The choice of name came from the customer. The word Uird has a extraterritorial meaning, its origin is from Norse mythology. The name of the first Norne: "Urdr".
According to Norse mythology, Urd is the goddess of the past. It was represented alongside the other skuld (future) and Verdandi (present) usually as the figure of a woman or of a mythical being who lived in Uroarbrunnr responsible along with her sisters for deciding the fate of humans.
Past, present and future should not be seen in a way individual, but interconnected as a network.
Translating the UIRD's vision of seeing the world. Since urðr is nothing more than the sum of our acts, choices and past events that determined the shape of our present, this present that in turn will determine our future, thus manifesting the idea of destiny as a flow continuous. Extending its meaning in Old English we come to verb "weorthan", with meaning "to come to be", in an unfolding resulted in "wyrd" that simplifying the spelling to Portuguese: UIRD.
Psychologist Carl G. Jung used the concept of archetype in his theory of the human psyche. Archetypes reside in the collective unconscious of people around the world. We use these archetypes to bring your associations to the brand concept.

The visual identity was approved in the first proposal with the client. Thanks to the consistent briefing and the confidence given. With a 30-day development, the client received his visual identity and can now use the arts and layouts to communicate his brand.
I've had the chance to work with Danielle in a few projects for my company and never been dissapointed. The communication is very fluid and she has an incredible skill to turn abstract ideas and thoughts from what has been said into concrete and visual concepts. She always brings structured informations and clearly to understand.I have been involved throughout the whole process by the continuous feedback that she provides of the work in progress and that didn't change the fact that I was positivelly surprised by the final result every single time.
