We were stoked when Israeli app Milkman approached us to rename, rebrand and launch their brand in the UK Market.

Our brief was to create an ownable brand name and visual identity that said ‘breakfast you want to jump out of bed for’, inspiring breakfast-loving busy bees with the joy of a hand-picked breakfast for all those times you wished borough market was on your doorstep.

step 1: name

The name ‘Milkman’ wouldn’t speak to a European audience in the same way as it did in Israel, where the the milk round was a think of novelty and not nostalgia.

The founders wanted a name that was ownable, a word that was completely new. So, we got thinking!

We tried various iterations of morning, and various ways of saying bread. We ate a ton of toast, thought about biblical names like ‘morning manna’ and finally, after about three hours of staring at a loaf of bread some time around 2am (the best time to brainstorm ideas), Loafly was born.

The team loved their new name, which combined the main product offering ‘loaf’ with ‘lovely’, the word makes you think of warm bread and round delicious breakfast things.

With the brand named, we set about creating a visual ID

Step 2: Design

We played around with warm shades: terracotta reds and mustardy yellows. A loaf-like beige was a favourite, and we added energy it up with morning tones. Typography was slimmed down for a premium artisan feel.

A smile, and sun rays decorate the ‘O’ bringing energy and warmth to create an ownable wordmark which can be used as a brand icon.

Launch

Loafly’s visual ID and new tone of voice was rolled our across social @loaflyuk, a sales-driven app-store description and their new website Loafly.co.uk. 

Creating a consisten look, feel and tone across all platforms helped build a a strong and effective communication.
