Make the move.

Somfy is at the heart of smart homes and buildings, providing an ecosystem of products and connected services, to make life easier, safer, and cosier for all. As a pioneer and premium leader in motorization and automation, the brand wanted its visual identity to reflect its unique mindset: a daily companion that is mindful of nature whilst keeping people at the heart of its business, endlessly moving to create spaces that are both multifunctional and uplifting. Somfy needed to better address their B2B partners by having a dedicated visual identity, consistent with the B2C one. FutureBrand Paris came up with a specific methodology: after a first series of interviews, teams got organised into different work streams, allowing Somfy’s stakeholders to co-create the best design solutions.

Somfy’s new identity reflects the positive and durable motion they create. Capitalising on its strong equity, we took the iconic “O” of the logotype, symbolising the motor’s head, and created a dynamic shape from it: the Move. A strong visual symbol that can be endlessly expanded and played with, consistent throughout all applications. We created a distinctive iconography style for B2C & B2B using soft shadows and lively atmospheres that turn into whiter lights and accentuated contrast when addressing professionals. The tailor-made working methodology generated a high-engagement level – on top of brilliant ideas. It enabled us to create a flexible system aligned with the new brand positioning and consistency, obtaining a real differentiation between B2C and B2B segments.

Tap the circle to enable Accessibility Mode

Accessibility mode:

Making a website accessible is crucial to provide equal access and equal opportunities to people with diverse abilities. In today's digital age, the web has become an essential resource in various aspects of life, such as education, employment, commerce, healthcare, and recreation. By designing and developing websites that are accessible to people with disabilities, we create a more inclusive online environment.

When activated, accessibility mode will enable certain features, including pausing auto-played video content, increasing contrast, and updating the site navigation bar for easier visibility.
