The brief

There were three parts to the brief:

All three elements needed to work together to form a cohesive brand with potential to be used as separate entities for five key areas of the business: Agricultural Science, Process Research, Nutritional Science, Analytical Science and Sensory and Applications.

The results

Ingenious created a beautiful new logo for the Innovation brand, incorporating individual icons for each of the Five Pillars within the main logo and using the leaf design and colours from the Finlays brand.

We also designed a stylish ‘seed head’ logo for the SEED Innovation Forum, a global community established by, but extending beyond Finlays, to share knowledge and innovation with the industry as a whole.

Our designs are to be used across all Finlays Innovation communications globally including online, intranet, email, presentations and marketing, as well as for workshops and invitations to the SEED annual conference.
