Kraft Foods abandons spark logo for classic shield (1903)

Kraft Foods abandons spark logo for classic shield (1903) | Design World | Scoop.it

October 1 saw what is probably this year's largest shake-up in the grocery brand market as Kraft Foods was split in two. The North American grocery business was spun off into Kraft Foods Inc., while the worldwide snacking company changed its name to Mondelez International.

 

A pleasant surprise after the break-up is that neither company will keep the "spark" logo adopted by Kraft Foods in 2009. Instead, Kraft Foods Inc., has chosen to embrace its heritage by adopting a modified version of its classic shield as corporate logo. The most noticeable difference is that the name isn't set in all caps. The resulting typographical treatment doesn't sit too comfortably inside the red frame.

 

Other aspects of Kraft Foods visual communication are also touting its heritage, with a friendly slab serif stencil typeface being used in ads and on the website. Some brand in Kraft's North American portfolio are Jell-O, Planters, Miracle Whip, Oscar Mayer, Maxwell House, Philadelphia and Velveeta.

Heineken Bottle Gets Makeover | K2 green

Heineken Bottle Gets Makeover | K2 green | Design World | Scoop.it

Wall Street Journal

BUSINESS

Updated September 17, 2012, 12:16 p.m. ET

By Mike Esterl

 

Heineken NV (HEIA.AE +0.29%) is giving its green bottle a face-lift in the U.S., hoping it will help its flagship Dutch lager and one-time leading beer import stand tall again after years of market-share losses.

 

A slimmer green Heineken bottle with a longer neck is arriving this week in New York City bars and restaurants, ahead of a national rollout by the Amsterdam brewer in January. Heineken, the first foreign beer to reach U.S. shores after Prohibition ended in 1933, had long stuck with a squat green bottle.

 

The world's third-largest brewer by volume also increased the advertising budget of its namesake lager by roughly half in the U.S. last year, and is banking on a marketing lift this fall from James Bond, more known for ordering vodka martinis.

 

(...)

 

The new Heineken bottle is 1.25 inches taller than the old bottle, with a longer, narrower neck the brewer believes makes it look more modern. A thumb groove is designed to improve the grip and encourages drinkers to hold the bottle lower down, keeping the beer colder. A strong shoulder aims to convey an air of "masculinity and pride,'' according to Heineken.

 

"As we are trying to bring a new generation into the brand, we feel this is a tangible way of revitalizing it,'' said Dolf van den Brink, the 39-year-old president of Heineken USA. The beer itself won't change, he added. "Since 1873 we've never touched the recipe.''

In The Netherlands, Heineken bottles used to be brown, the green version was for export only. In 2010 the company changed its packaging design from 15 to 5 versions.

 

Last year, September 2011, Heineken announced a new corporate visual identity.

 

Yesterday, Heineken announced that also in The Netherlands, the green K2-model (longneck) will replace the old brown model.

Thne new bottle is 3% lighter in weight and was designed in Amsterdam by DOBD, VBAT and the Heineken Branding Team.

History/Inspiration - Grolsch

In 2008 SABMillers iconic brand, Grolsch, introduced a new green version of its famous swing-top beer bottle. The bottle was designed by Flex Innovation Lab. The new 2012 design also incorporated a functional 'hand-grip' with embossed logo. The design process was recently aired as part of National Geographic programme "Made in NL'

A Radical Police Rebranding That Starts With A Superb Website

A Radical Police Rebranding That Starts With A Superb Website | Design World | Scoop.it

If the DMV is the physical manifestation of an inefficient and needlessly bureaucratic government, the websites of most government agencies do a fine job of bringing that frustration into the digital world. The overwhelming majority of them are disorganized, unsightly, and bursting at the seams with sections, sub-sections, buttons and links (often times in underlined blue text, betraying how hopelessly dated the pages really are). But the new website for the Milwaukee Police Department is different. It has a striking design, with vivid background images that stretch across the screen. A parallax scrolling effect makes photographs of officers and squad cars slide dynamically into place. And in perhaps the most radical departure from a typically labyrinthine police department site, Milwaukee Police News has only five different sections, and you don’t have to click any buttons or links to get to them.

 

The project began about a year ago, when Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn visited the local office of design agency Cramer-Krasselt to talk about building a new site for the force.

