We began our strategy development through sector immersion where we carried out desk research, discovery sessions, competitor reviews and guided client workshops. Developing our work using tried-and-tested marketing frameworks for success, we distilled the core value proposition and were able to put in place a clear brand structure, including the message house, tone of voice and brand archetype.

Our initial brand strategy then informed the creative process for the new visual identity, designed with the key fundamentals of Sprout's new brand in mind; accessibility, trustworthiness, and freshness. 

Conveying a thoughtful balance between the intelligence of the mind and the emotion of the heart, the lower case in the logotype denotes accessibility; the usage of green in the colour palette is associated with growth; and the particular shade of forest green serves as a nod to the reputability of the VC managers Sprout works with.

  • Desk research/competitor review

  • Guided creative workshops
