Streamlining a visual identity for different learning


Learn@Boeing is an internal education platform for employees aimed at changing the way they learn, lead, and work at Boeing. The platform provides education in a number of areas, including digital education, leadership development, and more.

The client recognized that each of their existing programs were visually disjointed from one another. They approached the All Purpose team to unify each of these different learning segments through marketing materials and a more streamlined visual identity overall.

A tight time constraint was placed on the All Purpose team, with a turnaround goal being just shy of two weeks. This meant the team had to be efficient with learning how to apply Boeing’s visual guidelines and producing polished branding designs and clean animations.

Branding Rationale

In terms of branding, the AP team focused on systemizing assets and applying them to different visual use cases, like merchandise, posters, email signatures, and more.

It was important to codify how to apply assets, like spacing or colour use, to each scenario for future use beyond All Purpose’s involvement.

This facilitated Boeing marketing teams to be autonomous with their materials.

Consistency and Curiosity

There were a number of iterations that were explored for the Boeing Learning logo mark. The final version features a spark, an ‘L’, and is in the shape of a plane’s tail.

The spark represents ideas and knowledge and is angled upwards, representing growth and development.

A subtle design choice was the upward path being in the shape of an L, for Learn@Boeing. The path has a 37-degree angle, which is one of the Boeing brand identity’s principles.

Overall, the aim was not for the graphic to be too literal, or say too much. The main goal was to keep it aligned with Boeing brand standards but distinctive for the Learn@Boeing program itself.

Words are not enough to say thanks for all the incredible ideas, teamwork, revisions, and positive attitudes that helped bring initial scratches on an airplane napkin to an actual campaign for L&D. The full package of assets to support the launch is incredible!
