Overview
Impro initially started as a coaching platform, but they soon found out that organizations would benefit from a more systemic approach. As a result, they created further offerings that would encompass mentoring and overall company consulting. Impro approached us to help them with their rebranding and web design since their value proposition did not entirely reflect the full range of their capabilities. We worked together to refresh their brand identity, website design, and other brand applications along their phygital touchpoints. Currently, we are working on the UX/UI design of their platform.
Concept & Strategy
In the initial branding workshop, we learned more about Impro, their overall company vision, and their brand values. We helped them transform their image from a regular coaching company to an integrated management consultancy. Impro is a hybrid between an AI-driven platform and a consulting company. Our concept, therefore, would be to combine both the human and the technological aspect of their product offering.
Logo
The logo represents Impro’s systemic methodology and the interconnection of coaching, mentoring, and consulting. The organic shape is designed to emphasize the uniqueness and infinite growth inherent in every individual. With human coaching on the one hand and AI-based technology on the other, Impro enables individual progress to fuel overall organizational growth.
Colors
As defined in the initial brand discovery phase, Impro’s positioning is a hybrid between an innovative, disruptive startup and an experienced consulting company. This positioning was also considered when defining the color palette. Smoky Black represents trust and confidence while vividly contrasting against light backgrounds, whereas purple represents innovation. They pair perfectly with the primary color and shall be used for highlights. Finally, the complementary colors help communicate Impro’s dynamic and bold character.
Typography
We use just one typeface, the sans serif typeface IBM Plex Sans. IBM Plex Sans was initially designed to illustrate the unique relationship between mankind and machine: a perfect summary of what Impro is all about. The neural, yet friendly Grotesque style typeface is used in different variations for headlines, call-to-actions and body copy with excellent legibility in print, web, and mobile interfaces.
Imagery
The branded patterns consist of various single and organic lines to represent each individual’s growth and, ultimately, the growth of the entire organization. They serve as the main decorative elements and are always boldly displayed in the background. The brand icons are the visual expression of Impro’s core values and tools. Simple and light yet sophisticated, they communicate the core idea and components of the brand. People are at the heart of what Impro does, which is why people and portrait photography are a fundamental aspect of Impro’s branding. Each person has their own ‘mission’ with endless room for personal and professional growth. Impro’s photography style conveys friendliness, authenticity, and inclusion. The color, composition and feel should engage viewers and make them feel represented and empowered.
Illustration
Impro connects technology with humanity. The products are represented through simplified illustrations combined with color portraits haloed by organic, custom-shaped circles. As a second set of illustrations, we created seven icons that would represent the different skills necessary for teamwork. From time management and attention to detail, to remote working and motivation, we created seven totally different layouts.
Web
To demonstrate how user-friendly and engaging the Impro platform is for every human, our team built various animated parts throughout Impro’s marketing website: simplified product illustrations, product dashboards, and the entire coaching process. Additionally, we designed UI kit components to relevant and corresponding sections of the digital project.

UX / UI
Impro is all about the amalgamation of AI and human knowledge. UX/UI design is all about the interaction between software and user. For Impro, it is crucial to convey their dynamic spirit on all platforms, so functional and innovative UX/UI design is a primary need for their brand identity. In order to meet their ongoing UX/UI design needs, we are currently working on the redesign of their old web application. Stay tuned to see the final results.
Communication
In order to explain Impro’s key benefits at the Collision conference, we created a video presentation and adapted all their marketing and sales collateral to the new brand look and feel.

"We love your enthusiasm, creative freedom and professionalism"

Everyone at Collision were very fascinated by your work. Choosing you as a partner is one of the best things we've ever done.
