Redesign for queer sports club SC Janus e.V.

Language as connection

  • Community

    Regardless of gender or sexual identity, physical condition, age, background, or social status – anyone can participate and is allowed to.

  • Informative

    Followers receive quick and easy information on relevant topics and news from the association.

  • Lively

    It's about more than sports. At SC Janus, the exchange within the community is in the foreground. All contributions therefore show the diversity and freedom of the club.

  • Motivating

    Everything can, nothing must. Whether beginner:in or professional – everyone is welcome at SC Janus. All people in the club get a good feeling, for fun and motivation in sports.

New look – the design team comes into play

Elements and illustrations for appealing postings were derived from the existing SC Janus logo. They are freely scalable and can be colored differently. How about a colorful circle from the SC Janus logo? Or single fragments of the logo as background? Our created templates facilitate the preparation of contributions and are easy to implement for all members of SC Janus. Now the SC Janus logo also comes into its own as a background. The font is also part of the holistic social media appearance. The font was reworked as part of the redesign. A preset background of font is selected in the basic colors of the club – yellow, dark blue and light blue – and rotated as desired.

Through our sample templates, the club can be seen on the platform Instagram! Recommendable do's and don'ts are our guide for good postings and a higher reach – because that's what it's all about in the end: SC Janus inspires more people and members for the queer sports club with its new, up-to-date social media presence.

"Thank you denkwerk. Our whole team is more than happy about denkwerk's professional support! For a non-profit association – like ours in mass sports – such projects are not feasible at all – and not financially viable.
We are very happy about the new strategy, the new formats, the "fresh wind" and the professional appearance with which SC Janus will present itself in the future. With the new creative routes, design and storylines, we want to inspire more people in social media for the largest queer sports club – also as members."

Andrea Löwe Chairwoman of the Board at SC Janus e.V.

Finally – The Highlights

The collaboration with and for SC Janus was harmonious and solution-oriented. The results of the social media strategy are already being implemented. At this year's ColognePride Parade in Cologne, the SC Janus float is riding along – with a new design from denkwerk.
