CHEP Rebrand - Brambles / Principals

Graphic Design - Corporate Identity and Branding

- Winner 

CHEP is one of Australia’s quiet achievers. It does business today in 52 countries and is best known for its ubiquitous blue shipping pallets. In recent years CHEP has been scaling up by purchasing other reusable packaging companies that serve different industries to its own. We needed to find a smart way of folding these new businesses into the CHEP brand. To start thinking as one team, without losing each brand’s valuable frontline industry expertise. So we drew the many businesses together around a shared promise to customers – to help them to chase higher supply chain performance. Yet at the same time locked in the acquired industry expertise through CHEP branded industry solutions. The new identity system helps the greatly expanded CHEP family to look and act as one. A lengthy rebrand process is now well underway, to align the business and its multiple divisions to the new identity. To date the Aerospace, Automotive, Industrial and Pallecon divisions have implemented the new identity globally, with further divisions to follow
