Sydney, Australia – Independent creative agency Now We Collide launched a new campaign unveiling digital employee experience company Azuronaut’s new name, Cocentric.

The rebranded Cocentric aims to improve the digital employee experience in order to ‘bring people and tech together to unite and connect the workplace’. It is also set to launch today across the UK, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand with a redesigned website, and digital and social media presence.

Global brands like Kerry Group, Populous, Pladis (McVitie’s, Godiva), and The White Company have already partnered with Cocentric to improve their employee communication and collaboration strategies.

In its rebranding efforts with Cocentric, Now We Collide overhauled the company identity by creating a new company wordmark, which is a play on the words collaborate, communicate, and centric.

The agency also created a new logo, style guide, and brand strategy for the company. It also refined and defined Cocentric’s core company values, mission, vision and purpose.

“Our approach to the digital employee experience is unique and our rebrand as Cocentric reflects this, clearly differentiating us from the competition. The rebrand has already been embraced by our employees and stakeholders and we’re excited to see it go live,” said Regan Collins, Cocentric’s founder and CEO.

Cocentric COO Brett Secole also comments, “Our business had evolved hugely over the last few years and the relaunch as Cocentric represents an expression of our huge growth, providing our clients, employees and wider stakeholders real clarity on our strategy moving forwards.”

On collaborating with Now We Collide for the rebranding, Rhea Hokayem-Conway, head of marketing at Cocentric said, “We reviewed a number of proposals as part of the pitch process and Now We Collide immediately stood out due to the calibre of their work, their insights led strategy and their understanding of the challenges we faced.”

She added, “Everything was very collaborative from the outset, this has enabled us to get the very best out of the partnership with them, and we’re looking forward to working closely with them in future as we continue to roll out marketing plans”

Keir Maher, CEO and managing partner at Now We Collide also said, “Cocentric is a dynamic company on the move, with a market-leading mindset and that sits perfectly with our approach. As a team we were totally aligned from day one on the challenges and where we needed to get to. It’s always a great experience to work with businesses with similar values on collaboration, embracing change, challenging conformity and our ambitions for the future. The result speaks for itself with a much clearer brand look, feel and sound.”

Kurt Toohey, creative director at Now We Collide explained, “The visual identity and brand framework firmly sets Cocentric apart in their category and gives the team a solid foundation to build on as the brand continues to evolve. Along with a new name, we developed a simple, yet strong wordmark, brand symbol, refreshed colour palette and layout system.”

Toohey added, “Animated versions of the brand symbol and wordmark were also created, with the symbol variations subtly alluding to the brands purpose to ‘unlock the best in people’, with the silhouette of a lock forming before transforming into the open ‘C’ shape.”

Prior to the collaboration with Cocentric, Now We Collide was also tapped by digital transformation firm TMX to manage its brand strategy.
