As we welcome in 2019, we will be looking to set some fresh new trends, but as a last look back we thought it would be nice to remember some of our favourites brands from 2018. 

Most of us have probably seen rebrands from big players such as Uber and John Lewis, but here are a few our favourites from 2018 which you may not have seen, or even heard of.

What we like

  • The video messaging ‘We speak 47 languages but it doesn’t matter, we speak children’ is very powerful
  • The icon is simple and heartwarming
  • The ‘We love’ (heart) and ‘We Heal’ (plaster) icons are endearing and speak volumes without saying anything

  • The bold application is positive and fun without being over the top

Not what you’d expect but The Houses of Parliament have done a great job adapting the brand with a digital-first focus.

What we like

Lufthansa


German-based airline Lufthansa is one of the worlds leading airlines with a fleet of 350 planes, flying to over 200 destinations in 74 countries.

At first glance it’s hard to notice exactly what changes they’ve made as they’re so minimal. But their intentions weren’t to reinvent the brand, but to evolve what they already had. This also allows a softer rollout without older materials looking completely out of place. Overall it’s cleaner, more elegant and more sophisticated, proving how just some small adjustments can have a huge impact.

What we like

  • Shows how some subtle updates can really modernise a brand
  • They have successfully retained the heritage
  • Evolution of the Crane icon brings more elegance
  • Colour balance updates give a more premium feel without going away from the current brand
