The ambitious Director at the established Touchstone Recruitment firm approached GDWorks to redevelop the brand, moving away from the ‘old’ and repositioning herself as a sole agent in an ever-evolving and fast-paced recruitment industry. It was important to instill the work ethic of Touchstone – transparent, collaborative, friendly, forward-thinking, and supportive. The San serif wordmark and typography treatment are crisp and bold, conveying a feeling of ease and simplicity. The monogram graphic, which fits nicely within TOUCHSTONE, portrays 2 persons interacting with one another, the different height relates to the diversity of clients and people they work with.

The geometric structure stands out for all communication types and brings a ‘smile’ to the face. The letter U design allows creative freedom, I also see it as a symbolising the meaning of ‘i’ being the recruiter ‘Pauline’ & ‘U’ the client, working together, which is measured and recognised – touchstone.

Our campaign ‘Being happy outside work – is being happy inside work’. was used across several platforms. The billboard concept shows a range of people ‘outside of work’, showing their true personalities, in plain clothes, enjoying life, as opposed to the saturated images of desktops, suits, and city buildings.
