Building the Iconic Brand

Iconic Holding brings a wealth of professional financial experience to the digital assets and blockchain industry. Previously known as Iconiq Lab, the world’s first decentralized venture capital group and token sale accelerator program, Iconic has transformed into a premier crypto asset management firm. We cater to all crypto investor risk preferences through our sub-brands, Lab and Funds, while driving crypto investment adoption through the AMaaS crypto asset management platform and the ICNQ token.

Our new branding includes narratives which define Iconic and its sub-brands. Clear styles for offline and online communication are established to create a strong brand presence throughout all media. Visual communication elements such as typography and colour palettes create a unified identity that is universally recognized with the Iconic name and logo.

Brand Evolution

Based in Frankfurt, Germany, Iconiq Lab quickly became recognized globally as a trusted industry leader in the token sale space, investing into and on boarding 9 projects which went on to raise over €20 million through 2018. Listening to demand from investors, Iconiq Lab expanded its trusted investment offerings by launching Iconiq Funds, a crypto asset index fund manager, in Fall 2018.

As Iconiq continued to expand it was imperative to align each of the distinct business units to the singular vision of a tokenized, crypto economy. Thus, Iconiq Lab evolved into Iconic Holding, a premier crypto asset management firm that caters to all investor risk preferences through Iconic Lab and Funds while driving crypto investment adoption.
