ThinkMarble is one of the premiere Cyber Security companies based in the South. They help keep secure all manner of businesses and get them aligned with current security standards, and prepared for the future. The website/branding had a completion deadline of just over a month due to an upcoming security initiative setup by the UK government.
The had an initial logo that has a lot of potential, but that I felt needed just a touch of simplification and clarity. I removed much of the visual clutter, brought out the spherical nature of the ‘marble’ and added the split colouring of the name. You can see the difference below:
With the branding established, we decided upon a punchy, bold design that broke away from the staid style of security sites that were around at the time. They also wanted something that made the site seem ‘alive’. I decided to write some custom code that displayed an ever-updating stream of ‘hacks’. This showed current timestamps, randomly generated possible IP addresses, common attackers and potential victims (with an onus on their clientele locations).
The site is fully responsive and uses the latest web security technologies to ensure it’s safety. Alongside the website, I created their responsive email footer that is deployed by Office 360. This dynamically generates the correct details for each signature based on the employee details already on their systems.
For future design work, I designed a custom font for ThinkMarble called ‘GothSerrat’. This combined elements of Montserrat and Gotham with adjustments to break up some of the ligature connections in line with the logo.
