  • Description
    A brand can be only truly meaningful if you let us understand you, your product, and your market. That's why every branding project in CRU starts with an assessment to identify, what is needed. Do we need to define a clear vision first, need to define the brand hierarchy, or can start right away with distilling your brand? Afterward, we create an aspirational story & visual moods. This will be the source code of your brand. Only if it's all aligned: Our senior team crafts an extraordinary Visual Identity.

  • Description
    Every branding project made by CRU starts with an assessment. We speak on one side about your internal perspective (your goals, your vision, your offering) and on the other side, we need to get a view of the market. Based on the results we align you guys and find the right direction. This sets the perfect ground for crafting your source code: the brand story. You can use it internally as well as for external communication.

Merantix Momentum — Brand Identity

Project made for Merantix Labs GmbH in the Software & Computer Services industry for a B2B audience in 2022.If you consult the KMUs in Germany, you are normally afraid of frightening all the ‹Manfreds from Mainz›, who take decisions in those companies. If you work as an high profile AI Consultancy, you want to make them a little bit frightened. You want the provoke the braveness within them and bring it out.That’s what we did for Merantix Momentum. To provoke and to show the world what they are about: Keep Moving Forward.

La Mæson — Website

Ongoing project for LA MÆSON d.o.o. in the Real Estate industry for a B2B / B2C audience since 2020.LA MÆSON is much more than a tiny home. It was built from our belief that true luxury lies not in abundance, but in self-sufficiency. Each MÆSON is pre-configured like a boat, marrying timeless design to thorough functionality—and exploiting every square centimetre. All appliances and equipment are exactly where you’d want them to be. Once you click that ›order‹ button you are going to get everything you need for good living. And nothing you don’t.We created the brand identity including a custom designed word mark as well as the design and development of the website.

Story
The French know a thing or two about quality, especially when it comes to wine. They have hundreds of classification labels. And at the top of this arcane taxonomy sits cru. At CRU Berlin, we make Brand Design instead of wine. But we have picked our name carefully: We will deliver work of indisputable quality.

Collaboration
What was the objective behind your collaboration?
The agency planned, implemented and guided us through an intensive UX-process including extensive User-Testing, Protoyping and the creation of the new user centric sitemap. Workshops were held and the whole project thoroughly documented.
What did you enjoy the most during your collaboration?
Fast-Paced-Thinking meets expertise and a great work ethos. The whole experience was really professional and had a great result. Even though we were not able to physically meet (due to the pandemic), the agency was quite adaptive and choose the right tools and methods of colloboration.
Are there any areas for improvements?
It was perfect. 100% recommendation!
