eLearning Industry Image

eLearning Industry

Powerful & playful really do look good together.

The Client

eLearning Industry is a leading online platform that serves e-learning professionals and businesses by providing inspiring, industry-specific content and high-end marketing tools and resources.

Almost 10 years since its birth, eLI came to AG for help establishing a fresh brand identity that would reflect the company’s growing

global audience and its unique position in the market.

The Solution

Even though eLI is a multi touchpoint brand serving a diverse range of audiences mainly from the US, India, the United Kingdom and Canada, we took a fresh look at what they have in common and decided to create a fun, agile brand based on one core value shared by all: the desire to learn and a profound appreciation for education.

We opted for a bold and dynamic redesign of the logo and translated the brand’s pillars: Community, Teamwork, Responsibility, Progress and Productivity into Melissa the Bee, our symbol and friendly mascot. The brand’s playfulness is highlighted by a complementary graphic system inspired by the wonderful ‘dance language’ of the honey bees, while a set of allegorical illustrations represent different personalities or work habits within our audience.

With a distinct and extensive set of brand tools, eLI is re-positioned as a powerful category leader, aptly equipped to take on new challenges and able to communicate in a meaningful way across distinctly different audience segments.

Viva Wallet Image

Viva Wallet

Connecting a fintech brand to a global audience.

The Challenge

In a time of FinTech solutions, new technologies and empowered customers, the financial services industry is experiencing change at an accelerated rate. At this point Viva Wallet, a global, cloud­based digital payments factory, commissioned AG to help create a more

future­facing Brand Identity. Viva Wallet is active in 5 European capitals, including London & Brussels and is a Principal Member of MasterCard and Visa.

The solution

We set out to help Viva Wallet with their continuing European expansion by redefining their brand identity. The brand identity system is inspired by the way we traditionally hold our money. The wallet, and more specific the money clip, a device typically used to store cash and credit cards in a very compact fashion for those who do not wish to carry a wallet. In the concept of simplifying all bank and payment processes, VivaWallet’s mark represents the wallet on a digital age.

The bespoke font designed for the identity is based on a modern geometric sans serif, giving the brand name perfect readability in both screen and print environments.

The Viva Wallet logo, the wordmark and the tone of voice for the new brand, communicate a friendly, fresh yet dynamic company that is truly, open to all payments.

Coperaco Coffee New York Image

Coperaco Coffee New York

Elegant new life of a desirable product.

The Company

Coperaco is a boutique coffee roaster company operating in New York, Mexico and Colombia. Their new cafe in New York creates an idyllic sanctuary where patrons can savor the high-quality, carefully-roasted brew.

The coffee created by Coperaco—which can be found at some of the world’s best restaurants and hotels—is hand-roasted in small

batches, and focused on the farming and harvesting of the fruit, creating a connection to the earth. Approach

AG was asked to help create their brand elements, starting from their most extrovert point. Their coffee bags. Our role was to re-design their 12 & 35 oz coffee bags, giving an elegant new life and a desirable character to the product, bringing to life the components that holistically make up the Coperaco brand.

The illustration wrapping the bags take us a magical journey discovering the world’s best coffee plantations, local farmers and beautiful lands, rewarding excellence & craftsmanship. The coffee tree is there to remind us that producers are the heart of what makes coffee great.

Levantes Family Farm Image

Levantes Family Farm

A food product that adds value to handcraft.

The client

Levantes is a family farm in Evvoia, Greece who produce artisan small-batch Extra Virgin Olive Oil. At Levantes Family Farm, each member has a strategic role in order to produce an excellent small batch crop.

Approach

Our collaboration was based on the need of creating a Visual Language for a new

product line, holding the family’ s values and experiences. From the very first moment, we interviewed all family members. The results setted up a very knit group, with each family member having a clear role and duties. This led us to photograph and then illustrate each member at work, presenting a typical day at the farm.

Mr. Kyriakos ploughs the field, Mrs. Stellina collects with her hands the fruit of the trees, Markos carefully separates the leaves from the fruit and so on. The new brand image of the farm itself is its people and we present them in the packaging and the overall communications of the family business.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the head of communications at Institut français de Grèce.

Since its founding in 1907, the French Institute has played a vital role in our country’s history, not only as a hub of French education and cosmopolitanism, but also as an intrepid defender of freedom of speech and expression, guiding and supporting Greek intellectuals, artists and scientists, in times of political and financial uncertainty and striving to make their work universally accessible.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire AG Design Agency?

Design & Develop the new website for the Institut français de Grèce.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to re-structure our website into something new, fresh and functional. We sought to introduce the new Digital Identity for the Institut français de Grèce, rather than just redesigning our website’s templates.

