By 2021, the world was used to virtual events and webinars but amidst the virtual fatigue, the marquee event of Trend Micro - CLOUDSEC 2021 aimed to create an experience that engaged its audiences in unique ways while also surpass their previous year’s brilliance. The anchor of the theme was to appeal to their key target audience and be relevant to their current cybersecurity and business needs, while promising unique perspectives & solutions. The keywords were to create “engagement and excitement.”
CLOUDSEC 2020, was the year of waking up to Digital Transformation as the world changed overnight and 2021? In 2021 being on Cloud wasn’t going to be enough.There was a paradigm shift in outlook as Cloud accelerated and the next leap of growth demanded ‘Reimagination’. Thus, the theme of 2021 was founded on this insight, a simple, direct and telling theme - ‘Reimagine Your Cloud’.
Visualizing ‘Reimagination’ through a bold design.
The Tangram is a puzzle made up of seven flat polygons that are combined to produce various shapes. It encourages experimentation and discovery and sharpens spatial perception and lateral thinking. The Tangram was aptly chosen as the core graphic that brought the reimagination idea for CLOUDSEC to life. A simple, abstract & modern design, it enables exploration, experimentation and discovery, an innate part of being human. The Tangram brings infinite possibilities, only limited by imagination itself. The more you push your imagination to reimagine, the more avenues you unlock. Cloud is the same, it is a world of infinite possibilities and opportunities bound only by our creativity
The true power and impact of CLOUDSEC is best reflected in a logo unit that is simple yet strong and reflects CLOUDSEC’s global presence. A primary set of icons are constructed using tangrams, creating a distinguished design language that truly reflects the meaning of reimagination. A Secondary set of icons act as accents and gradients to create balance and not overwhelm the design. All the elements are brough together by a colour palette of warm colours like Red, Green & Blue that reflect a strong foundation and used as the base of explorations and energy
