Europe’s best brand work

champers.jpg

The journeys brands make are much more complex than periods of inertia interspersed by the occasional rebrand exercise.

A brand image needs to be constantly monitored, upheld and implemented across every single brand touchpoint. By doing this the organisation can benefit from improved engagement with all of its stakeholders, both internal and external.

Since it began in 2010, the Transform Awards has recognised brands that have evolved, its recognised strong visual identities, packaging, signage and much more. This year’s categories include new categories, ‘Best place or nation brand’ and ‘Best use of typography’. The awards recognise organisations in every sector that demonstrate an excellent brand management strategy.

The shortlist for Transform Awards Europe has just been revealed, and companies with the potential to take trophies home include Tesco, UBS, Marks & Spencer, Lush Cosmetics and Lloyds Banking Group. Moroccan National Tourism Office is shortlisted for ‘Best place or nation brand’ with agency Spring.

Agencies who have received multiple shortlisted entries include Rufus Leonard, Goosebumps Brand Consultancy, The Clearing, The Allotment, Appetite, Bell, Endpoint and Living Group. Non-profits, including Breast Cancer Now and SafeLives, a charity dedicated to ending domestic abuse, have also made the shortlist.

Held at The Brewery venue in London, the awards will provide the opportunity for branding professionals from all over Europe to meet and celebrate their work. The Transform Awards have grown to encompass new territories and are now held in the MENA, APAC and North America regions, as well as in Europe. While the Transform Awards MENA is accepting entries until 10 February – with the early deadline falling on 21 January – Transform North America and Transform APAC will soon launch their 2016 programmes.

A Transform Europe conference will precede the 2016 awards, with speakers on topics such as; communicating brand values to a multinational audience, creating a brand that can outlive changes to its products and services and a session on branding case studies from previous Transform Awards-winners. The Transform conferences are a great opportunity for professionals in the branding, design and communications industries to see what their peers are up to and to gain inspiration for the ongoing development and betterment of their own branding projects. Book your Transform conference tickets here.

The Transform Awards Europe will take place on the evening of 22 March 2016. Click here to book your place or for any information regarding the Transform Awards, please contact the Transform events team on +4420 7998 6263
