CONTENT PLANNING & STYLE ANALYSIS

Problem
There was many elements and concepts that Swell’s branding needed to encompass. The branding needed to be simple, masculine, with a emphasis on the outdoors and the beauty of the West Coast. They also needed their branding to incorporate the eco-friendly, outdoors-themed side of the brand, while still representing knowledgeable and reliable manufacturing to their distribution partners.

Solution
To combine all of these elements we created a brand that speaks to the West Coast, eco-friendly, outdoorsy side of the brand with colourful photography. We then took that beautiful photography and used text overlay to communicate important technical content on black backgrounds, to boost the text’s readability and highlight its significance. The end result is branding that relies primarily on photography for colour and frames the most important content in blacks and greys.
