brand & graphic designer
UNICA Corp is a company located in São Paulo / Brazil that outsources facilities services such as cleaning, security, gardening, parking, building maintenance, and catering for over 120 clients nationwide.
The company had 3,000 employees and the initial goal was to double the size of the company and triple revenue in 4 years. The ultimate goal was to make it attractive enough for purchase or fusion by other larger companies, which was achieved after 10 years of restructuring and assertive work in all departments, including marketing which I was responsible for 6 years.
The original logotype was bland and had a futuristic typeface. It also did not resemble all the services provided by the company.
original logo from 2014
This was the first rebrand in 2016
I designed the new logo using 3 squared icon filled with flat colors to organize all the services into 3 main areas: facilities, security and food.
The new typeface resembles the original one but is steadier, provides a and provides better legibility.
The form is ultra-wide analog to horizontal hierarchy and also to the extend of services offered.
As brand manager, I created a new slogan that sells value. It reads “We work to delight.” This was a surprise to all employees and clients, and soon beagn to be part of everybody´s daily lives.

I also designed logotypes for the services offered for external and internal targets such as clients and employees.
And after a year all the company was already living the new mindset nurtured by the outlined new brand.
Innovation room was designed to collect new ideas from employees and clients
Interior design kept the branding guidance I designed
During this period of time, even with low investment in marketing and almost no team to give support, I managed to design more than a hundred different assets for specific clients and specific branches.
This included video content which you will find at the end of this page.
Nevertheless, I designed the brand-specific roles keeping the essence but flexing to cover fragile spots as long as the board of directors kept correcting the business direction.

After 3 years and with the guidance of a strategy consulting partner, the company found out that other services than security would not leave great profit margins, therefore, we had to re-design the company identity to position itself as a security outsourcing provider, yet, keeping the DNA that was already a success.

I designed the new logo following the client´s vision in a smart way to convey all the values the company, now, has to offer.
It features a much clearer service statement and is very flexible to fit a variety of situations.
The company gained a complete new arsenal of technology introduced in its Compliance, which became an indissoluble part of its brand.
For this, new communication assets were unfolded and designed in order to make the new brand noticed in the market. That included a whole new Social Media strategy and visual appeal, presentations, printed booklets, office interior design, stationary, virtual business cards, redesign for the entire vehicle, drones and electric bikes fleet as well as uniforms and a critical website update.

It would take more pages of content to present the many other materials that were designed over the 6 years that I was at the head of the company’s communication and marketing department, acting mainly as brand manager and advising on internal and external communication in all points of contact with target audiences.
Below you will find a compilation of video teasers, mostly operational training, which were used as promotional material without the traditional characteristics of advertising.
