Two seasoned realtors needed an identity for their new venture, Mälardalens Fastighetsförmedling, so they reached out and we decided to tackle it together. Both of them have been active in the business for a while, so they knew the market and their competitive strengths.
Like any branding process, this one started with conversations where we talked
through their vision, mission, and unique offerings.
Adaptability, custom solutions,
local knowledge and connections
Serious, trustworthy, local,
As realtors, they’ll sell houses and apartments in all shapes and sizes, and in any condition; small, big, new and old. One thing they all have in common is a strong foundation and structure, and it was that type of reliability and trust that I wanted Mälardalens Fastighetsförmedling’s identity to communicate.
Mälardalens Fastighetsförmedling is quite a mouthful, even for a Swede. To balance it out - to cut the fat - we decided to shorten Fastighetsförmedling to Fastighetsförm. It still makes sense, but looks better and stands out from other locals realtors.
Mälardalens Fastighetsförmedling → Mälardalens Fastighetsförm.
Mälardalens Fastighetsförm.’s local knowledge and network is something they take a lot of pride in. So we decide to let that shine through in their identity by using blue, cool, colours that reflects Mälardalens geographical location, it’s closeness to the archipelago, and when combined creates a colourful, vibrant and modern colour palette to work with.

Hurme Geometric Sans The typeface used in logo had to be bold, reliable, and packed with character – just like the guys behind the brand. Hurme Geometric Sans ticked all of those boxes for me:
Yrsa Selling a house means a lot of paperwork. Finding potential buyers means a lot of marketing, in both traditional media and in new, screen-based, environments. With this in mind, I went looking for a typeface that represents MF’s characteristics, functions in all situations and is legible in longer paragraphs. Yrsa is a great serif typeface with many weights, making it a perfect match.
“Hitta hem med oss” means two things in Swedish. Literally, “Find houses with us” and “Find home with us”. We decided to use this as MF has ambitions to not only help you sell your current place, but also proactively help others find the right home for them.
