VGN (Dutch National Disability Care)

Client
VGN (Dutch National Disability Care).

People with disabilities want to live a fulfilling life. Dutch National Disability Care (VGN) is devoted to support this cause in every possible way. VGN actively supports disability care organisations in the Netherlands and is on the forefront of making innovations and technologies available to the public.

Assignment
VGN approached Studio Piraat for a revision of their brand identity to better match the core of the organisation: help those with disabilities live a life they want.

Solution
We used the outcomes of an interactive brand session to work towards a sensible and clear visual identity. The words ‘kindness’ and ‘accessibility’ describe the services of VGN best and they became central to the new identity. We reworked the logo with a friendly lowercase font that features rounded corners and a familiar yet fresh colour palette.

Result
The new logo reflects VGN very well. It’s strong in its nuances; the soft new typography and the modified colours are a powerful visual translation of VGN’s core services. The familiarity of the logo is not lost, so VGN can easily apply it to all their communication channels.

‘Working with Studio Piraat was great! Our new visual identity is developed and designed by a tremendously skillful, talented team of brand specialists. Studio Piraat was able to subtly transform our visual identity into a fresh, friendly and familiar design. We’re thrilled with the result and the collaboration.’

Royal Van Zanten

Client
Royal Van Zanten is an innovative family-run company that operates successfully in international floriculture. They do this by continuously improving genetics, by synergies in plant-breeding, multiplication and cultivation technologies, and by intensive cooperation with partners within the supply chain.

Brief
Royal van Zanten asked Studio Piraat to restyle the visual identity for international use, both online and offline.

Solution
A brand new logo featuring a complete visual identity. In addition to new colours, gradients, and typography, a dynamic grid was added to the corporate style. Due to the many expressions for Royal Van Zanten such as trade shows, catalogues, brochures, trucks, and signing, this grid provides a strong base and an infinite number of possibilities in the layout.

Result
A strong international brand, with a modern and uniform look. Every online and offline expression is designed with eye for detail and is immediately recognisable. Check out the updated website here.
