In 2014 Telecom, a New Zealand-wide communications service provider (and a client of Signature Promotions since 2011) was rebranded to Spark to reposition itself for a digital future, aiming at a young, tech-savvy digital generation. It was one of the largest rebranding exercises New Zealand has ever seen. Signature Promotions got the opportunity to build an exciting new merchandise range for Spark.
This merchandise program needed to be attractive to a broad range of retailers, staff, and consumers, not only the new younger tech-savvy consumers but also the long-term loyal customers of Telecom. The re-branding was about far more than a name and color change. It was about bringing a completely new tone to how Spark communicates and what they offer their customers. The primary objective was to develop and produce a range of high-end, modern promotional merchandise to inform the market of Spark’s re-brand launch and beyond, delivered via a web-store.
Signature Promotions had to deliver a vast array of products which they had to successfully produce and supply in the 3 color-ways of the new branding (magenta, green and orange) to represent the meaning of ‘Spark' which is: life, potential, energy and creativity.
The range comprised a diverse selection including: cooler bags, jackets, beach towels, business journals and sandals, USB sticks, sunglasses, golf accessories, umbrellas, drink bottles, tablet holders, confectionery, balloons and t-shirts.
It was a successful project, one Signature Promotions are particularly proud of.
