Identity redesign for Saxtorp Trading

Brochure for Saxtorp Trading.

Challenge

THE CORE Create a more contemporary identity for Saxtorp Trading – one of Scandinavia’s leading companies for sales of construction machinery.
USAGE The logo and identity will be used on brochures, business cards, web site, etc.

Solution

THE RIGHT PEOPLE ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN MACHINES I wanted to highlight the coworkers at Saxtorp Trading, and their importance in the success for their customers. So, we did a photography session to create a image package with brand building images – focusing on the people behind Saxtorp Trading´s machines. Crispy images in an hard environment but with human warmth present.
HERITAGE The Swedish heritage is subtle present by the color scheme – yellow and blue colors. But to keep it contemporary they are more muted than the regular and more often used yellow and blue tones.
FITS IN BUT STANDS OUT As I usually do, I wanted to create a identity that feels like it belong in the branch that Saxtorp Trading operates in, but at the same time create a twist on it to make them stand out.
EASY TO USE The outcome of the visual identity redesign is a simple and strong identity that is easy to use.

Ad for Saxtorp Trading. One key design element is the 45 degrees corner (see the blue box right corner) – that element is inspired by the same angles used in the logo design.
