About the project

Qt is a popular cross-platform framework for building software and graphic user interfaces.  Qt provides developers advanced and effective tools for creating intuitive applications and devices. The Qt Company is responsible for Qt’s development.

The Qt Company’s technology solutions have deservedly reached tremendous success all around the world. However, they have many large, well known and international competitors. Standing out from this tough crowd calls for world-class design. The company wanted to create a recognizable, fresh and clear visual appearance that won’t be overshadowed by their competitors.      

Bitfactor’s professionals created a fresh color palette and icons for Qt’s solutions that make them approachable and recognizable. The new visual appearance joins Qt’s extensive product family together and helps the company claim their position as a well known international enterprise.

Clear core

We kickstarted the project with a workshop with the intention of clarifying Qt’s desired message for their brand and visual appearance. This helped us map out the brand’s essence and form a basis for the whole project.

Style and usability with design

Style and usability with design

The full spectrum of Qt’s digital tools is extensive, so we wanted to clarify their offering using design. We divided their solutions into three main categories: Qt creator, Qt Design Studio and Qt 3D Studio. We then designed icons and signature colours for each of the categories.

The other applications were divided under the main categories and given their own icons, all following the feel and ambience of the main category. Our professionals also improved the software’s usability by designing icons for the different functions. Moreover, we compiled a handbook that helps The Qt Company follow the same visual style in their future projects.
