Building a community-driven brand and digital product from the ground up.
Web Design & Development
Procally is a Toronto based startup that was focused on building a digital product to create a community to connect local businesses with trade workers.
Create a community through business.
There were many challenges in this extensive engagement, ranging from how to create a brand that felt holistic and communal, to designing an intuitive and friendly digital product that fostered community, connection and trust.
Bring in the warmth.
We knew we needed an incredibly “human” brand and feel for this company. People first was always our approach, simple and friendly. This found it’s way into the brandmark, the logo, the colour and font choices to the actual product itself.
Finding the right accent to Procally.
With the end goal of this product being a native app, we wanted to build out a simple and cute logo that would look good on your phone’s homescreen. This combination of a P and L, along with a friendly round font makes it instantly recognizable at any size.

Once settled on a logomark and typeface, we needed to flesh out an entire brand system that would provide cohesiveness between the digital product and all of their eventual print assets. We built a colour and font identity system that was then explained in a comprehensive Brand Guideline so that Procally could properly integrate their brand on any asset they see fit.
Mobile first approach.
Knowing most of it’s platform’s usage would come from mobile devices, we designed Procally’s MVP with a mobile first approach, incorporating stunning UI components that were insanely easy to navigate.
Tailored dashboards for businesses.
The Pro Dashboard we designed for Procally was intended to be so easy, even the busiest of professionals could check their profiles without needing to go through complex navigation barriers.
