Insperity | Sparking a New Visual Design
Administaff loved their octagon icon, from the shape of their receptionist desk to the rings made for the founders, the octagon was literally everywhere. This presented a huge challenge, not only logistically, but also in the ingrained passion behind the icon. Therefore, Addison Whitney’s initial goal in the early stages of the visual branding development process was to show a wide range of options that presented several opportunities for the new Insperity brand to have an ode to the previous logo at some level. Throughout a couple of rounds, one concept kept on rising to the top and seemed to be a perfect transition from the previous Administaff logo.
The new logo features a web/spark/compass icon that highlights the idea of alignment. The different segments signify how the company offers several business performance solutions for a wide range of companies. The design branches outward to show continued growth and confidence. The color palette was perceived as refreshing and eye-catching. To balance out the more modern colors is a stable, traditional typeface that has several curves that match that of the icon. Overall, the new identity lays a foundation for a fresh, energetic visual brand that truly matches the devotion and passion for prospering businesses and communities found within each Insperity employee.
