Triple awards success for AkzoNobel



Published March 16, 2010
AkzoNobel was one of the big winners at the inaugural Transform Awards, the UK’s only dedicated celebration of rebranding, brand transformation and reputational change. Established by Communicate magazine, the honors were judged by a panel of international branding experts, communications practitioners and academics, with AkzoNobel receiving two gold prizes and one silver at the event held in London’s Notting Hill.
    
The company scooped gold in both the “Best corporate rebrand following a merger or acquisition” and the “Best rebrand in the chemicals sector” categories. The silver award was achieved for “Best overall visual identity.”
    
“These awards are fantastic recognition for all the effort we put into launching the new AkzoNobel,” said Akzo­Nobel’s head of corporate branding, Berry Oonk. “We faced some strong competition in all three categories and to have done so well is welcome acknowledgement of our creativity, strategic thinking and teamwork.”
    
The distinguished judging panel included Graham Hales, managing director of Interbrand London; Cheryl Giovannoni, European president of Landor Associates; Bill Darling, managing director of Saffron brand consultants; and Fred Burt, managing director of the UK office of leading strategic branding company Siegel+Gale.
