WPP rebrands to reflect Read reinvention

WPP rebrands

Holding company WPP has issued an all-encompassing rebrand to reflect the restructuring of the business which boasts more than 140,000 staff globally.

The rebrand was handled by Jim Prior, who leads the branding agency Superunion which was formed following a merger of five of WPP's top agencies this year, and Landor chief Jane Geraghty.

The new augmented look is designed to play in varying environments and colour palettes to show how the agency network can adapt to clients and industry challenges.

Prior said: “Our ambition was to present WPP with the same energy and creativity that we offer to our clients right across the company. There’s a lot of pride and ambition in WPP that is now united under a strong and dynamic brand identity.”

Geraghty added: “WPP has always been transformative – bringing together the best people and ideas to meet the needs of our clients. We now have an evolved brand and expression of purpose that better reflects who we are as a company, our collective capabilities, and what we offer.”

Accompanying the creative is a new website that looks to showcase the group’s digital expertise and offer up a hint of what it can provide for clients. It is describing itself as a "creative transformation" company.

On Tuesday 11 December, the company outlined its new strategy day at an investors event in London.
