My Role: Project ownership | Research | Logo concept & Design | Styleguide | Colour palette | Typography
Performers Factory, a startup aiming to transform individuals and organizations into high-performers, sought a logo identity that encapsulated their mission. They aimed to emphasize the transformation of underperformers into star performers, highlighting their unique approach to generating exponential ROI through investment in people. Additionally, the logo needed to signify their global reach and the platform connecting job seekers, mentors, and companies for mutual growth.
The design process commenced by exploring various concepts to visually represent exponential ROI growth. However, a pivot in focus occurred, centering on the core brand message: transforming underperformers and fresh talent into star performers.
The final concept emerged from a sketch portraying an individual enring Performers Factory (PF initials) and emerging as a star performer, symbolized by a star replacing the individual's head. This concept, a representation of transformation and growth, evolved into the symbol within the logo.
