The agency’s journey over the last 14 years culminates in a redefined identity that not only mirrors its evolution but signals a commitment to being at the forefront of digital innovation
The simple word mark allows us to scale, and has been engineered to allow us to maintain a memorable clarity throughout our brand. The simple stylisation of the ‘&’ as a ‘+’ solidifies our commitment to digital.
Keeping it simple in it’s execution, we only ever present a horizontal lockup, there’s sufficient kerning on either side of the ‘+’ to keep things comfortable as we scale down.
We combine the Weltkern’s Everett Light typeface with IvyPresto display as our primary typefaces, the combination of these adds an elegance to clarity and allows us to highlight key words, and adds emphasis to headlines. Everett is a typeface engineered for clarity and can be used as headlines or body, and due to the unique letterforms allows to maintain brand character throughout, whilst using IvyPresto as a prestige alternative we can combine these two to create a unique visual.
Our core colour palette remains streamlined, leading with white and black, with the use of a core brand blue as a brand highlight.
Our new website was designed with a clear focus to coherently communicate our offering without jargon or decoration. Embracing a minimal approach allowed us to design with a clear goal in mind. A simple grid structure allows content to flow seamlessly, whilst using simple oversized section headings and headlines to be bold and straight to the point.
Micro-interactions guide the user, utilising forced scroll and marquee text to add emphasis, and elegant hover states enhance the experience on laptop and desktop devices.
Our brand utilises motion to elevate ourselves, primarily with the use of marquee headlines that is used through our website and digital platforms.
We have a bank of 3D assets that are used throughout many channels and touchpoints, with a chromatic 3D representation of our ‘+’ mark.
In crafting our motion design guidelines, we prioritise a dynamic and energetic approach to visual storytelling. While we don't impose strict rules, we encourage the use of lively and frenetic motion to captivate and engage our audience. White space, in particular, holds a pivotal role in our creative process, allowing motion to breathe and content to shine.
This isn’t just a facelift; it's a strategic transformation. Show + Tell doesn't just provide digital solutions; it crafts digital experiences that leave an indelible mark. The agency’s journey over the last 14 years culminates in a redefined identity that not only mirrors its evolution but signals a commitment to being at the forefront of digital innovation, pushing boundaries, and creating digital narratives that resonate and endure.
