PROJECT SUMMARY      |      CHALLENGE     |      STRATEGY      |     RESULTS      |


With the advent of Industry 4.0, the application of artificial intelligence is becoming a trend. HIWIN, the largest manufacturer of precision linear motion control products in Taiwan, started its development many years ago; however, as the product technology became mature, its brand image was not satisfactory any longer. For a decade, it hasn't updated its brand image, which couldn't reflect the brand positioning of HIWIN anymore. Therefore, VOCUIS was commissioned by Taiwan Design Center to assist HIWIN in reshaping its brand.

We build unique brand identities and imagery creating extraordinary brand experiences.

Rebuild the brand with a modern design based on its original core value

For a decade, HIWIN has been facing the rapidly changing times of Industry 4.0. Mechanics become more humanized and intelligent, instead of a cold presence of technology; therefore, manufacturers of professional precision drive parts must adapt their brand positions to the environment in order to keep the brand active in the market.Nevertheless, HIWIN never changed its core value that is people oriented. Therefore, the design goal of brand activation is to deliver the value of humanity in a clearer way, based on which, the VOCUIS design team re-interpreted HIWIN with modern design terms. VOCUIS introduced more human-oriented changes into the identity totem and applied flat design to enable the totem to be understood and read in a diversified way by modern people. The brand identity is also redesigned in a way that can well reflect the people-oriented core value.

Holistic and consistent design image spirit

VOCUIS' brand designers used the new brand identity system to design application touching points for the brand, from the easy-to-read manual catalog and official website with a focus on experience design to other office supplies management systems. The updated brand image is totally different.
HIWIN, as a pioneer in Taiwan's precision industry, has fully understood that all products are based what people want them to be, so is branding and design. All designs are the result of researches on users' habits, and closely connected with user experience. A good brand recognition and memory could be built among international customers only by discarding the designs that couldn't fully communicate the brand culture, and activating the brand for the current trend.
