Inchoo Visual Identity Redesign

Inchoo Visual Idenity v3

I can’t believe one year already passed since the time we contacted MIT design studio to help us in visual identity redesign process. I believe some of you noticed a new logo and some changes on our Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn pages. In this post, I will show you some of the offline materials. However, the story is not complete. We are in the process of redesigning a biggest component – our website.

The partner we chose – MIT design studio has an awesome design team. In addition, the same people are behind locally famous Lega-Lega T-Shirt brand. (Here in Osijek slang, “Lega” stands for “Buddy“). Although it is quite unfortunate their eCommerce platform is not Magento, you have to admit the site looks lovely.

There is a funny story behind a company name – Inchoo. Here in Croatia, you can’t name your company the way you want. By the law, you need to use either Croatian word, Latin or Ancient Greek. Is it silly? Of course! So is our government. Back in 2008., I wanted to have a name that will sound fine in English and at the same time obey the law, I had to spend a few nights with Latin dictionary and find the words that will sound ok. When I first saw the word “Inchoo”, my search was over. Inchoo stands for “to begin, commence”. But… I didn’t chose it for the meaning.

Back to the topic – visual identity redesign. eCommerce stores and web applications are platforms used by our end users. The most common form of the internet and app Interface today is square. Square is also omnipresent in Croatian identity. Therefore, a choice of square in the logo has a practical and traditional background. To make it fun, MIT gave it additional symbolism of Inchoo Pacman. Pacman movements in the maze symbolise searching for new and better solutions.

Except square, logo contains the initial of company name, which gives all the positive characteristics of the letter “i” – ideas, innovation, information, imagination, inspiration.
