"Mekanika has one idea in mind: facilitate local communities' access to manufacturing processes, through open-source tools and quality educational content."
As a young and devoted company, Mekanika is seeking the right visual translation of their values. Based on this, our first mission in 2018 was dedicated to their graphic identity. On a day to day collaboration, we conceived and determined the visual translation of their values. Mekanika

The logo is the graphic mark used to aid and promote public identification and recognition. For Mekanika, we designed a logo in balance with their products and their audience.
The clear space around the logo is defined by the thickness of its M. To maintain its visual significance and ensure readability, the logo's width must never be smaller than 35 mm or 132 Pixel (including clear space).
The mark allows the use of the mark whenever there is not enough space available for the full logo to represent Mekanika. It is meant to be used in any circumstances, such as marking Mekanika products or documents.

The thickness of the M point defines the clear space around the signet. For readability reasons, the signet should never be smaller than 20 mm or 75 px.
Through typography, a company's personality and values are conveyed. Mekanika chooses two clear and no serif fonts. The second one, Arial Rounded, was used and modified to create the logotype.
A color palette provides depth to brand. Within a brand guidelines, the purpose and the use of the colors should be described.
A colour palette should explain how the colours reflect the brand's personality and what kind of consumers they want to attract. Mekanika chooses a vibrant and greyish blue to emphasize its technological aspect.
In order to ensure consistency on different media, the signet has been designed to be machined with classic CNC machine endmills by keeping a constant thickness and avoiding sharp edges.
