This project was completed during my tenure at NH1 Design, as a part of studio's design team. Please visit www.nh1design.com for details.
So what does it do? It makes you see! numberz.in makes you see your numbers so clearly that it gets easy to understand it, easier to analyse it and easiest to take action when your immediate needs show up in a flash. In simpler words, numberz offers a simple way to first recognise the cash-flow gaps clearly and then fix those gaps by advancing payments against your unpaid invoices.
The brief for the logo design was to clearly communicate that numberz had to do with money. Our challenge was to communicate words as digits. So we found a way to communicate both in a single expression.
The communication strategy was two pronged. The first was a route that communicates the fatigue of excel sheets by giving it the outdated tag, and giving numberz the tag of being the new iMac of accounting.
The second route was to associate the very idea of cashflow management with all the most fatigue inducing tasks in life, things that make you procrastinate. Things you're not very happy about doing. In both routes the ideas were to connect with the feeling of our consumers when they sit down to do their accounting, then enhance them and finally offer the solution.
We developed an icon system with unique graphic style that would differentiate numberz from other platforms. Icons consist of Line art with off-set muted registration colours in the background. For the User Interface, we created icons that are responsive and thus have a half-pixel height variation as well.
