Cleevio is a tight-knit team of web and mobile designers and developers, working on both client work (mostly mobile apps) and inhouse projects. It’s these self-started projects that are increasingly Cleevio’s main focus.
Cleevio’s old website and identity presented an idea of an enthusiastic team of young mobile developers who just make apps for other people. It was time to grow up and show the company’s evolved philosophy – working on own projects and forging longstanding partnerships with selected clients.
“Cleevio invests talent and resources into mobile ideas”
As mentioned above, Cleevio’s main expertise lies in mobile apps. We wanted to show that in the identity in a smart and non-obvious way (no phones and tablets in the logo, please!). That’s why from the beginning most of our concepts revolved around touch gestures – swiping, pinching, directly manipulating objects on screen.
In the end we also wanted to hint back at the old Cleevio logo by having a circular symbol with a stylized letter C and went for one of the simpler concepts.
We liked the idea of showing touch-based gestures in the identity so much that we decided to show it also in icons and other visual elements.
Apart from the logo and iconography, the brand is built on:
• Strong, ownable colors (few companies use yellow for their brand)
• Fun and confident content (copywriting and photography)
• Unique, not overused typeface Sailec
If there is one common goal to Cleevio’s new look, it’s that everything should be simple. That’s most visible in the new website, which doesn’t use any elaborate complicated menus or overly complex content. What’s most important is to show Cleevio’s inhouse projects and hint at the fact that they’re industry veterans.
