Brand Concept

Creating the largest scholarship in Africa is a complex task that requires great effort. As a team, we find it fulfilling to work with clients who have meaningful missions. Our approach involves gaining a deep understanding of our audience’s characteristics and motivations, which enables us to design digital experiences that resonate with them. We created a symbol for the scholarship that is clear, informative, and energizing. The underlying message is that this scholarship has the potential to positively impact the lives of its beneficiaries. We believe in this message, and it is essential for applicants to know what they are getting.

To maintain brand consistency and stand out among other initiatives, we sketched a T symbol with an X for ALX, matching the partner’s brand archetype. We made sure to incorporate the unique selling points and emotional motivators into our messaging, keeping the descriptions of clarity, informativeness, and energy in mind. We achieved this by using cultural insights, strategic vision, and the power of emotion across every aspect of the ALX-T brand.
