The East African Community is an intergovernmental organization composed of six countries in the African Great Lakes region in eastern Africa: Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda. The key pain points of the brand architecture was a lack of consistency in the online and offline visual language between organs and institutions. There was also an inability to adapt to the changing and evolving nature of the organization.
Our approach to the challenge presented by the brief was to create an Identity system that would communicate the EAC’s common purpose by connecting the cultural diversity of the member states, the enormous wealth pooled together by the nations and the beauty of the East Africa region that has made us the envy of the world. This connected identity would have the ability and capacity to stretch across all EAC platforms, organs and channels.
