Striking the right balance for community and cohesion at Ciena.
Bringing consistency through the Mosaic system
The Ciena corporate initiatives, including the ERGs, Ciena Cares as well as the People Promise, have all been redesigned to align with Ciena’s new Mosaic design system. Each of these have been modernized and crafted for optimal legibility in both digital and print. They have been completely redrawn with more consistency and reﬁnement to serve as ambassadors for the care and consideration of the Ciena brand.
Bringing culture to life
Color is used as an intuitive visual cue to bring the unique culture of each ERG to life. For example, the Black at Ciena ERG Symbol color palette is inspired by the iconic 4-color palette of the Pan-African flag. The Latinx at Ciena ERG Symbol color palette is inspired by the architecture and textiles found in Spain and the Americas.
