Established’s branding for The Knights, a New York City-based orchestra, demonstrates well the stunning effect of a well-designed black & white motif.

Colour increases brand recognition up 80%, according to a study conducted by the University of Loyola. A surfeit of additional studies can attest to the power of color in grabbing a viewer’s attention. But what of a choice to exclude color?

Established’s branding of The Knights nonchalantly illustrates that lack of color can be just as effective. In its understated simplicity, the contrast of the two juxtaposing colors of black and white reflect well the orchestra’s brand focus towards the classy, elegant and professional.
