How I successfully built Mteja360 brand identity
Mteja360 is a product by ABNO Softwares International,
It offers cloud-based Customer Experience Solution that helps you track, assign and respond to customer requests.
I had the privilege of helping come up with Mteja360 brand identity.
During a strategic meeting on Mteja360, I was invited to further understand the product and give my views on ongoing website development.
In the meeting, I was requested to review Mteja360 logo which they had developed internally.

Looking at the logo I failed to connect it with the product that I had fully understood.
If I couldn’t understand the identity, I was sure that taking the identity to the market would not yield the best results.
The initial brief was to just retouch the logo, which meant I had to keep all the initial elements and see how to best present them
BUT if I was to go that route the identity will be misrepresenting the product and wouldn’t like to be associated with it.
Instead of retouching the logo I spent few days brainstorming and finally coming up with a new identity which would better represent the product.
I loved the original logo color usage thereby maintaining it, but had to create new brand identity elements.
After days of thinking and several considerations, I finally settled on the logo below;
Mteja360 new logo
To be honest, as it is with most Creatives, I was not sure if they would like the proposed logo, I had gone contrary to the brief.
However, they LOVED the proposed identity.
What followed was a series of Mteja360 related branding projects such as;
banners, APP User Interface design, posters, fliers, media banner, presentations, stationery design, t-shirt design among others
And the official launch of the product through a successful event held by ABNO Softwares International.