SOLUTION

How did you select AG Design Agency?

AG Design Agency has a strong approach in visual communication case studies. Their multidisciplinary solutions in a diverse range of national and international projects made us feel confident about the expected results of our collaboration.

Describe the project in detail.

The Agency undertook the User Experience research and analysis, the design of the new User Interface, the implementation of the website programming and the Institute’s digital brand (re)positioning strategy.

What was the team composition?

The project involved a UX/UI Designer, a Business & Data Analyst and two full stack Developers, dealing in daily basis with our team.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Given the Institute’s extensive program of educational and cultural activities and the fact that the website is used by a diverse audience of different ages and needs, a carefully mapped strategy was created which led to a radical change in the way the information is organized and presented.

The new digital portal of the French Institute of Greece is more user-friendly and easily accessible to all its visitors, providing intelligible categorization of the information regarding course registrations, exam results, events, film screenings and historical content.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We had a very tight workflow. The project was launched in less than 3 months of work after the initial briefing, including the time consuming data entry! We had a weekly status update where the most crucial decisions where made.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their passion in detail and their deep analysis on every single solution was impressive.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I don’t think so. We need time to understand how our audience reacts with the new functionalities. New features may be added at a later stage.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the founder of eLearning Industry Inc., the leading online platform that serves professionals and businesses by providing inspiring, industry-specific content and high-end marketing tools and resources. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire AG Design Agency?

eLearning Industry Inc. was created in 2012 as a one-man show from a small cafe and the next coming years it grew rapidly. While our beginnings were humble, we are now proud to say that more than 650.000 e-learning professionals visit our platform each month.

Since our identity was limited to our logo which no longer fully expressed our values, we asked AG Design Agency for help, establishing a fresh brand experience that would reflect the company’s growing global presence and unique position in the market.

AG Design Agency, going a step further, challenged both parties (AG & eLI) to create a motivating and inspiring visual system that would set new standards for an industry often seen as dull and impersonal.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to refresh our look n feel and mostly to reposition our core brand values. Our goal was to develop a distinct Brand Identity system for eLearning Industry, our rapidly growing online publishing platform, and digital marketing powerhouse by creating its own distinct personality.

We also needed to redesign the user interface of our e-commerce website into a simple but engaging, user-friendly platform to introduce and sell our competitive products.

SOLUTION

How did you select AG Design Agency?

My team did a deep research into the market, looking for experienced brand design agencies with skills in developing powerful design solutions for a diverse and international clientele. We were not looking for an ephemeral, but for a long-standing collaboration.

We chose AG Design Agency because of its proven portfolio of quality work, their strategic thinking behind each decision, and their strong knowledge to train our team on how to implement and most importantly, evolve the design elements they created for our brand.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

At an early stage, we had a series of discovery meetings to get to know each other and discuss our goals and objectives. AG Design Agency presented us with their capabilities and a selection of branding & website projects in order to have a clear understanding of their design process and outcome.

Within the first three weeks, we received a super detailed presentation of branding proposals. We chose unanimously and at the first sight the selected direction. It was a sweet shock for all of us, because it was a totally unexpected direction for us, until that moment.

Then AG’s team handled an about a two-week feedback session before delivering the requested brand material one after the other. In parallel, AG was in constant collaboration with the User Experience expert and our inhouse development department, designing all the templates for our e-commerce platform.

What was the team composition?

We were assigned a project manager to support us as the main point of contact throughout the project. The Creative Director of AG Design Agency managed a team of 2 Art Directors, 2 UX/UI Designers, as well as a Quality Assurance resource working behind the scenes, 1 illustrator, and 1 copywriter.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Most importantly our new logo, brand identity, and website has inspired all our team in a significant way. It describes the e-learning community and our role in this challenging market.

We purposefully moved away from the seemingly rigid and conservative “Tree of Knowledge” logo and translated the brand’s pillars: Community, Teamwork, Responsibility, Progress, and Productivity into Melissa the Bee, a symbol that reveals wisdom, strength, and harmony, an encouragement to open communications and a unified community.

We hear positive feedback on the rebrand from existing and potential customers.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The project manager and the rest of the team that we were assigned were easy to communicate with and provided us frequent updates. We connected over several online digital tools at least twice a week to get all things done. AG’s team not only reached their timeliness but completed earlier than planned.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We were blown away by the unexpected solution they came up with, to replace our old logo and the transformation of our until then dull website into a functional yet beautiful e-shop.

We learned much more than we thought possible, and we appreciated their proactivity in proposing solutions that they were not asked for. We have already discussed expanding our collaboration for other website needs we have soon.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Honestly, I haven’t much to improve. I believe we had a smooth and efficient collaboration and efficiently beautiful results.
