The award-winning post house recently underwent a brand makeover. The fun part was the Res team took on the ultimate challenge (drumroll) of becoming its own client – yikes!

Here’s a peek at the rebrand inspiration:

The rule of three is all around us.

Past. Present. Future.
Yes. No. Maybe.
Work. Rest. Play.
Blood, Sweat. Tears.
Good. Better. Best.

It can also represent what we do and whom we do it for.

You. The client. The solution.

This is where the inspiration started for the deceptively simple new logo and brand identity for Resolution, a craft based post, design and production outfit in Surry Hills, Sydney.

“The launch of the new website and rebrand was long overdue. It was a very exciting moment for us all to finally unveil the revitalised RES website that is now a true reflection of who we are as a company." says Kent Boswell EP at Resolution.

“We developed our brief based around where we had been, the problems we had discovered over the years, and what we wanted from the new logo, branding and website, looking to the future,” he says, adding: “We couldn’t put the project on the back burner as jobs came in, we had to make it a priority and work to a tight schedule and that was a great discipline to adhere to.”
