Oblix’s New Identity

September 6, 2017

Identity

Here is the story of our new identity for Oblix: Discover the real world in virtual reality.

Oblix Virtual Reality Logo Thumbnails

Oblix’s new identity centers around our planet. The lines symbolize the longitude and latitude of the earth that sits on the letter ‘o’ at a 45° angle. The width of the letter ‘o’ acts as negative space that surrounds the globe indicating a portal (to enter Oblix’s world). The slanted globe depicts flexibility in movement, freedom in exploration.

Colors

Oblix Virtual Reality Colors

Oblix bridges reality and virtual reality. The colors blue and purple represent the real and virtual words, respectively, in one visual statement.

Typography

“The quality of the draughtsmanship – rather than the intellectual idea behind it – is my masterpiece. It was the hardest typeface I have worked on in my life. Working on it, I always had human nature in mind.”

Adrian Frutiger, designer of the Avenir typeface.

 

We carry forward the same typography used in our previous logo, Avenir, for three reasons, first the meaning of the word in French is “future“, second although the basis of the font is a circle, the letter ‘o’ is not a perfect circle but optically corrected, and third our adoration towards Frutiger’s vision and design approach on creating an organic version of geometric style sans-serif. A bolder weight is employed to illustrate presence in both the real and virtual worlds. We believe the future of human exploration will include discoveries within virtual reality.

Our new logo celebrates our purpose. It highlights Earth as our playground, and it is designed as an invitation to travel and explore the real world in virtual reality as well as to help build the world of Oblix.

With Oblix, VR functions as a tool that allows you to immerse yourself more deeply in reality, rather than escape it. Travel from Earth to Mars and to other planets.
