Active Citizen is a system of electronic voting used by residents of Moscow to solve the city’s current issues, for example to determine the look of a new Metro station, to decide on improvements in a hospital or choose new clubs in a school.
The service’s identity was updated at the studio, while the original concept and recognizable elements were kept intact.
The task was to improve the service’s appearance without introducing many changes (the users have become used to the old style). All elements of the style were carefully and lovingly updated.
The recognizable logo received more active and dynamic shapes, while the confident text enhances the feeling of moving forward.
The traditional star made of letters A has become whole and complete: the diagonal slants bring the elements together to form a coherent composition.
The refreshed logo was used to create a signature character: the Supercitizen. He is unmistakably associated with the new logo and helps people feel like superheroes ruthlessly defeating city problems.
The logo’s active diagonals are maintained in the identity and are used in the design of billboards, booklets and posters.
Users of the system receive notifications about upcoming polls and recent news. All notifications were updated with a conspicuous and comfortable design.
Each letter includes the Supercitizen symbol, reminding that the appearance of Moscow hospitals won’t choose itself and the yard near your house will have another parking lot, not a nice lawn, if you don’t vote in time.
To involve and inspire users and create the exciting atmosphere of a game, Active Citizen awards souvenirs to its most active members.
The souvenirs are decorated with the logo, the Supercitizen symbol and signature patterns. Wearing them is honorable and delightful.
The website offers to choose the color of each souvenir and allows to find out which one turned out to be the most popular.
The style of the souvenirs will be based on the choice of the majority!
Rules for the use of the signature elements, colors and typefaces are presented in the style guide.
By the way, Active Citizen turns 4 on May 26, 2018 and there will be a great celebration in Gorky Park.
There will be well-known musicians, sports competitions, contests and other interesting events. And of course you’ll be able to see our beautiful new identity literally on every corner.
