“HAA were wonderful to work with. Highly creative, and brilliant project managers. I suspect we were a challenging client, working alongside the United Nations Global Compact, with their own very particular priorities and design principles, but Human After All handled the 3-way complexities very well.”

John Elkington, Chairman, Volans

The Challenge

  • Volans is a London-based ‘market catalyst’ group, working with businesses, governments and civil society to address global systemic challenges.
  • In partnership with The United Nations Global Compact, Volans created Project Breakthrough - a content platform for inspiring and showcasing innovation projects within the circular economy.
  • We were asked to create a visual identity and website for the platform. Our work included logo creation, developing the name and narrative of the project, and establishing a consistent look and style for editorial, video and static image content.

The Solution

  • We began by conducting a brand essence workshop, helping Volans to further catalyse its mission, and to explore what ‘business sustainability’ means to its audience.
  • The findings of this workshop were distilled into a Brand Essence guide for Volans to use as an ongoing point of reference.
  • Through the course of several stages of collaboration, we worked with Volans to create the name ‘Project Breakthrough’, along with a matching campaign narrative.
  • We also gave Volans a visual identity kit to guide the deployment of its brand.
  • Finally, we provided Volans with physical and digital assets to support the roll-out of its new visual design - including presentation and marketing templates, office signage and social media guides.
