Building a people-first design system for Tessian

Human-first cybersecurity

A digital-first brand identity for Sequoia-backed cybersecurity firm Tessian — the world’s first Human Layer Security platform — as it proposes a new human-first approach to cybersecurity and scales for a global audience of enterprise customers.


Stop threats. Not business.

Using machine learning technology, Tessian automatically stops data breaches and security threats caused by human error – like data exfiltration, accidental data loss, business email compromise and phishing attacks – with minimal disruption to employees’ workflow. As a result, employees are empowered to do their best work, without security getting in their way.

Built for scale

Following a successful $42M Series B from Sequoia, we designed a human-facing brand identity that differentiates Tessian’s position as a market leader. Partnering with experts from Selman Design, Baunfire and the Tessian in-house team, we created a unified brand architecture, a scaleable brand system and extensive brand applications, from employee swag packs, to an exciting brand video.


The result is a distinctive, precise and dynamic visual identity that revitalises Tessian’s core mission, energises its internal teams under the same battlecry and prepares the company for its grand plans to scale.
