Etica Sgr

Keeping your place in a bustling market

The market for responsible investments is rapidly gowing in the recent years. Etica Sgr, a pioneer of ethical finance, has been establishing and proposing exclusively mutual funds since 2000. Its goal is to create returns opportunities by focusing on the real economy and rewarding companies and Nations that put into practice virtuous actions in environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters.
Strengthened by its uniqueness, Etica SGR needed to enhance its positioning in a highly competitive market, starting from a strategic contact channel: the website.

Conscious communication

Environmental protection, human rights, good corporate governance. Redesigning the site by communicating such a wide and complex range of values is not a easy task. The user must be able to perceive these values in every phase of the relationship with the brand.

Designing a new identity

To meet these needs, our design approach focused first on an in-depth analysis of all the aspects that most contributed to make Etica Sgr a leading savings management company for sustainable and responsible investments.

To find the right positioning we leveraged three aspects: tone of voice, user experience and visual identity, making sure that they could work in synergy to offer the user a complete, consistent and above all credible experience.

New color palette, typography, original handmade illustrations to describe the ethical choices behind the products offered, with a great care for details and a material feel able to recall the humanitarian values of the brand.

The redesign process proceeded with the reorganization of the information architecture, to highlight the "Stories" section dedicated to news and in-depth analysis of the main themes - environment, social and governance - specific to Etica Sgr and the activities it carries out daily in the sector, optimizing its SEO visibility.
