The Chain Reaction Project is a not-for-profit organisation founded in 2009 to aid developing countries through global community intervention. The organisation’s identity, developed by Singapore based independent design studio Bravo, takes a three pointed star as the basis for a larger network of assets that resolve the philosophies and the broad range of causes it aims to tackle.

The converging three stroke foundation of this identity is incredibly restrained and confidently draws on the association and similarity it has with the Red Cross but with the accessible qualities you expect to get from rounded terminals and similar sans-serif typeface. This softer quality is reinforced by a broad series of proprietary assets that expand on the mark and blend the playful with the technological undertones of a light and consistent line weight.

The logo-mark, combined and repeated, characterises a broader network through a hexagonal form that appropriately references hives, communities and the chain reaction one individual can ignite. A perforated business card makes this idea a memorable physical gesture that is complemented by hand written details on the reverse, an action that makes the owner individually responsible for their part of a bigger initiative. This sense of functionality is carried through a two ink ’emergency’ red and black colour palette that, executed across the collaterals, survival products and an uncoated unbleached substrate appears to have an underlying utilitarian aesthetic.

The rigidity and geometry of the identity makes the brand appear stable and reliable, ideal for a charitable organisation, and although it perhaps lacks energy or spontaneity the solution takes a very simple form and gives it an expansive and engaging quality.

Support BP&O



Thank you to everyone who has visited BP&O since its beginning in 2011. As many of you know, BP&O has always been a free-to-access design blog that seeks to offer extended opinion on brand identity work. It has sought to be the antithesis of the social media platform that often disentangles form, context and content. Writing articles can take 2-4hrs and are carefully researched.

I am passionate about design writing and believe that spending time to write about work, rather than just posting images, furthers design discourse. If you have enjoyed this article, have been with the site from its early days and would like to help contribute to its future, please consider supporting the site with a small PayPal donation. This will go towards the costs of hosting, CDN (to make the site quick to load) and Mailchimp, and cover some of the time it takes to research, write-up, format and share posts.
