Pure Storage Logo and Identity Design Overview

UPDATE: The Pure Storage _c5271a40_ Applied – Photos of the branded FlashArrays now up.

This is just a quick peek at a final _c5271a40_ design for a new computer storage start-up, making enterprise arrays. My usual in-depth _c5271a40_ process post will come shortly.

The conceded that the ‘Pure’ portion of the name posed some challenges given the prolific nature of the name in pretty much everything and anything. Pure this, Pure that, so the challenge was to not fall into something so predictable as a rain drop, or water or anything else that has been used a million times before.

Crucially, the _c5271a40_ needed to stand out against many well known brands in their market.

This project saw the most amount of sketches and ideas I have yet done for a project, and thought I would never come up with something appropriate. Then one morning I was making some breakfast and pulled out a tub of honey, which has pure on it.

Then the bells started ringing. From this I went to bees, then to hives, then to hexagon, then to speed and agility, to organisation, to intelligence, to workers to ‘hive mind’ and pretty much every thing to with bees could be attributed to this company.

The idea spawned some sketches on bees etc, then I focused on the hives. The Hexagon shape ‘P’ was the end result. The initial ‘P’ formed from a pure honey hive. Elation.

was ecstatic with the mark as well as having a solid meaning to it. We both got our simple, clean and bold mark. I have a list of over 50 direct and non direct competitors and this stands well on it’s own as a design, which was the ultimate aim for a new start-up, to give them a fighting chance at being noticed.
