Long story short

Long story short

Binit is a dynamic start-up rooted in long-term field expertise, a complex understanding of waste flows and circular economy. Their passionate, hands-on team is forging a radically fresh way of thinking about how waste and recycling can be managed better.

Challenging a notoriously unexciting and corporate industry, where very little has changed since horse-drawn carriages were picking up rubbish from the streets, they needed to communicate a radical change in thinking. When we came onboard, Binit was in the discovery stage of a unique SaaS platform development (website + web app + bins scanning functionality in the MVP phase) which they needed support with. They had crystal clarity on their mission and knew that users will come first—but didn't necessarily know how to start.

At this early stage, Binit was still finding their feet in terms of identity so we did a lot of work together on the brand definition, vision alignment, and clear communication visually and otherwise, inside and out.

Thanks to putting the user's experience at the forefront, Binit is dramatically improving the way that businesses access and interact with waste and recycling services. In doing this they are also reducing the number of big, heavy vehicles operating in urban areas and cleaning up the streets at the same time! Win-win-win!
