Appian

Strengthening A Visual Foundation

Appian, a low code platform, has experienced tremendous growth over the past several years, but their internal creative team has been focused on the product and supporting day-to-day marketing. So we stepped in to provide a new visual direction that communicates the brand's attributes of simplicity, speed, and power.

GRAPHIC CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT

We designed a set of modular graphics that symbolize teamwork, technology, and process and represent the building blocks for business.

ICONS

The smallest details can make a major difference. Through the introduction of more colors and enhancing the line weights, we upgraded Appain’s iconography.

PATTERNS

We developed a series of abstract and architectural patterns inspired by elements in Appian’s office to create a cohesive brand identity centered on teamwork, technology, and process.

COLLATERAL MATERIALS

We applied the newly enhanced brand identity to create brand collateral that's congruent with Appian's core values and personality to support their sales and marketing strategy.

WEBSITE

To provide context for the newly enhanced brand identity, we developed a wireframe to illustrate how to apply the new brand guidelines on the website, including the new color palette, photography, icons, and custom patterns.

ALIGNING BRAND IDENTITY WITH MARKET STANDING

The result is an enhanced visual identity and foundation for a high-growth company designed to align with their business strategy and match their market standing.
