Wolf-Gordon is a family-owned company that values its history. We updated the existing logo to communicate the contemporary, modern, and relevant brand they became. The logotype was slimmed down, and included a mix of customized Futura (Paul Renner) and Gotham (Tobias Frere-Jones). Maison Neue (Milieu Grotesque) is the headline and text typeface. We then redrew the wolf emblem to match the revised logotype, and updated the overall color palette, implementing a vibrant blue as the company’s primary color.
Trade show presence is an important part of Wolf-Gordon’s marketing program. We designed new trade show booths, including an interactive booth for the 2013 International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) featuring Wolf-Gordon’s Wink, a paint that creates a dry-erase surface. The booth received Metropolis magazine’s “Metropolis Likes” and “Editor’s Choice” awards.
Another very important part of Wolf-Gordon’s visual identity redesign was to rethink and re-launch their online presence. Both the design and user experience are a departure from their competitors product-browsing experience. Focusing on their vast product catalog, the website served as a straightforward tool for interior designers to get fast access to the vast product line offered by the brand. Swiping left and right, one quickly and intuitively engages with their products.
