The existing brand
Fair Trade Hong Kong approached us to update their appearance, to modernise and become relevant to Hong Kong’s current social climate. In the age of dynamic brand engagement, Fair Trade needed to stay relevant within both environmental and social spheres.

Illustrating Fair Trade’s methodology
We first worked with the Fair Trade board of directors to deconstruct the organisation to find their fundamental mission statements. We created icons for each of their four mission statements.
To promote equality & fairness
To foster positive commerce
To stay true to traditional community values
To encourage networking & community
Creating a simple, flexible icon
The four mission statement icons were developed into one visually balanced logomark. The four interwoven bands represent the organisation’s four mission statements. The four singular squares represent their extending reach and network.
