Brand Identity

The refreshed brand identity included geometric shape elements that uniquely represented each sector of Legat’s project portfolio: learning, wellness, and community. They added visual appeal and pops of color that worked cohesively together. Each element had a symbolic story — an oval for learning and renewal of new generations of students, the square for strength and health, and the circle, evocative of community and togetherness.

Typography

Poppins typography was selected to be utilized across Legat’s website—headers, body text, as well as for brand collateral. As a geometric sans-serif typeface, Poppins offers clarity and structure for easy readability in all visual representations. The curvature and roundness of this typography selection reflect the welcoming tonality of Legat’s brand mission with a modern look and feel.

Color Selections

The primary colors represent the different segments that encompass Legat projects—learning, wellness, and community. The orange color is one of the core colors found throughout the Legat logo, branding materials, website, and represents the ‘community’ segment.

The lime green color selection was also chosen to represent the ‘learning’ sector, along with the blue which is visually representative of the ‘wellness’ sector.

Logo Design

An all-encompassing website revamp often goes hand in hand with brand rejuvenation to ensure a cohesive brand representation. ArtVersion refined the Legat logo typeface with different font weights — using a robust, bold style for ‘Legat’ contrasted with a delicate, slimmer ‘Architects,’ added a dynamic quality to the brand identity.

To accompany the visual design, there was a comprehensive refresh of Legat's messaging and narrative ethos. 

The content strategy team collaborated closely with Legat, meticulously crafting a narrative woven around a core theme: design with a human-focused lens. 

This central theme emerged from Legat's mission to underscore their positive impact on their communities and their commitment to enhancing lives. 

To weave the brand's revitalized identity into every aspect of its presence, Art Version also overhauled Legat's marketing materials. This included an updated brand style guide, redesigned collateral templates, modernized business cards, sleek presentation templates, and more.
