Our Brand

A strong brand is one of the most valuable assets an organization can own. We developed the Virtus Brand to better communicate that our service offerings are both high-end and flexible, two biggest needs of a high-growth organization. We needed to create an identity that not only looked amazing, but was functional and flexible.

Brand identity 01

Our Logo

Both strong and organic, logotype represents Virtus as a company with broad field of expertise. Typographical manner is simple, smart and reliable, yet it has some distinctive, lively features which makes it more human-oriented. Intersective parts of logotype are very subtle and defines company’s overall holistic approach. The logotype feels infinitely timeless and within the minimalist touches, it creates a unique and memorable twist.

It creates a perfect balance between a reliable and modern tone. The secondary colours consist of vibrant blue, bright red, rich green, and light grey.

Tone of Voice

Our tone of voice is the key to our process of generating copy, and to ensuring our content is on-brand. We developed our tone of voice to match the personality of the organization and ensure we connected with our audience.

Identity in Action

For a brand identity to have an impact, it needs to be applied in the real world. Here are a couple of examples of how our brand can be applied to create sales and marketing materials that stand out.

Website 03

Website

Our website is the primary source of information on our organization, so it was essential that we created a website that not only looks amazing, but easily translates our value propositions and services to our web traffic.

Interactions

Throughout our website we use interactions and micro-interactions as a way to bring our brand to life and better engage visitors.

Copywriting

Having a brand that looks amazing is great, but without striking content to bring it to life, brands fall flat. We translated our tone of voice into the copy for our website, consistently communicating how Virtus Groups helps our clients.

Summary 04

Summary

Creating a brand for your own organization, as opposed to a client, is always an interesting project. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome, as the brand we created has allowed us to better communicate who Virtus Groups is, what Virtus Groups does, who Virtus Groups does it for, and why our clients should choose us.
