The management was satisfied with the brand update I had achieved so far, but I saw potential for more.
Being the only designer in a fast-paced growing company, there was a lot do be done. Nevertheless, I managed to start a series of brand strategy workshops, aka Discovery Sessions, to help them understand the brand better and to create space for design within the company.

Creating a Brand Brief provides a clear purpose and direction for the brand. Unlike many competitors, the new Mobius Labs aims to be radically different, with a clear voice and technology, by looking beyond the normative tech jargon. This way, it becomes more accessible to everyone, regardless of job title or subject expertise.
To keep everyone in the loop, I created a design system on Notion so that everyone would have access to the new brand. From values to guidelines, to all necessary elements across the teams, like presentation templates (for client pitches, by industries, for stand-ups and weekly meetings), business cards and letter templates, an automatic email signature generator, social media covers, case studies and a curated Unsplash album for everybody to use.
The new face of Mobius Labs was launched in November 2021. The rebranding contributed to a successful funding round of €5.2 Million led by French Venture Capital firm.
After the webs launch I used heat-maps and user screen recordings to further improve the user experience of the website.
We know mockups are not everything, and working from home did not contribute to having an in-person brand experience. Check some of the pictures below to see some applications of the brand IRL.
