Black n Wright identity

Close

Overview

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

I recently engaged Digital Tsunami to design and build my 60-page website. I'm a website copywriter who relies heavily on web-generated business, so my own online presence needs to be impeccable.

The solution that Digital Tsunami supplied is brilliant. It meets my needs perfectly; it's clean, bold, elegant, fast, and easy to edit. I've had lots of very positive feedback about it, and since launch, my request for quote rate and conversion rate have increased markedly.

The team at Digital Tsunami was incredibly responsive, delivering a solution well ahead of deadline. Their technical knowledge was exceptional, they were innovative, and they were very meticulous. What's more, they understood my business and technical requirements and translated them into a user-friendly, refined, professional site which is conceptually simple and cohesive.

I have no hesitation in recommending the website design services of Digital Tsunami to any business .. that needs a stand-out online presence.

The launch .. was a success. We were able to present this live on a Wireless connection during our Sydney, Australia sales conference on a location with very limited internet bandwidth. This proves the technology used .. renders light webpages which are easy to download on a browser.

Comments I've heard from our employees were all positive and reflected precisely what we were looking for: a simple but concise, clean and effective webpage.

We acknowledge the timeframe given to you was extremely short but nevertheless you have sucessfully delivered the project on schedule .. the critical success factor was communication and availability of Digital Tsunami's team.

I am very glad we were able to partner with such a professional team as yours and I am confident any other initiatives with you will be as successful.
