Jaime from Mexico needed a name and a corporate identity for a tennis sports clothing brand for children and young people.
He explained in details about the philosophy of his new company and told us that he needed something that was clearly associated with the tennis sector and which also attracts children and teenagers.
From Jaime's indications we presented 25 name proposals, all with an available domain ".com", to guarantee its exclusivity and permit the option of expanding the company without any limitations through the internet.

Client response: Jaime replied that his favorite was number 21: VIVOLEA. From here we proceeded to the logo designing stage followed by the identity corporate manual of the brand.
The chosen logo design integrates the isotype in the name, using the shape of the "V" to describe the silhouette of a bouncing tennis ball ("volea"/ volley). Its font is dynamic and unique due to its special geometry and its rounded edges.
The combination of blue and green transmits joy and youthfulness. The lime green is a color that is very common and bound to the tennis world.
