Why would anyone dare to pass judgment over your brand by introducing a series of simple questions? Well… you are right. There are no easy answers, no universal guidelines, no brand horoscopes, nor instant solutions. We can’t tell you which character from a book your brand is, but what we can tell already, that there is a lot that can be achieved to improve your brand.

Answering our brief questionnaire must have been quite a facile exercise but a one that proved there is focus and vision behind your brand. I guess the next question is: What is the next challenge your brand awaits? As we are all ears and excited to undertake the challenge together. Excited about the future of this benevolent acquaintance. NECON.

Syonix

Industry / Location

IT Solutions / Zurich, Switzerland

Scope of Work

Visual identity / Brand collateral design / Web design & development

Flexibility and dynamism are the main features that characterize Syonix – a Swiss IT consulting which designs innovative and highly customized software solutions for business along with consulting services in the field of IT.

The Task

Having been appointed to design an identity in touch with the ambitions of the company’s owners, Necon decided to highlight the wide array of Syonix’s competencies by creating three sub-brands. Each of the sub-brands consists of the same signet ring, distinguished by three different colors.

The three colors combine in the main brandmark.

The Result

This new identity allowed for organization and improved coherence across the whole of the company’s communication.

The Website

The project was finished with a new website completing the identity at its most vital touchpoint.

We are working with Necon for over two years now and continue being impressed with their work. They treat every single project as something special and create outstanding identities and graphic designs. Besides their high skill in operational work they are also a reliable business partner when it comes to project management and deadlines.
