RESEARCH & IDEAS
From the words: Innovation, movement, digital and connectivity. I researched how to visualized 5G and which is the visual reference that there are nowadays. I could find that speed, transfer, futurism, energy, connectivity, Bluetooth was visual references. From that, I define that 5G should be seen as an organism that can create shapes, letters and grow fast and be light. That’s why I create a brand identity from typography created with dots (electricity/energy). And it has movement and it’s rapidly evolving into other shapes.
I developed a complex motion identity using a random parameter, so the typeface is never the same. I applied a script to each letter that randomizes the movement of each particle but at the same time with slide controllers, you can edit different common parameters: speed/density or distance between dots/dot sizing. There are 4 sizes of dots: XXL, XL, L, and S. Each letter is editable and has independent movement. Additionally, it was added a lighting effect as a detail in a specific particle.
From that, I decided to use dark blue as a brand color that symbolizes technology. And I create all assets needed for the event.
CLIENT REVIEWI can’t recommend Sonia highly enough. While she was a member of my team I witnessed first-hand not just her talent, skill and creativity as a designer, but the tenacity and determination she showed to constantly learn, improve and exceed expectations. Not only was Sonia a great fit with the culture of the team, she was eager to make connections and share her expertise with the wider business. If you have the opportunity to hire Sonia for a role in the future, please do so, she will be a fantastic asset to your company.
