Business rebranding and a new name was much needed after this consortium had evolved far beyond an outdated identity

The challenge

It was a challenge and a welcome opportunity to create a new brand identity for the globally known and respected organisation DSDM. The brief was complex in that the DSDM shared the name of their consortium with that of a project delivery framework developed over 20 years ago; the Dynamic systems development method (DSDM).

The problem was twofold: It wasn’t a method that they soley used and owned; secondly, a method conceived over two decades ago, used then only as a software development method, has vastly evolved beyond that to encompass a ‘Framework for whole business change and agility’.

The outcome

We had a tight deadline to first create the brand and then find a way to boldly launch at the UK’s annual premier conference for professionals in this industry. The Brandspace team created a bold and striking brand that spoke itself the principles of Agile business practice – that of journey, energy and breakthrough. At the event, the logo was revealed in a cinematic identity animation. Once the big reveal over, we ensured all supporting brand materials were in place – with all the rules and guidance to move forward and build on the new brand.

Our challenge, to bury a bygone brand and boldly begin anew!

AGILE are educators; their material can be complex, formalistic but to be frank, in extended written form can appear dull. The truth is different. AGILE ideas are inspiring, simply efficient and their approach is gratifying fun – the antithesis of the negative connotations of ‘corporate’ (the audience to whom they speak). We created a brand that remedies that.
