Our disruptive and eye-catching brand for technology firm IDentifi picked up three awards at last week's Transform Awards North America, with judges describing it as 'a great identity and positive brand based on real consumer and competitive insight.'

The Living team created the name, brand strategy and visual identity for IDentifi that won awards for:

  • Best visual identity from the TMT sector
  • Best brand development project to reflect change of mission, values or positioning, and
  • Best strategic or creative development of a new brand.
