HAYFIN - MOTION BRAND IDENTITY 

Winner of a 2020 Gold MUSE Creative Award.

Hayfin is one of Europe’s leading alternative asset management firms. Since they were founded in 2009 they have invested more than €19 billion in funds globally.

As Hayfin approached their tenth anniversary, we were asked to support them in their desire to create more video content for use at Investor Day events and pushed out on their website and social platforms.

Hayfin needed a strong, yet creative visual identity that would stand up to and elevate their already established presence. They had an identifiable logo and were keen to retain the equity built up with clients and within the industry.  Based on the agreed strategy, we developed a graphic property using the facets found in the existing wordmark. 


From this initial graphic property, we developed a full on-screen branding package including assets such as a master logo animation, name straps, image holding device, graphic transitions and animated type styling.

Once the branding elements were delivered in editable formats,  we created three videos celebrating the tenth anniversary and culture of Hayfin. We also devised a series of moving image content for upcoming conferences, including ambient screens, lift banners and a full video promoting ESG.

If you are interested in seeing the full video, we invite you to submit your details below.
