Next generation of Czech UX community around newly established UX Academy (rebranded to UXWell), where professionals meet and share knowledge with the new potential designers, researchers, or product owners, needs a strong brand.
The initial name UX Academy did not reflect intention and motivation of new educational community. Learning process, knowledge sharing and communication are performed by modern and less-known methodologies, therefore, a link to a traditional academic system was not appropriate.
Time spent with Why? How? and What? questions helped founders to clearly define the principles of community.
The principles were transferred into a communication guide for members, which also shapes language used with non-members.
To help with a consistency in the communication, to understand and to work with a brand personality (principles and values), the Sage was set as an archetypal role model.
Based on all the inputs, with the founders we created a longlist and then a shortlist of possible options. The shortlist was evaluated with members and potential members of the comunity.

Based on agreed limitations, e.g. subbrand needs, aesthetic qualities, yes/no existing examples, a few ideas reflecting the principles and values were sketched and evaluated internally.
The most basic design process may be seen as the squiggle, which captures the essential quality of a project that moves from a state of messy questions to a state of polished answers (source). And any learning process is the same. You are always moving, getting closer to the clarity.
