Our Specialty lies in recruiters with similar backgrounds who excel at identifying the right talent.


During the visual exploration phase, taking into account the client's preferences, the primary target audience for Nace Partners is founders and hiring teams. Their unique selling point in the industry lies in their team of recruiters who share similar backgrounds, enabling them to effectively convey clients' stories and attract personnel who align with their distinct profiles.

02 Brand Identities

Dynamic and Playful building blocks

Visual Direction

Based on Nace Partners' brand keywords of "transparent, human first, concierge-like white glove," we have formulated three distinct brand directions: "concierge, curated, and confident."


03 Website Design

"The website will serve as the cornerstone of our brand foundation as we expand our marketing efforts."

Visual Treatment

Confident and bold
We've employed a bolder sans-serif font to enhance the concierge service, and we're extending these building blocks to craft Nace Partner's brand voice.

Logo Iteration

We love the playfulness, but memorized is a key
We initially appreciated the playful logo design for Nace Partners, featuring dynamic building blocks that transformed upon entering their website. However, we recognized that this approach might diminish their brand impression, so we decided to revert to one static logo.
