Offering much more than a static corporate identity, this creative toolset represents a strategy of customization and flexibility for an ambitious printery. While preserving a recognizable appearance for several Pigmentpol subsidiaries, the Hexagon – like its inspiration, the circle in color theory – allows for limitless variation and delicate gradation.

From the hexagon as a key visual element, any number of generated logos and backgrounds can be derived. All products or services – from stationery to shop interiors and vehicles – acquire a personalized aesthetic.

The generative design app follows a certain rule set and color scheme while granting control and choice to the designers working within its general framework.
