MULS identity

Macquarie University Law Society (MULS) is an association for law students, dynamic in both  professional and social activities at the University and within the Sydney legal community.

The Executive Committee commissioned Digital Tsunami to develop a website for the association, and to redevelop the MULS identity.

While the brief was not constrained by University policy, Digital Tsunami devised an identity (and a website) which were entirely compliant with the Macquarie University brand style guide within the strong contemporary feel which the young students demanded.

Integrating components of the university’s brand the central lighthouse was prominently positioned on a liquid sea below a seven pointed star to convey a brilliant beacon on a constantly changing landscape.

The classical serif font, bold colour and capital letters all imbue the identity with contemporary confidence and the prospect of a bright future.

Digital Tsunami also designed and printed stationery, periodical student magazines, freestanding banners and delivered a website.

 

Recruitr identity

Recruitr is a Brisbane based company which places candidates in senior and strategic roles within the construction, mining, oil and gas, engineering and architecture sectors.

Digital Tsunami was commissioned to deliver a web presence for the company, and as a requisite first phase, proposed an evolution of the existing identity.

To announce the imminent launch of the new website, Digital Tsunami designed and integrated a dramatic animation, featuring a jet aircraft rapidly flying across the page to reveal the brand name.

The contrails left in this aircraft’s wake created horizontal stripes on the letters, and together with its’ final forward-facing position, evinced an arrowhead and shaft. This potent symbol of targeted placement and of rapid-fire career advancement, both aptly reflected the brand philosophy.

The use of a strong font, bold colour and capitalised terminal letter all imbued the brand with confidence and strength.

Digital Tsunami also designed and printed stationery, selected stock photography and delivered a website.

 

M&O identity

M&O is a provider of technical and safety training and services for the mining, resources, and offshore oil and gas sector on locations across the globe.

Digital Tsunami was engaged to develop a software solution and deliver a web presence for client access. During the development period, a refinement of the brand identity was considered.

The development process began with a lightning bolt of creative inspiration. Literally sketching on a paper napkin, the concept was formed in just seconds, (although 20 years of creatively connected neurons made the inspiration possible)!

The concept began with the initials M and O (derived from the company’s original name, Marine and Offshore). The “O” could obviously form a globe, but a much more subtle approach was apparent. By converting the “M” into a series of small triangles, they represented both the energy of a gas flare and visually extrapolated to infer a massive globe on a blue square of ocean.

The identity was devised to enable the brand to stand comfortably amongst the globally recognised petroleum brands which are its clients.

Digital Tsunami also developed software and a web interface for this client.

 

traintrac identity

traintrac is the product name for an online software solution developed by Digital Tsunami for a training organisation in the offshore oil and gas sector. M&O is a provider of technical and safety courses (including fire-fighting and emergency rescue) in locations around the world. At the time, their base of operations was Macae, Brazil.

Digital Tsunami was engaged to develop the software, deliver a web presence for client access, and as a preliminary step, to devise a brand identity.

Given the name and the nature of the business, two parallel lines were used to separate and connect the words comprising the brand name. The represent both the literal train tracks and symbolise the pipes which are used in the exploration and production of offshore oil and gas.

A bold font was devised to reflect the strength and robust knowledge which the training delivers.

Digital Tsunami also designed and printed business cards, and developed the traintrac software and web interface.
