Datameer is an enterprise software for big data analytics which enable analyst to integrate any data, analyze, and visualize the data faster. The objective is to create a brand identity and extend it to all marketing touch points. My role, as the senior visual designer, was responsible to build a complete brand solution and establish a brand guidelines to ensure consistency throughout the marketing campaigns and product development.
Corporate Identity System
Trade Show Graphics
When Datameer launched its business, they immediately faced a level of competition. As a startup, they needed a complete solution for the branding. They didn't have any visual graphics or something to work on, so I was hired initially to build the image from scratch. The very first thing they need was to build a strong brand identity, which define their core products and company brand image.
After an in-depth discussion with the founder and the Marketing Executive team, the concept simply came from the name of Datameer itself "Data" and "Meer", which the word Meer means sea or ocean. The visual required to include the ocean wave elements. Why blue? Blue is known as the color most preferred by men, evoking ties to the corporate world. Furthermore, blue is associated with reliability and loyalty. If there was to be one color associated with ocean, it would be blue.

To establish a strong brand identity, consistency is the key. Strong and consistent branding helps clarify what your business stands for, allowing your business to communicate your purpose, your personality, and your promises. A consistent tone of voice, and a consistent brand identity, helps keep a business on-message. By having a set of brand guidelines means that the right branding is easily accessible to everyone, so everyone knows how to use it properly.
