Background

A hub for resources, education, and networking in the leather industry, promoting a chromium-free supply chain.

Description

Objective

To create a timeless, approachable identity for CFLA that emphasises their mission to promote a chromium-free leather supply chain.

Approach

We conducted extensive research to craft an identity that embodies trust and champions leather education and circularity. The logo design combined natural elements (leaves, water, soil) with the universal leather symbol to represent a safe, environmentally friendly future. We chose green as the primary colour to reflect the Alliance's circular goals and used Sofia Pro, a geometric typeface, for its warmth and readability.

The visual identity was designed to be adaptable across various mediums, including print, website, and social media, ensuring consistency. Practical considerations, such as symbol size and word-mark legibility, were factored in to ensure the logo's effectiveness on product hang tags and in multiple languages.

Result

The new identity for CFLA is approachable and aspirational, positioning the Alliance as a leader in promoting a chromium-free future in the leather industry.
