‘Loyalty Knot’: The Unbreakable Bond Between Brands and Customers
Leo Burnett Oslo creates new visual identity for Scandinavian award
Posten – Bring’s “The Loyalty Knot,” GPC Rating: 7
The Loyalty Award is awarded annually by Bring, a direct mail and logistics company, to a Scandinavian brand that has cultivated a deep relationship with its customers and core audience through phenomenal targeted marketing. To give this award a meaningful visual identity, Kitchen Oslo, a member of the Leo Burnett family, created a unique logo to illustrate the unbreakable bond between a brand and its most ardent advocates: a loyalty knot.
Inventing a new knot was an ambitious challenge, considering the vast amount of existing knots. However, the agency rose to the challenge and tapped the skills of a master knot-maker to design the new knot, which was then used to craft the visual identity and logo around this award. The knot symbolizes the strong tie between two pieces of rope — the brand and the customer.
The GPC deemed “Loyalty Knot” a smart and thoughtful idea, as it communicates its concept at first glance. With exquisite craftsmanship, the agency found a way to celebrate a Scandinavian relationship built on togetherness, strength and loyalty.
