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 could see that the idea and concept behind the logo was a great fit with the future growth of the business, where increasingly technical nous and expertise have to filter through all the stages of the creative process,” he explained.
