the logo

Friendly, modern, and straightforward. The rounded font, weight, and modern sensibility brings the logo up-to-date with a refreshed look and feel without losing its brand equity.

old versus new

How can one tell the difference between letter forms? By examining the lowercase 'a' of two seemingly similar sans serif typefaces one will notices the complexity of each individual letterform.  A comparison of how the stems of the letterforms finish and how the bowls meet the stems quickly reveals the difference in character between the two.new leaselabs letterform

our approach: simplistic yet sleek

This redesign pays homage to LeaseLabs' brand equity while introducing a glimpse into the future as part of the RealPage, Inc.® family. It features subtle shifts in the color palette, logo treatments, and brand flexibility.

Our new color palette integrates with RealPage's secondary platinum color with our own set of medium greys. As a result, we've produced a neutral, yet highly flexible set of color tones that allows for more flexibility and opportunities to pair with bold accent colors effortlessly along the way.

design elements

We've deconstructed our original logo to bring to life several design elements. These icons support our overall design strategies and can also be used to indicate a call-to-action.

product icons

When seeking inspiration to design a set of product icons, we found it from an unlikely source - the New York City subway system. New York’s Subway is an essential part of the city. Serving as one of the world’s oldest and most extensive public transit systems, the subway’s 24 lines traverse Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx twenty-four hours a day.

To best help its passengers navigate through the concrete jungle, the city established a system of icons that is simple and easily understood by all. They accomplished this with the use of abbreviations housed in simple, token-like shapes. As a result, we've adopted a similar philosophy to identify each of the products that live within our repertoire.
