The strategic consulting process to sharpen and optimise the FUNKE brand identity
In a strategic consulting process lasting over 18 months, CRENEO supported FUNKE Mediengruppe in sharpening and optimising its brand identity. The process began with an in-depth analysis of the diverse business areas and products. All subsidiaries and opera-tional units were recorded, categorised and compared for commonalities and/or overlaps.
The results formed the basis for adapting, standardising and simplifying the complex brand architecture in the next step together with the FUNKE brand team and the FUNKE finance and legal department. In the future, all operational company units will be subordinated to a 3-pillar strategy.
The new brand architecture of FUNKE Mediengruppe
The new brand identity follows the principle of monolithic brand architecture. Everything is subordinated to a single identity. The umbrella brand is clearly and unambiguously in the foreground. A common typography, colour scheme and image tonality ensure visual harmony.
