Innovation from the inside out
Interbrand, the leading global consultancy, developed the visual and verbal identities of the program based on research and analysis with external business partners.
The name attix comes from the word attic, the highest place in a house – where it is possible to see beyond the horizon. The letters “a” and the double “t” come from Mattos Filho’s brand – strong characteristics of the firm’s name. It also features the letter “x”, a concept representing connections and bridges for building partnerships between customers and the best startups in the market.
Anne Grecco, Interbrand’s strategy director, considers that the new brand materializes the firm’s desire to expand legal innovations in the market. “Building bridges is at the firm’s core, inspiring collaboration between technology, players in the legal market and its clients. For this, we created the brand’s visual expression with forms representing expansion and connection.”
