Colourworks was approaching 30 years in business, it had evolved from a company only supplying and servicing printers and scanners to a company that is also a software developer and has developed a range of software that integrates with the hardware to manage repetitive tasks such as workflows, quote approvals, invoicing and payments.
Headjam was engaged to reposition the brand, to move the company beyond just ‘hardware’ to be viewed as an innovative company and a leader in print and digital document management support. Our goal was to reposition Colourworks to be the leader in print and document management support.
Refreshing the logo involved modernising the typography, removing a CW monogram device and selecting a suite of supporting colours. We captured the sense of fun of the Colourworks team using an illustration style, to be used in branded collateral and for a series of animation videos and commercials. We also developed the campaign line ‘Colourworks. Innovation at work.’Read Hide the full case study

Desired Consumer Response
I understand what Colourworks does and trust them to enhance my business while considering community and environment.
To express the new Colourworks direction as an innovative and fun document management solutions company, we weighed up the pros and cons of keeping the existing name or developing a new name. The value in the existing name tipped the balance. Refreshing the logo involved modernising the typography, removing a CW monogram device and selecting a suite of supporting colours.
To capture the sense of fun of the Colourworks team, an illustration style was developed for use in brand collateral and for a series of animation videos and commercials. We also developed the campaign line ‘Colourworks. Innovation at work.’
