Branding a Sustainable Legacy with Wildwoods & Forestry

Creative Solutions

When Jenny and Ewan first reached out to us, they were clear about their vision: they wanted a brand that didn't just blend into the forestry industry but stood out as a beacon of sustainability and thoughtful forest management.

Wildwoods & Forestry, is a brand dedicated to sustainable forest management. Merging economic viability with environmental care, their brand represents a harmonious blend of nature’s heart delivering authenticity and a thoughtful approach to woodland preservation.

A Vision Rooted in Nature

This brand is where the raw, untamed beauty of forests meets a deep-rooted respect for nature. Jenny and Ewan wanted to capture their profound connection with the great outdoors and specifically the forests they cherish.

One of the focal points of Wildwoods & Forestry's visual identity is the thistle—a nod to their Scottish roots. Encased in an imperfect circle, it speaks volumes about the brand's philosophy: nature's inherent, beautiful asymmetry. This emblem is paired with typography that blends the traditional with the modern—serif for headlines and subheadings, and sans-serif for body text—to offer readability while evoking sophistication.

A Palette Inspired by Nature

Typically, forestry branding employs a gamut of earthy greens. But for Wildwoods & Forestry, we chose to take a different route. We included hues inspired by the Scottish thistle—a rich purple—to break the monotony. Alongside, we picked an array of greens and a soft yellow, dancing delicately between industry norms and the brand's unique identity.
