SolarWorks! designs and manufactures unique solar lighting and charging devices. The company is based in Delft, in The Netherlands and Johannesburg, South Africa.
SolarWorks! approached us in April 2014 to develop their corporate identity, branding guidelines, website, packaging, and various marketing tools. We began by redesigning their logo.
The SolarWorks! red is unmissable – a true reflection of their passion and enthusiasm for what they do.

logodIDENTITY, LOGO DESIGN

The new logo was developed in two stages. We initially used the existing blue, and a circular format, but a decision was taken to develop a second version without these restrictions. The logo became more linear, and red replaced blue. The slogan, “Power by Design”, was added to reflect their dedication to innovation and their belief that everyone has a right to well-designed, quality products. Branding specifications, and guidelines for its use were supplied in a mini brand book.
