    Scope: Brand Identity, Communication, branding, strategy, logo design

    Brand Identity:

    The brand colours we used were based on the International standard Pantone Matching System (PMS).

    The logos had to be made fit for distinct business entities of “Caparo”

    The typeface we used is GOTHAM. We created patterns taking inspiration from “Maruti”. As they are India’s biggest car manufacturers. We created it with the idea of motion and mobility. Circles represent wheels which are our main graphics.

    We illustrated distinct patterns for distinct business entities of “Caparo.”

    For Creating these patterns, we took inspiration from different sources. Hence, we developed graphical patterns which are in sync with the industry where each brand operates while maintaining a single theme that ties them all back together as a member of the “CAPARO” family.

    We took inspiration from wheels symbolizing mobility for “CAPARO MARUTI LTD”.

    We took inspiration from bricks symbolizing the connection for “CAPARO ENGINEERING INDIA LTD.”

    We took inspiration from waves which reminded us of sinusoidal waves in which power or electricity flows for “CAPARO POWER LTD.”

    We took inspiration from steel symbolizing strength and preciousness, which again reminded us of diamonds for “CAPARO MI STEEL PROCESSING LTD.”

    We again took inspiration from bricks symbolizing the foundation for “CAPARO INDIA LTD.”

    We created a pattern symbolising the connection between people for “CAPARO PROCAM INFRASTRUCTURE LTD.”

    We took inspiration from a honeycomb symbolizing many entities working together for “CAPARO CORPORATE SERVICE.”

    We put our constant effort while working on this project. All throughout the process we were supported by the CAPARO team. We tried to bring out the significant character CAPARO GROUP plays in the development of economy. Our honest though process and strategic planning gave the desired creative results.
