MUNICH 25/10/2021 – Alphabet presents its comprehensive, in-depth brand refreshment. The new strategic focus of the company is reflected in the redesigned logo and corporate identity. With this, Alphabet displays a big step forward into a new era of mobility.
Alphabet, a leading provider of future mobility, reveals its new brand image and brand focus. For the company that has been successfully operating since 1997, this marks an important milestone. “Alphabet is a forward-thinking company. Spotting and anticipating trends, implementing new mobility and technology and just overall flexibility to change is a core part of who we are. Now is the time for us to adopt the brand appearance to the upcoming changes in our sector”, says Markus Deusing, CCO of Alphabet International.
One major point is the company’s strengthened commitment to sustainability. “Sustainability is the leading topic of the future – in all areas – and we want to play a vital part in shaping this future”, says Deusing. “This summer, the EU finally announced Europe’s goal to become the first continent to be climate neutral by 2050. This clearly increases the need for action on the part of our customers but also for us as a mobility provider. Considering that company cars are not only driven on average more than 2 times as often as private vehicles but also account for over 60 percent of all new cars sold in Europe. Given this background, the electrification and thus the decarbonisation of fleets is of particular importance for achieving climate targets. It will be more important than ever to not only make full use of our strong expertise in consulting, but also to continuously develop even more convenient & flexible services with creativity and excellence. This and the trusting partnership with our customers and their drivers set us apart from the competition.”
Alphabet plans to promote sustainability through the extension of its already existing range of eMobility and new mobility options via AlphaElectric. With the implementation of its so called “sustainable consulting” Alphabet specifically offers its know-how on CO2 targets, CO2 neutrality and further sustainability topics to its customers.
Another catalyst for the coming changes is the topic of digitalisation. The future of fleets will be determined by digital solutions that make customers' lives much easier and more convenient. This is accompanied by the significant flexibilisation of solutions, which simultaneously navigate the customer through an ever-increasing complexity. An example of such a convenient digital solution is the AlphaGuide app, which combines simple self-service with connectivity to make mobility as convenient as possible for both decision makers and users. The new brand identity reflects this deeply rooted understanding of service and customers and translates Alphabet's new direction into a new brand promise and claim: "Your mobility. Made easy."
Starting with the new, straightforward logo, Alphabet's design and market presence becomes catchier, more emotional, and modern. To create this look, key design elements of the former appearance have been reinterpreted and new facets have been added to make the brand more digital and vibrant. “The new design is as agile and modern as we are. But it’s much more than only aesthetics. First and foremost, it reflects the changes within the company”, Deusing explains. The new brand is expressed through a new design with a new Alphabet logo as well as new colors - a deep blue, a warm coral and a fresh light blue to create a modern and contemporary brand impression. Along with a new typeface, the Alphabet brand is now optimised for the digital world to communicate and interact with its customers and other stakeholders in 31 markets.
With this brand refreshment, Alphabet underlines its new position and company values. Responsibility, Expertise and Partnership have been chosen to simplify, modernise and humanise Alphabet and thus build the new brand foundation. “We are actively driving the change for our customers and us. There is an exciting journey ahead of us”, Deusing concludes.
