Troll is an identity of another world. Exploiting the power of the client name, a singular and figurative universe is created, with its own personality. A brand character.

Briefing
 
Create a unique brand with a matchless personality.
Nullify the negative nature the name could bear, boosting the captivating naming and mood.
Making explicit the size and scope of the services and expertise of TROLL Post-production.
 
Naming and Concept

TROLL as magical thinking. The client name is unusual, Felix Trolldenier. What seemed to him like a disadvantage, it seemed to us an added value, so we abbreviate the name and turn it into a brand. The signature contextualizes the name in their own world. Supernatural, reinforces what is beyond the limit, post-production as manipulation of the truth, beyond the perception of man. 
TROLL is a figure that inhabits our imagination. The idea is to recreate this figurative and symbolic scenario in an unusual and fun way.


 
 
 
Identity

TROLL the magical figure.
The identity is based on the Troll figure. We use typography as a figurative element and give
it personality and expression. A logo that is reactive, moody and charismatic.

TROLL an (e)motional figure.
How could we give life and articulated movement to a figurative logo?
That was the challenge that was carried a conceptual step forward. A brand character.
From the use of motion capture technology (used in films like Avatar, Lord of the Rings,
Tintin ...) it was possible to replicate actual movements and link them to the typography used
in the identity, approaching the performance of an actor to a character.

Motion capture is the process of recording movement and implement it in a digital model.
In studio and through a set of high-resolution infrared cameras, which react to a system
of markers that indicate submillimeter positions in real time, we recorded and and incorporated in the logo a series of actual behaviors, impossible to replicate in another way.

We created a series of graphic options that allow the construction of a character, an emotional figure, while simultaneously deconstructing the idea of ​​monster, making it fun, emotional
and real.
