Vodafone: unveils latest Power of Red global identity

The new 'Power of Red' identity, created by The Brand Union, features a red rhombus shape emerging from Vodafone’s inverted comma logo.

Vodafone’s latest identity is already featuring in advertising for its 4G proposition, after it launched the network on 29 August.

The visual identity was last updated in 2005 and Vodafone claims the new identity is different because it will work across all media platforms rather than just print.

In addition to TV and print activity, it will also be included in outdoor, digital, in-store and retail packaging activity.

Barbara Haase, brand director at Vodafone group, said: "Our new visual brand identity is a true representation of Vodafone – never static, always moving, and ensuring that our technology empowers everyone who uses it."

The identity will be rolled out across to all markets between now and the end of November.

The news comes as Vodafone prepares to sell its 45% stake in US-based Verizon for £84bn, which will make it the third-biggest corporate deal in history.

It is expected around 70% of the proceeds will be given to shareholders, which would still leave a substantial amount for Vodafone to pour into acquisitions.
