Capt by Bunch, United Kingdom

Opinion by Richard Baird.

Brand Identity designed by Bunch for video making app and market platform Capt

Capt is a San Francisco-based start-up that connects creators wanting to monetize their videos with brands looking for new content and talent. The platform is made up of an app that allows creators to shoot, upload and license their videos, and a website that acts as a market place for buyers. This website also serves as a place to connect creatives with those who want to develop specific video content, as a tool to push assignments to qualified Capt creators by location and creator level, and provide access to and licenses for both global and hyperlocal video content.

This links folders, headed paper, business cards and branded hoodie, and runs across app and website.
