dCell, the strategic design consultancy division of Lowe Lintas + Partners, has successfully executed the re-branding of the AG8 Group back to its original name, Aakriti Group. Along with the name change, dCell was also instrumental in creating a new logo for Aakriti Group that resonates with the company’s belief of being future-ready.


Aakriti Group is one of the fastest growing realty groups in India. The brief given to dCell was to create an identity that best represents Aakriti’s aspirations and work philosophy of always being there for its customers along their every step.

Commenting on the brief given to dCell, Hemant Kumar, CMD, Aakriti Group said, “Though we had migrated to a new name just a few years back, there existed a strong residual emotional connect between our customers and the Aakriti name. Hence, it was only logical to go back to future. Furthermore, we needed an identity that best represents the group aspirations and work philosophy of always being there for our customers in every step.”


Adding further Kumar said, “We were happy to partner with dCell who helped us in this re-branding project in a very strategic, logical and creative way delivering on all objectives set.”


In the new logo unit, one of the ‘a’s in the wordmark has been crafted to create a brand shorthand. This represents the relationship Aakriti shares with its stakeholders/customers, a strong inseparable bond. This is metaphorically expressed via a shadow to the letter ‘a’. A round lowercase typeface is used to create a wordmark that is warm, approachable and welcoming.

The colour system uses orange to lend vibrancy and represents optimism while grey symbolizes reliability, solidity, intelligence and innovation. Having the shorthand integrated within the logotype creates a unique, personalised logo with a strong personality that beautifully captures Aakriti’s work philosophy.


Arun Ahuja, VP at dCell commented, “We have created a logo and a visual grammar that captures the people-centric philosophy that is at the very core of Aakriti’s ethos.”
