Creating Swingvy’s Key Visuals (2)— “Relationshape”
When you browse through the Swingvy website, you can see tons of circles, squares, rectangles, and many other geometric shapes. We’d like to share why we use these geometric shapes in our brand design and trace back to how these visuals have evolved.
The truth is, those shapes came from the brand name “Swingvy” itself
As mentioned in our “Brand Refresh” blog, our brand name, “Swingvy” comes from “Swing” + “by”. In aerospace engineering, swing-by, or gravity assist, leverages the gravity of a planet to get an extra boost to change the course or speed of a spacecraft.
Why we named our brand “Swingvy” was simply inspired by how this gravity assist works. Like how a spacecraft uses “Swing-by” to accelerate themselves, we want to be a “Swing-by” for our customers to “help SMEs to create empowering workplaces for their teams”.
We wanted to show the mission not only in the name but also in the visual brand identity so that people can understand our philosophy through both verbal and visual communications.
And that’s how “Swing-by” became our graphic motif
Transformed to a simplified shape
To make the shape more simple and adaptable, we have used two circles and one line as the basic form of the graphic pattern. Various combinations are made based on this.
We call it “Relationshape”
Now you’ll get that these shapes are more than just a combination of circles and lines. It is a shape with a story that connects to the meaning of “Swingvy”. So we are calling it “Relationshape”.
Swingvy Relationshape is transformed as diverse visual designs across the website and other platforms.
We use Relationshapes to build dynamic layouts

And the more advanced version is… Swingvy “Core values”
Born out of “Swingvy” itself, our “Relationshape” has become the core visual asset of Swingvy’s Visual Identity. We hope that this article helps you understand the story of how the key visual elements have evolved and relate to our mission, “Help SMEs to create empowering workplaces for their teams”, better than before.
