Heras is marktleider in buitenbeveiliging. Het bedrijf introduceerde tijdens de Internationale BouwBeurs 2011 een absolute Rule Breaker: de iGate. De iGate is een vrijdragende schuifpoort, door ons team op een revolutionaire manier vormgegeven.

The process

To let the gate fit with the company Heras, the brand identity was closely looked at. This resulted in a couple of key words. Such as reliable, intelligent, stylish, in the lead… Together with complementing images a moodboard was created to give further meaning to these key words.

Now that the brand identity was clear, the next step was to develop the design language for the iGate. In the same way as the brand identity another moodboard was created. Timeless, geometric, approachable, neat and corporate were some of the key words used to define the design language.

The i-Gate turns an otherwise common gate into an attractive business card. We have finally created a gate that does not deter a visitor but welcomes him instead ! This can be realised with a message of choice….. design your own gate ! .
