Time for a rebrand

Quiller Consultants is an insight-driven consultancy committed to achieving commercial advantage through reputation, strategy and insight. With new leadership taking the reins, the brief was to deliver a re-brand that reflected the contemporary, global nature of the Quiller team and the work that they do.

Standing out from the crowd

The team needed to distinguish Quiller from competitors while keeping a clear focus. The ‘Q’ in Quiller had special internal meaning as to query, question and quibble is a key part of the Quiller brand. I took this as an opportunity to bring the ‘Q’ to the forefront for a new visual direction.

Putting the ‘Q’ into Quiller’s brand

The new Quiller revolves around the Q, which consists of one speech bubble nestled within the other to demonstrate the art of communications. Integrated into the brand’s wordmarks, it can also be used as its own visual device.

Bold, vibrant and

I used a bright red-orange as the core brand colour, paired with black, grey and white for high contrast and impact. I set this against tangerine orange, mustard yellow as well as brilliant and peacock blues to form a secondary palette for visualising complex elements such as graphs, charts and timelines.

Sans serif typefaces Barlow and Helvetica are used to provide a clean look and feel across all print and digital media.

Building clarity and consistency

I applied the new visual identity across corporate stationary such as business cards, letterhead and email signatures, with the Q mark as a focal point throughout.

Empowering the team to use the new identity

I designed easy to use PowerPoint and Word templates for presentations and pitch documents. Providing extensive brand guidelines helped the team understand how to use the new styles and I provided training to give live demonstrations of how to use each asset.

Bringing Quiller’s expertise online

I overhauled Quiller’s WordPress website with the new visual identity, including pages to describe services and case studies.

Distinctive look a hit with clients

The visual identity was well received internally and by Quiller’s client base. It has been applied to proposals, presentations, event invitations, newsletters and more.
