brazilian product design student, pedro villar, has envisioned a new logo and brand identity for honda. first established by soichiro honda as a manufacturer of motocycles in the 1940s, the company has since gone on to become one of the largest automobile brands in the world. considering their well-known tagline ‘the power of dreams’, this project by villar proposes a new visual and narrative language based on the timeless character of the company’s core value – dreams.

villar was inspired to undertake this conceptual project by considering that while honda pushes far in design and technology, it lacks inspiring branding. what if honda had not only an inspiring visual language but also a narrative that supports it? this work tries to answer that very question.

taking from their values, here villar defines what a dream is, using it as the starting point of the design process

 

 

the young designer has used honda’s own core value – ‘we are dream builders’ – to create a new brand identity. the proposal intends to highlight the timelessness of the concept of dreams while relating it back to the automotive brand. ‘the timeless dream builders, the entity that turns fiction into reality, no matter when’ – this is villar’s idea of a new honda.
