“Working with Red&Grey is always a pleasure. They are one of the most professional teams I have worked with. They combine strategic and profound thinking with the power of design. They see things from a holistic point of view and are able to capture this in simplistic yet powerful designs and brand identities. What is most telling about them, is that they really worked with me in redefining our company’s new brand strategy.”
Rutger Bonsel, Stamicarbon

Hummingbird







Hummingbird invests in exceptional entrepreneurs.

Challenge
They help start-ups scale from zero to category-defining multi-billion dollar businesses across 3 continents. Based in London and Antwerp, they are early-stage seed investors in exciting global projects. They have successfully transformed companies such as Deliveroo, Showpad and Gram Games. They required a rebrand to help them to attract the next generation of brilliant entrepreneurs and exceptional founders.

Approach
We worked together with Hummingbird’s team to discover their brand essence. They value emotional intelligence as much as data, growing internal culture as much as growing revenue, and forming strong, personal bonds with founders. They are adventurous, persistent and curious.

We developed their new branding to give the organisation a more contemporary, innovative and professional feel. Inspired by nature, the brand identity is based around the speed and agility of the hummingbird. We used abstract shapes such as triangles to represent birds and circles to symbolise nectar.

To bring this dynamic brand identity to life, we worked with animator, Alex Dobbin, to create motion graphics for the website home page. Photographer, Matthew Thompson, also took portraits each team member at Hummingbird’s London office. We designed their website which features custom photography, vector illustrations and motion graphics. The website also features an investor portal so users can view the latest and best new ideas from around the world. The site can be viewed at www.hummingbird.vc.

Services
Branding, design for online, website, animation.

Value
Hummingbird is now in the top 100 early-stage venture capital investors in Europe in 2020. Hummingbird Ventures focuses on building the tech companies of tomorrow by empowering exceptional entrepreneurs with swift access to essential advice, radical candour, funding and organizational design expertise. 80% of their investments have gone to early-stage companies.