The Price of Branding? From $0 To $211 Million

The Price of Branding? From $0 To $211 Million | Design World | Scoop.it

Google spent nothing--Sergey Brin just opened up the free graphics app Gimp. Same with Coca-Cola--though John Pemberton’s bookkeeper drew the logo’s Spencerian script by hand. Nike famously gave just $35 to a design student. Which used to be an impressively thrifty figure, until Twitter picked up their ubiquitous bird for a mere $15 on iStockPhoto.

 

These, obviously, represent the low-end of what some of the world’s biggest companies have spent on their branding. The figures are from a list recently assembled by Stocklogos and Business Insider, which Trendland turned into a series of infographics. And if you think a company that spends nothing on their logo is a bit nauseating, wait until you see the opposite end of the spectrum.

Pepsi spent $1 million on their Obama-esque rebranding a few years back, and the BBC spent almost double that on a logo that basically just untoggled the italics button. But that’s nothing compared to the $221 million BP paid to make their oil company look like a new-age organic grocer--though maybe it was one of the few cases where we can all agree it was worth every penny. (It’s not clear from the stats here whether that $221 million was just for design services, or for the rebranding campaign, in which case $221 million is probably low.)

 

Alongside the more extreme spends, the $100,000 a close-to-bankrupt Steve Jobs paid Paul Rand for his profitless startup NeXT seems pretty close to market value.

Nimalan Sri's curator insight, April 3, 2013 6:13 PM

In this article it talks about some of biggest brands in the worlds. This article also talks in depth about  the brand and its image to consumers and how it shows the effect in the way of advertising their brand.  If the image of the brand needs to be changed it should show positive image to the consumers as it attract them towards it. It also shows some of the companies as an example to illustrate how much they spent on their brand image. For example Google spent $0 in 1998 where as to BP spent over $221 million to rebrand their image.

 

From you understanding of this article what’s your thoughts and what will you do to rebrand your image..

Willicia Spider-Silva Vake's comment, April 3, 2013 7:50 PM
This article emphasizes the impact in which branding affects a business. The article uses some of the world’s biggest brands as an example and highlights specific manoeuvres that those brands have made in terms of branding. I think that it is important for any company to maintain its identity amongst its consumer when there is a transition period of rebranding.
Ravneel Chandra's comment, April 5, 2013 6:32 PM
This article looks at the ridiculous amount some large companies spend on re-branding their brands. Re-branding should always lead to attract positive outcomes, not negative, since customers have strong attachments to the brand image. Refreshing a brands image could mean the longevity of the brand or the death of the brand, a fine line of getting it right or terribly wrong. Consumer interaction is required to make sure that the re-branding will not surprise the customer but they can be comfortable with the subtle changes, whilst trying to obtain new customers.

A new identity for the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society | News | Design Week

A new identity for the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society | News | Design Week | Design World | Scoop.it

Wed, 3 Oct 2012 | By Angus Montgomery

 

Conran Design Group has created a new identity for the Whale & Dolphin Conservation Society, which is based on an image of a whale tail, or fluke.

 

The consultancy was approached to create the new identity through fellow Havas Worldwide agency Cake, which also works with WDCS. The organisation was looking to rebrand as it marks its 25th birthday this year. CDG says it has aimed to create an identity that ‘acts as both a universally recognised reference to whales and dolphins and also as a practical device to highlight messages or as a call to action’.

 

The new identity is launching on the charity’s website in a new film created by CDG, narrated by Sienna Miller and featuring music from Zero 7.

Apple logo may become illegal in Russia, called to be replaced by a cross

Apple logo may become illegal in Russia, called to be replaced by a cross | Design World | Scoop.it

Monday, 8 October 2012, 7:48 (EST)

By: Stoyan Zaimov
Christian Post

 

Christians from Russia's Orthodox community are demanding that the country's Apple division remove the famous half-bitten apple logo from its products and replace it with a cross, because they find the apple image offensive to their beliefs.

 

In popular culture, an apple is often used to represent the fruit that Adam and Eve ate from the Tree of Knowledge when tempted by the devil, as found in Genesis 3 in the Bible – although the exact type of fruit is not mentioned in Scripture.

Still, conservative Christians in Russia have insisted that the logo should be removed and replaced with a cross, Xbitlabs.com reported from a translated article from Interfax news agency.
