Wits Interactive Group decided to start a spatial design consultancy firm in 2012, specializing in designing interior/exterior environments, wayfinding and environmental design. When they approached me for a company name and its corporate identity design, a few interesting options was arrived at.
The name that I believed would best suit this new entity – TERRAWITS. It was a perfect marriage of ‘earth’ relating to physical space and the group company name. Importantly, the name had gravitas.
Design Idea : DECONSTRUCTING SPACES
Reinterpreting space by breaking it down to its constituents. This creates wholesome parts that help the client brand’s DNA to infuse the larger whole. Therefore the client brand is brought alive in an atmosphere that its customers would love to experience.
The symbol articulates the concept of ‘Deconstructing Spaces’ in a smart, modern design.
Client : Wits Interactive Group
Agency : Phenomenon Brand Architects
After 60 years of partnering healthcare globally, Ipca (INR 3,000 Cr company) wanted to modernize its image in keeping with the changing times. The new identity must be not only be relevant to Ipca’s business in India but in over 110 countries where it operates.
Why :The old brand identity had its roots in the pharmaceutical company’s foundation-setting mission that has seen Ipca partnering healthcare globally since decades. Today with Ipca having expanded geographies, embraced new cultures and set global standards, a more relevant and dynamic expression of this evolved organization is called for.
Genesis : For over 60 years, human life has been the raison d’être for Ipca. The organization’s ethos is firmly intertwined with life’s DNA while R&D and scientific advancements power its pharma engine.
New Symbol : The butterfly represents life at its energetic best. At its heart is a molecular structure endorsing Ipca’s pioneering research work. The butterfly is in flight, matching the soaring aspirations of contemporary Ipca. The light Ipca blue colour is associated with health, healing, tranquility and understanding, in addition to wisdom, trust, loyalty and confidence. Essentially, traits that are second nature to a pharmaceutical organization.
New Font : A modern font, Myriad gives the Ipca logo a smart, avant-garde styling and makes for easy recognition as well. The power colour black lends gravitas that the long established, successful organization aptly deserves.
New Tagline : A DOSE OF LIFE. It’s a concise yet evocative expression that communicates Ipca’s key reason for being in a clear, direct and engaging manner. It defines what the organization strives to achieve every day. As the world’s largest manufacturer of Atenolol, Chloroquine Phosphate, Furosemide and Pyrantel salts, this statement of purpose is reflective of what fires Ipca to discover, develop and deliver new drugs to ensure human life bounces back to its healthiest best.
Launch :Ipca’s new identity was launched in October 2011 at CPhI, Frankfurt to international acclaim. It signified the coming of age of the company in a decisive and visionary manner.
And the butterfly officially takes flight.
