ICAP is a global financial markets operator – was in the process of selling its voice broking business to its main competitor. 


ICAP required a new name and visual identity as the ICAP brand would transfer with the sale.

The remainder of the business would become a global financial markets operator focusing on financial technology.
The new name we chose was NEX.

An elegant graphic world based on the curves of the logo that support the brand attributes of being fast, agile and innovative whilst being lean, efficient and growing.
