Creating a Brand that Instils Trust in Consumers
Through the combination of a slightly tilted logotype to represent motion, and the fundamental of science (atom) as a symbol, our team crafted a unique identity for Morph Performance. The identity translates the very idea of the brand itself—sports and science, while serving as a dual functional logotype and logo mark when deployed in different situation.
Morph Performance is also branded with visual elements such as the champion stripes in MP’s brand colour. This element can be found on collateral and jerseys as a constant reminder of the athleticism of the brand.

Guarding the Brand to Ensure Brand Consistency
Every aspect of the Morph Performance brand is guarded by the 45-page brand guideline that our team developed for the client. Inside the guideline, client (or, future designers) will have an in-depth and thorough understanding of the brand assets, and how to visually portray the brand in the best light.
This includes brand values, brand personality, brand tone, logo usage, graphic device, colour palette, typography, iconography, photography style, etc. Once a branding project is completed, our team is usually tasked with the scope of a brand guardian to ensure that the integrity of the brand remains intact for as long as it lives.

Funnelling Leads through Web Conversion Form
Morph Performance brand architect is departmentalised into 3 main categories (Catalyst, Laboratory, and Reactor) for clarity, purpose, and lastly, to ensure that the categories do not cross over one another.
This is translated equally well on the website, where potential customers can be informed and understand the purpose of the brand. The flow of the website is also intentionally crafted to easily facilitate potential customers in the registration of their interest in the product through a simple web form where the client would be notified.
