Hylo sports branding

London agency Otherway has designed the branding, which is intended to live between the worlds of sport and sustainability. It’s noticeably minimalist, sporting a sans serif logo and accompanying typeface, and a bolt-shaped motif that Otherway says represents the power of nature, as well as the speed and lightness of Hylo’s first shoe.

“We had conversations early on about colour or detailing, especially around branding,” Otherway founder Jono Holt. “To get that pop of colour we’d have to use an artificial dye. That extra piece of detailing needs a different supply chain. They ended up being stripped back because the design has to be simple for the supply chain to be simple, for the sustainability and responsibility of the product.”
