Redesigns are not easy. With over 5 years of emotions attached to our old identity, we knew this was never going to be an easy task. I must admit we tried undertaking this endeavor a year back and failed to see it through. We at least had our fair share of learnings from that experience. What we were certain now is that a lot has changed in the last few years - in the ecosystem, for us as a company and for partners that we work with. Our identity needs to reflect this change and at the same time inspire us to lead the change.
