were confident Bc would deliver a strategically aligned brand that fit the long term vision for the company.

 

The approach

Formline's current brand included a dated logo, as well as a limited colour palette of  red, white and grey. None of this conveyed their high quality work or them as the trusted, and experienced partner which Formline pride themselves on being. 

With this in mind, a complete brand refresh was on the cards including a brand new logo, colour palette and 'look and feel'. The new brand needed to be clean, minimal, sophisticated and aligned with the company's long term vision and core messaging - plus it needed to resonate with Formline's ideal customers. 

On the wish list were a new colour palette and a modern logo that was immediately recognisable and had the ability to standalone on marketing and construction materials including hard hats and billboards.

 


 

The process

Bc began the process by delving into Formline's brand positioning, personas and business strategy, getting to know exactly what the company wanted to convey with their new identity.

The next step was designing a series of brand mood boards to visually represent ideas for Formline's new brand identity alongside explanations for why each element has been chosen.

The mood boards allowed the Formline team to easily decide which areas had hit the mark and which had not, ensuring the feedback process was efficient and productive on both sides. 

Through each round of design, Formline fed back their thoughts which Bc listened to and deciphered as to how these comments needed to be reflected in the designs. 

"On every round of designs, we left feedback and Brand chemistry took it on board 100%, and in the next set of designs we could see the evidence of this. They understood what we wanted and then were open-minded about delivering to that." - Karyn McDonald, Business Strategy, Formline

The results

Bc delivered Formline a new brand identity which they are proud to take to market. The new logo, colour palette, icons and overall 'look and feel' are now completely aligned with their business direction and something the Formline team are excited to share. 

The new brand is strategic, minimal and perfectly aligned with Formline's company vision and plans for the future. The logo and colours speak to Formline's core business qualities: Trust, confidence and a proven methodology. And the brand is already resonating, key clients who got a sneak peek describe it as "trusted, professional, sophisticated and clever."

“Wow! What an experience - from start to finish Brand chemistry exceeded our expectations. With an efficient process and an expert team, they answered directly to our needs in delivering a brand identity that is not only aesthetically pleasing but strategically aligned with our long term vision and resonates with our client base.”
