Interior & Branding for Retail Shop

At our first meeting with Hui from 32nd he briefed us on the interior and branding requirements for the new shop. Working to a tight deadline we were tasked with creating a new brand identity. We started out by researching other companies who traded with mobile and smart device accessories in which we found how important vibrant colour use was.

The products 32nd sell are supplied directly from China – a unique selling point and with Hui and his wife both originating from China we were keen to explore Chinese numerology. Interestingly the number 32 in Chinese culture preaches that the only sure constant in life is change. This tied in well with the fact 32nd were selling products that would change the appearance of a mobile and smart device.

The number 32 has a hexagram associated with it known as “Heng” this shape (which could be compared to an uppercase H) provided the basis of the brand identity. Hui and his wife loved the direction of the brand and we developed a logo which was later applied to the store front and packaging.
