Maison Lucien Gau is a family-run business listed as a living heritage, created in 1860, perpetuating the art bronzesmith profession. It manufactures and restores lighting fixtures and art furniture, mainly intended for a clientele of luxury hotels, residences, yacht builders and architects, all over the world. Based in Paris, the company has a showroom near Bastille, at the bottom of a splendid private courtyard. We were approached late 2016 to rethink the overall positioning of this legendary brand, which suffered from a lack of presence and visibility. By adopting a crafty and meticulous work method, we wanted to transcribe the soul of a company that had gone through the decades without ever compromising its know-how. The new visual identity is based on a fine "LG" monogram, balanced and symmetrical, resuming the shape of a chandelier, and on a serif typography entirely designed for the occasion. The graphic style, without any superfluous elements but with rigorous construction and the choice of materials, which required careful attention, complete the emergence of a new elegant and graceful branding.   (In collaboration with Camille Raynal) Publications :, Featured, 2017 Disciplines

Echo is the newest of the french smartphone makers. The brand belongs to Modelabs, a historic distributor in the phone market, which had a range of entry-level phones, a segment in which it enjoys a leading position in France. The new range of four smartphones, launched in June 2016, concentrates on entry-level and midrange products, with a positioning focused on pragmatism : to offer qualitative smartphones and smart design, with no frills; an ally of everyday life. A range of devises jam-packed with useful technology. We were asked to facilitate this bold launch by bringing a substantive work on the brand positioning, visual identity and branding. In connection with the team, we have overhauled the project's foundations to achieve central conclusions : the brand must present itself with simplicity, honesty and strength. It must get out of low-cost codes. It must reflect uncompromised quality standards while making them accessible to all. It demystifies the possession of quality technological objects. Brand Brothers has helped the brand to find its place an already crowded market. The studio has created the brand positioning and visual identity, all visual standards, the packaging design, the website (design and development) and the artistic direction of visual products. The logo is the backbone of this new promise : this original type design tells the echo and resonance, and opens a creative territory without boundaries that deploys on the whole universe of the brand.   Awards : Transform Awards 2017 (London), Best visual identity from: technology, media and telecommunications (Echo), Shortlisted   Publications : Behance, Best of Behance, 2017 Rebranding Design, Images Publishing, 2017 Infopresse (Canada) Brand New, Reviewed Abduzeedo, Branding Disciplines

The latest of the French smartphone players

The Montgolfière is a majestic and hidden place of nearly 2000m², located near the Saint Martin canal in Paris: more than a simple sports hall, this social sports club will be a fusion between several atmospheres (music, art, sport, food). This Parisian address will become the new meeting point for a heterogeneous neighbourhood. Scheduled to open in September 2018. This place, full of history, is an old hot-air balloon canvas factory built in the 1850s without a building permit. Originally the building did not have a roof allowing, exceptionally, hot-air balloons to take off directly from the factory. Its wooden structure and glazed corridors were later reinforced by Eiffel-type metal frames that covered the atrium with an imposing glass roof 18 metres high. We worked with the founders of the place, Basile and Ruben, to develop the visual identity. The logo, a typogram entirely designed for La Montgolfière, is a statutory lettering including subtle graphic accidents, revealing a bold state of mind. The "O's" are transformed into monograms, revealing the simplified design of a hot-air balloon. Supported by a simple graphic system, based on a fir green (the initial hue of the beams forming the framework of the facade) and the Panamera character, we have developed for pre-opening a visual language based on multiple typographical and photographic compositions and the production of strong verbal hooks. Posters, postcards, socks, totes bags, t-shits, flags, but above all a monumental tulle flag (6 meters high) welcomed a few hundred curious people last June. See you in September.   Publications : Communication Arts, Exhibit, 2018 Brand New, Reviewed, 2018 Behance, Best of Behance, 2018 AIGA, Eye on Design, 2018 Disciplines

Yoteq is the very first network of connected terminals, which distributes physical books with the possibility of return. The innovative concept is articulated around dispensing columns, each containing nearly 300 books and comic strips, searchable directly on site or remotely, and which make it possible to deliver and take back the items with great simplicity. Our creative proposal is oriented towards the materialization of bridges between culture and digital uses. Yoteq's primary vocation being to take the book to places of transit and to simplify its acquisition, we have chosen to go beyond the classic graphic territory of literature and the world of publishing, to offer a visual identity based on simplicity of use, innovation, diversity and access to culture. The symbol mixes the edge of a book with an arrow describing a circular route, symbolizing the availability of the book to the public at the very heart of urban flows, but also the possibility of return. We have developed an evolutionary graphic language based on the diversity of literary styles, the renewed pleasure of reading and movement, through bright colours and thick lines. We dressed the terminal in collaboration with product designer Pierre Charrié, designed the brand's editorial materials, the website and structured the branding for the official launch of Yoteq, which took place at the Paris 2018 Book Fair. In partnership with the SNCF, the first columns will be deployed in 5 stations in Paris and the inner suburbs before the end of 2018.

Shifting the lines

Wenovia is the centre of support for student entrepreneurship at the Université Paris Seine, composed of 15 schools and universities in western Paris, ranging from ESSEC to the University of Cergy-Pontoise, as well as renowned engineering schools. There are more than 37,000 students in the community; in the short term, Wenovia will be extended to Normandy universities. By boosting the students' capacity for innovation and boldness, the structure offers quality methods and support, enabling them to develop entrepreneurial projects during their studies. Brand Brothers was called upon to translate the ambition of this project into a visual identity. The first phase of the branding that we worked on was presented to the actors of the project and the local elected representatives, during the inauguration of Wenovia's Cergy-Pontoise coworking space in February 2018. The Wenovia logo is an original typographic design. Composed of capital letters, thick and solid, it includes 3 elements shifted within the lettering itself, referring both to the forward vision advocated by the approach, but also to the brutalist architectural style of the fief of Wenovia, Cergy-Pontoise (in particular its prefecture in the form of an inverted pyramid). We have developed a sober and structured graphic territory, in echo with the graphic radicalism of the logo, which will be brought in the coming months to expand on different physical, print and web applications.

Student entrepreneurship from Paris Seine University

Le contenu à dévoiler se place ici, changez ce texte par le votre Diatly is the turnkey platform that allows brands and marketplaces to work together easily and cost-effectively. It is a facilitator: it puts brands in touch with each other and enables them, via a single interface, to develop rapidly on e-commerce sites. Diatly works with La Redoute, Conforama, Amazon, the Fnac Darty group and Galeries Lafayette. Created in 2012, this French startup has more than 40 employees and raised 2 million euros at the beginning of 2018 to ensure its development in France and Europe.   We worked for 6 months on repositioning and rebranding the brand, initially called The French Talents. The new name, Diatly (from "Immediateatly", by Dominique David) is a powerful and imaginative summary of the strength of the solution. It will easily follow the company's evolution, which promises rapid international expansion. The new custom wordmark is a modern and graphic object. Formed of parallel segments, it tells the story of how brands and marketplaces move forward together thanks to Diatly. This meaning, evoked in a fligrane, is reinforced by the inclination of the I and the L (20° forward). Combined with this new visual identity, a simple graphic code allows to tell the brand story. A set of 6 vivid colours - working exclusively in pairs -, a collection of geometrical pictograms illustrating the products sold by brands working with Diatly, the choice of Platform font, new explanatory diagrams and refined graphic compositions form the backbone of the new branding. We also ensured the design of the new website (in collaboration with Camille Raynal) as well as its integral technical development. The presentation of the identity, crowned with success, took place gradually in front of all Diatly employees, then in the web and startups media.
