brand illustration shows three people drawing otherwisz logo in space

As the saying goes, “A picture is worth 1000 words.” For as long as design has existed, illustration has proved an excellent tool for conveying the meaning of supporting text. Not only do illustrations capture the attention of your viewers, but they also increase the retention of information and enable an easier understanding of written instructions or abstract/complex ideas. Sometimes illustrations are imaginative and playful, but often they are used as flexible assets to our design work, which can be adapted into a number of styles to communicate the value of your brand, products, and services to your customers.

Brand Identity of the TXTRWall Logo designed by OtherWisz Creative superimposed on top of Rigidized's 6WL pattern

In an effort to reach a new target audience, Rigidized Metals was looking to reposition their textured metal panels for interior applications with a new brand identity. Rigidized asked OtherWisz to come up with a name that would stand alone and appeal specifically to the interior market. Since interior products are used for different purposes than the exterior and industrial applications, it was determined that the mood of the new brand would be focused differently in order to stress the aesthetic appeal of the product line. With that in mind, we were looking to create a brand for their interior wall panels that is modern and complimentary to Rigidized’s other products: RigiGrip®, Contrarian Micro Textures, Vipertex®, etc.
