LOGOTYPES...

Your logo is a key element of your brand experience. A visual identity takes care of many more aspects so that your brand expresses itself in all your communication channels. Visualthings offers from a simple logotype design to a full visual identity system that ensure you always look your best.

  • Product Image 1

    SEG (real estate) | REBRANDING | IDENTITY |

    This company had a well established logo but not clear branding guidelines, which resulted in inconsistent communication. This is where Visualthings came to the rescue.

    SEG (real estate) | REBRANDING | IDENTITY |

    Just like a hat or a suit, a logo is only good if you know how to wear it. We defined clear guidelines on logo usage.

    SEG (real estate) | REBRANDING | IDENTITY |

    A part of my work consisted in defining a consistent usage of typefaces, colors and how to use them across their advertising material.

    SEG (real estate) | REBRANDING | IDENTITY |

    a modern graphic language (in tune with the company's positioning) allows a distinctive branding of images and offers flexibility and variation while remaining consistent.

    SEG (real estate) | REBRANDING | IDENTITY |

    The new identity allows the brand to be consistent across all its promotion, as seen here both in brochures as well as trade-show presence.

Brochures, infographics, album covers, packaging, vehicle branding, giant banners, web portals… is there anything I haven’t done? Visualthings has helped publishing companies, rock bands, art galleries and investment companies look good. No, they looked good already, I made them look GREAT!

KEY
VISUALS

PHOTO-ILLUSTRATION
MOTION GRAPHICS
VECTOR GRAPHICS...

Remember the Apple iPod campaign? the Apple was the logo. The colorful posters with silhouettes holding a white iPod? That’s a key visual. You know the Milka cow? Milka written in script is the logo. The purple cow is the key visual. A solid key visual can be created for a single campaign or it can accompany your brand over several campaigns. Visualthings knows how to create eye-catching key visuals that tell a story about your brand or product and that can easily adapt to all your needs, whether it is in motion-graphics, print, online banners or any other use.

WORKSHOPS...

Today's marketplace is highly visual and design-driven. There are high chances that the first contact your audience will have with your business is through visual content of any form (a shared post, an image seach result, an Instagram feed...). Companies who take design seriously and handle their visual presence right get the best part of the cake.

This is where I can help. I have trained graphic designers as part of a BA program of the Staffordshire University and ran "staying on-brand" workshops with sales and business development teams. I have helped a company increase its production threefold thaks to a more agile design process. Feel free to enquire.

WHO IS
VISUALTHINGS?


DESIGNER
ART DIRECTOR
VISUAL ARTIST




LAURENT BOMPARD








Over 20 years of international experience. I have gained my skills designing record covers for small labels before venturing into web design, editorial illustration, production design and corporate identity. I also do art direction for projects and teach to design students at the Werbe Akademie here in Vienna.

Visualthings operates as an open creative network. The visual design is mostly my work, but I can count on reliable and very professional photographers, copywriters, 3D designers and brand communication experts when a project requires more manpower . 

I have lived and worked in London, Barcelona, Budapest and now Vienna and have incorporated work habits and, most importantly, cultural sensibility from all these places into my own process.

Also, I have worked with and learned from very smart people, skilled people, some that were almost insane, difficult clients and adorable ones, used brand new technologies and computers that were held together with duct tape, prepared work in taxis, in airports and even in the back of a van rushing through England to meet a deadline.
I CAN DO IT!

I HAVE WORKED WITH THEM:


LexisNexis
Philips
Kalmar Lighting
Kulturnetz Pielachtal Rabenstein
Adobe Inc.
Von Walden
Strauss & Partner
SEG
