Guinness World Records


Repositioning and rebranding iconic global brand for the digital age
New branding and position
Global research study

How do you refresh an iconic brand, extend its lines of business, and deliver shareholder value?

Guinness World Records wanted to explore and implement a global redesign, to refresh and create a modern identity in the minds of consumers, investors and competitors.
KI undertook large scale research in UK, Germany, USA and Japan. This initial phase of the project identified that there was clearly the opportunity to grow the brand and deeply engage many more consumers.

Armed with our insights we rebuilt the brand as a trans-media proposition, joining online, live, TV, publishing, Adjudication and B2B. KI redeveloped all branding and positioning, delivering a digital style guide and toolkit that ensured global alignment for the brand - even when activated in these very new lines of business. Our "Officially Amazing" tag line describes the very core of the brand.
