a⬟story infuse humanity in technology and keeps it there

throughout all their activities.

The company Advantage Software Factory, abbreviated as ASF, was founded in 2000 and in 2020, ASF is renamed a⬟story following a rebranding process that reflects more of what they believe in and how they see the technology world.

New name, same people

The brand name a⬟story is a contracted form of Advantage Software Factory, that was created to represent the company in a more human way. Being an acronym pronounced as two actual words, astory has the potential for creating a distinctive and relatable brand voice.

New logo, same people 

The logo displays the structure and angularity of a custom-made type and the symbol of human perfection through the geometric form of a pentagon. All as visual representations in a digital world.

The design language follows the idea that the digital world can be reduced to one singular graphic element, the pixel. Here, the pixel has the shape of a pentagon.

The pentagon was replicated to create an entire grid structure for the letters of the name. The custom-made font is inspired by LED panels technology used in the beginnings.
