Creative agency network iris has announced the launch of new logo and new proposition. The new logo, based around the âIâ of iris, is a bold move away from the existing identity, and a bold visual representation of moving forward. âFor the Forwardâ focuses on streamlining and strengthening its multi-specialist network offering for clients.
Globally, iris has grown 13 per cent year on year since 2015 and predicts the network will generate over ÂŁ100 million worth of revenue for the first time in 2018. The announcement follows the successive expansions of the agency with its office opening in Bangkok, and senior hires across the region. The growth also reflects the progressive brands that the agency works with, within the APAC region â the likes of Starbucks, Samsung, Philips, JĂ€germeister, Chang Beer, Lego, among others.
The new tagline is a statement that reflects the networkâs skill set and what it delivers for clients â the reality of how to approach and benefit from disruption. A commitment to take âbold leapsâ rather than playing it safe.
All offices within the network will work with the new branding, existing brands will be streamlined to offer more clarity of service to clients, and acquired companies within the iris network will rebrand to fully sit within the iris ecosystem.
Ian Millner, Founder and CEO, iris, said, âWe asked ourselves, how can we be the most valued and valuable partner our clients can have? Networks are struggling to grow; consultancies are coming in, in-sourcing is growingâŠÂ For the Forward is representative of our belief that in this unstable and disruptive time the last thing a client should do is play it safe. Our promise to clients is that we will move their business forward and navigate this new landscape. The ability to evolve and move forward is necessary for survival â and it is something we share with the clients we work with.â
Rajive Mathur, Business Head, iris Delhi, said, ââFor the Forwardâ further upholds our commitment to keep moving, to evolve every day, and to be able to meet the needs of our clients and create meaningful value for them. It epitomises the agility and ambition of iris Delhi.â
The iris network now consists of iris, serving as the integrated creative shop; Iris Concise providing management consultancy, data analytics and CRM; and Iris Culture specialising in sports marketing, brand experience and entertainment. Some existing clients will work with iris across all of these areas of the business; others will work with iris on a specialist discipline level.
