NSX – Logo refresh

Logo refresh using a more modern palette.

The National Stock Exchange of Australia is a Sydney based exchange founded in 1937. Now Australia’s second-largest exchange, the NSX lists companies valued below $50 million. In 2016 the NSX began an ambitious transformation program while repositioning its brand as a global stock exchange.

Colour

Primary palette includes financial blues but also warm tones and soft pastels. We used this colour combination to soften the corporate look. Which gives the brand flexibility to become more dynamic over time.

Typography

We created a clean, digital feel using Gotham as the primary typeface. Gotham references architectural signage of the mid-twentieth century in its letterforms. This as a subtle nod to the NSX’s beginnings in 1937.
