Left Field is an on-demand staffing service specializing in the placement of agricultural workers with farmers in Tasmania, Australia. Their target audience – are the locals and international backpackers looking for an adventure with some seasonal work to help pay for it. They came to us after acquiring the business, with expanded service ideas, a brand new name, and the need for a complete brand overhaul.
In partnership with the client, we have designed the brand positioning and a visual identity system consisting of a logo, and a reduced color palette inspired by the early sunrises and late sunsets on a Tasmanian farm. A custom set of patterns influenced by the patterns found in the crops grown on various farms, and a set of bold geometric illustrations. The final deliverables consisted of a brand guidelines document to govern the newly designed brand identity system, a website, and various marketing materials. The website work not only consisted of visual design but also content strategy and copy. While we kept the website simple and easy to use, we found a few opportunities for delight through animations – for example, right after a job seeker submits a job application they are greeted by a farmer and his dog driving out into the fields to get started with the day.
