IPG Mediabrands simplifies branding globally
IPG Mediabrands has streamlined its branding globally to Mediabrands, as part of its brand evolution. In a statement to Marketing, Mediabrands’ spokesperson said it explored a light refresh to its branding materials in order to drive consistency in how it communicates within its network, and across its community of partners.
“We have introduced updated elements including a simplified logo, the addition of our global brand colors to our business cards and beautiful and inspiring imagery of teamwork for our Mediabrands community to use. The simplification of the IPG Mediabrands logo to Mediabrands is simply to shine a light on Mediabrands on its own, with our focus remaining on supporting the brands within,” the spokesperson explained.
