According to the dress code, it’s easy to understand the roles, company’s goals and being comfortable in the interaction between the different departments and percept the priority in the all of the work process situations. In the way of visual coding, to coordinate the team work and stabilised office environment is much easier than without identity.

Case. After interviewing the client

ReD. Brand Design is my brand development practice. The seven people are the main associates of our practice. The office environment though was not built for ReD. Brand Design but for Creative Xchange with the “blue prints” as the main inspiration for the concept of CreativeXchange is the approach for our new company that me and my partner who’s an architect are forming to offer collaborative services of architecture and brand design development in combination for stronger brands entering the market”.

The colours what will be used in the identity: blue, gray, black, red, white, sand colors. This combination isn’t annoying. The pattern elements are: vertical and horizontal lines. The work environment has to be clear, aligned, bright, air-spaced. Employees have to have a freedom in their clothing choice and feeling comfortable. Clothes influence on the social behaviour and effectiveness according to the work goals. Individually making the set of the possible costumes for the office, the right choice for being productive at work. The chosen brand for making the office look is Mango.

Costumes are applicable for the public and client oriented positions, like founder (creative designer), designer, customer development manager, architect. They work in the front office, when designer has a manager, this position can be moved to the back office.

T-shirts, jeans, easy pants, trainers and sneakers are applicable for the back office, web developers. It doesn’t mean that front office cannot wear this type of clothes, for the official vents and meeting people, they have to wear a strong style for representing their company.
