When it came to branding their organization, the Habayta team had a few significant goals. They were hoping to achieve:

Brand awareness
Brand affinity
Speaking engagements
Donor interest

First, we created several avatars based on the various personalities of Habayta's target consumers. We then explored what brand elements would appeal to them, including colors, fonts, wording, and imagery. Finally, we determined the parameters by which Habayta would measure success.

Habayta. Torah that takes you home.

Logo

We designed a logo that is made up of multiple shapes, each representing a different facet of the organization. The purple ball at the bottom of the logo leading up to the blue triangular stairs represents a person coming home.

We felt that the primary logo would be best used on mediums with plenty of room to breathe, unrestricted by space. It serves as the origin from which the rest of the logo variations stem.

Various versions of the Habayta logo.

Font‍

For the English text, we chose a font that conveys a fresh, youthful, and current energy. In contrast, the Hebrew font has a rough and classical display typeface, inspired by 1940s Yiddish newspapers, printed in movable type. The original Hebrew font is a narrow variation of square Ashkenazi fonts of the Drogo.

Using the Noto Sans font family enabled us alternating the weights, creating a more visually interesting typography. This technique can be used to emphasize words and phrases, as shown here.
