Trivecs (pronounced “TRY-vecs”) is a marketing agency based in Quezon City, Philippines that specializes in marketing and activations projects, events planning, and manpower services.
Established in 1997, it works with consumer goods brands across different sectors. Past and present clients include local names like NutriAsia (UFC, Datu Puti), Purefoods, and Universal Robina and international powerhouses like Coca-Cola, Nestlé and Kraft.
To mark its 25th anniversary, I was approached by the agency to reimagine its brand identity and to help create a stronger brand presence as it starts to bounce back from the effects of the pandemic.
A Tried and True Evolution
The original iteration of the Trivecs brand identity was designed to be a sleeker, minimalist take on corporate design compared to its competitors. However, over the years, employee feedback has shown that the company’s identity needed to evolve and be more expressive.
Going back to the drawing board, it has been agreed upon that what it needed was an identity refresh to not just mark a new era in the company’s history but to also signal a sense of renewed purpose in a post-pandemic landscape.
A Tribute to Good Results
Originally designed in 2015, The Trivecs “T” icon is a simple mark that embodies the company’s commitment to helping bring brands to people and achieve the best outcomes possible, with consumer feedback and engagement front and center.
A Triumphant Glow Up
The refreshed Trivecs visual identity starts with an updated take on the agency’s brand mark. Although its design has been kept mostly intact, the mark has been remastered to perform better when used in small sizes.
The rest of the identity has been rethought from the ground up to further define and differentiate Trivecs’ brand voice. The new toolkit includes two new main typefaces, a brighter brand color, an expanded color palette and a key visual.
A Thirst for Disruption
Marketing is about causing the right kind of disruption through brand awareness. Throughout the identity, the lines in icon are transformed into an adaptive, colorful recurring visual inspired by glitch art and astronomy.
