Refreshing and rebranding an API platform for confidence and credibility.
About the project
For the past several years, Hedgeable, a robo-advisor, has been servicing thousands of customers in tactical investing through a combination of automation and customization. In 2017, the team discovered that they could offer more value by switching their focus to B2B and helping banks modernize their investing services. Thus, Hedgeable became Hydrogen, an API platform.
As designer on a small team, I worked on elements of product and brand.
I persuaded the only other designer to help me lead the CEO into participating in a branding sprint I learned about (https://library.gv.com/the-three-hour-brand-sprint-3ccabf4b768a); we had to shorten it to fit his busy schedule, but it was a success in understanding what the product’s strengths, concerns, and goals are. Then we sent out an internal Google survey to the team to get a sense of the current sentiments of the product to craft a stronger brand.
