Total Rebranding of a Corporation

hGears

A New Global Group

 

Herzog GmbH and miniGears SpA, acquired by the international investment fund FINATEM,  join together in order to create a global leader in the production of gears and components.

 

The new Brand needed a new identity - to be repositioned on the worldwide market - and a support to the transition for the employees located in Italy, Germany and China.

Analysis

 

Market and competitor’s evaluation led us to think of a unique identity, different from all other

 global players.

Identity

 

The Big Idea is the ensamble of  two basic concepts: italian passion and german precision.

Development

 

Name, Logo, Pictogram, Payoff, the corporate video and the website are focused on enhancing the quality of engineering.

Transition

 

The transition process has been supported with a set of actions and events that involved the employees, clients, prospects, finantial institutions, press and suppliers.

Creative Concept

The concept is simple:

Gears are the heart of customer’s performance.

 

The main idea is to pull together 2 key elements:

A new Logo & Payoff

 

The study of the pictogram led us to avoid the use of the gear wheel  (symbol widely used by competitors), in favor of the concept of cutting.

The letters " h " and " g " are derived from similar forms in volumes and curves.

The choice of colors is far from the traditional colors of the area (shades of blue)

Digital Presence

 

  • 4 languages
  • multiuser management

Key Concept

 

hGears’ advanced engineering is the main concept we focused on.

Unlike competitors, which use library images or photos, we designed every market application by hand, showing the taylor made approach of the company on the engineering side.
