Worldcolor Introduces New Branding and LogoSeptember 18, 2009
Worldcolor is more than a name; it is the essence of who we are and what we do. World is a testimony to our determination to lead and expand our business across all borders. Color is the essence of our business; reaching and touching people with printed and digital images and related services. We have merged the two words into one to bring new energy, a new-economy feel and a modern edge to the name.
Our brand promise encapsulates our message to customers: “Worldcolor is the partner of choice for reaching your target audience through print and electronic communications.”
“Today we take an important step in the marketing of our fresh start. This marks the beginning of a new era for our organization, “said Mark Angelson, Chairman and CEO of Worldcolor. Strengthened by the confidence of our loyal customers, suppliers and employees, Worldcolor is positioned to resume its leadership role in transforming our industry and to meeting the changing needs of our customers.”
Our logo is the visual representation of our name and our business purpose. The stylized W connotes growth and progression and represents a webpress-like icon evoking our heritage and core competency. The name warrants multiple colors. The blue is part of our heritage and provides visual continuity. The green represents our commitment to sustainability. Finally the style of the logo is bold, demonstrating a solid foundation that is forward-looking and determined.
