Black n Wright identityClose
Black n Wright is a nascent Australian film and television production company.
Founded by lawyer Glenn Wright, the company needed a brand name and identity which would reflect both the past century of filmmaking and the contemporary world.
The founder’s interest in movies and his name suggested a play on early ‘black and white’ cinema. In order to personalise and make it memorable, current .. and able to be trademarked, “Black n Wright” was proposed.
Adopting the top level domain ‘.film‘, allowed us to reinforce the focus of the company.
When creating a new identity for a startup (or reinventing or refining the identity of an established enterprise), it is a process we like to call: ‘The birth of a brand’.
Any brand identity is comprised of: a brand name (and domain name), logo, brandline, font, colour palette, ‘tone of voice’ and visual assets.
To maximise creative input, a detailed brief was inserted into a crowd-sourcing platform. Scores of submissions were received, with a plethora of conventional imagery of cameras, celluloid and sprocket holes. Eventually, the undiluted strength of a simple wordmark and colour scheme became apparent.
Design is primarily not about what is added, but what is deleted .. until the purest essence remains.
This bold identity has been fundamental to the website and business card.

From Our Clients
(We) took a fairly substantial audit of .. sophisticated sites both technically and creatively .. Out of six prominent designers, Digital Tsunami stood out.
The quality of the images, the sophisticated management of text .. together with smooth animations makes (our) website of very high calibre.
I would personally rate this site in the top 2 percent of world wide web sites today.
With a brief timeline to ensure we had a web presence and launch coinciding with our 10 year anniversary, Digital Tsunami delivered. On time. On budget. Great Effort!
I worked with Andrew on a photography project that involved a high level of visual complexity for a multinational client. Andrew was clear and professional in his briefing, but at the same time, was open to other ideas and approaches.
I would like to thank you for your tremendous contribution to Foodbank over the years.
The organisation certainly wouldn’t be where we are today without your support!
Since 2003, Digital Tsunami has collaborated with Personal Broadband Australia to deliver many online solutions, including the latest www.pba.com.au site.
Central to the development process is Digital Tsunami's thorough understanding of the project needs, clear and constant communication, and creative, innovative and meticulous approach to delivering solutions.
The results are clean, intuitive, refined and cohesive, with rapidly loading pages and extremely high usability.
The benefit to PBA of this long-term relationship has been the highly effective way in which Digital Tsunami has implemented and enhanced my vision on every project.
