Universal Pictures – Brand Identity Refinement

Universal Pictures required an overall assessment and simplification of its brand identity. I advised in phasing out outdated variants and to pare down to a core suite of logos for clearer, more uniform brand recognition.


Scope:

Logo design  /  Brand divisions identity  /  Logo system platform  /  Corporate business system design  /  Brand presentation designs  /  Interactive brand identity guidelines  /  Brand asset online database  /  Electronic newsletters  /  Copywriting consultation  /  Identity rollout announcement

Among the many enhancements are a freshly refined Universal logo with redrawn letterforms and simplified continent details, as well as the creation of a series of special use rendered logos.

 Following this effort, I unified the design of the following sub-brand identities:


• Universal Pictures Home Entertainment

• Universal Filmed Entertainment Group 

• Universal 1440 Entertainment

• Universal All-Access

• Universal Brand Development​​​​​​​


This required rebuilding each letterform for typographic continuity and clarity.

Also updated were both a comprehensive Brand Guidelines as well as an at-a-glance quick reference logo guidelines that further strengthen and unified the Universal brand. Both feature convenient links to direct-download brand content along with a new personalized e-signature design. In full, these guidelines are a comprehensive source to ensure consistent usage throughout the company and across all media.
