The rebranding exercise was a well-structured task coined by Clay Design Strategy over a one year period, and is accompanied by a new logo that will have a more native connect (in Hindi) even as it continues to be led by its global guidelines. However, the operations will continue to provide localized solutions which will be way more rooted in the ethos of the communities.
Key elements of the brand revamp include an interactive fit to purpose design system, an empowering, child-friendly, positive imagery and new iconography colour palette that will encapsulate the organization’s mission.
“We are rebranding ourselves to suit the local stakeholders, to be more inclusive & relatable and hence connect better to the community. After a year-long strategic brainstorming with internal and external stakeholders, we strongly believed that the organization has an opportunity to be seen as a local, relatable child rights NGO by crafting a strong vision and purpose with the Indian children at the heart of it, hence developing a clear focused Bharat mission and well-defined programs and initiatives to deliver on the same with as local as possible and as international as necessary approach,” shares, Neha Dantre, Head – Brand & Engagement Save the Children (Bal Raksha Bharat).
