Akin rebrands. Refreshed, revitalised 13 March 2023

This week sees the exciting launch of a vibrant new brand for global law firm Akin – an opportunity for the Living team to help Akin reveal the very core of its brand personality.

Over nearly 80 years, Akin had grown to more than 900 lawyers around the world. But its visual identity and website no longer reflected its position as a fast-moving, progressive and innovative law firm.

Our research and strategic work informed the creative development of a new confident logo, a bold and distinctive visual identity, a set brand and tone of voice guidelines, and sub-brands for several of Akin’s LawTech solutions. Bringing the Akin brand to life, we also redesigned every aspect of the firm’s website, art directing its build in collaboration with Akin’s trusted digital partner.

Gen Y, Gen Z? It’s all about Gen You. 02 March 2023

We are proud to announce the launch of our global marketing campaign for Mazars, bringing to life their Employer Value Proposition (EVP) which focuses on how the firm offers an augmented audit experience that goes beyond spreadsheets – one that contributes to the development of sustainable businesses, economies, and societies.

Across the professional services industry, there has been increased difficulty in attracting quality talent. Mazars, a leading international firm specialising in audit, accountancy, advisory and tax services, wanted to change the negative perceptions of auditing and make it attractive for young prospects, specifically 18- to 25-year olds.

Survey says: Consumers expect a better digital experience 21 February 2023

For the second year in a row, Broadridge turned to Living to help launch its flagship report 'CX and Communications Insights', presenting the findings of an in-depth survey of 4,000+ consumers in the United States and Canada. The report sheds critical light on how companies are not sufficiently meeting the demand and expectations of consumers when it comes to a preferred digital experience.

Our client strategy team worked with Broadridge’s raw data, encompassing nearly 200 survey questions, in order to develop the key themes that would become the foundation of the 2023 report.

Data visualisation tells the story
Our design team developed a fresh digital-driven visual language for this year’s report, which would be carried across an online report experience, social media tiles and a webinar slideshow. The striking visual identity we created aligned with the firm’s new brand guidelines while bringing to life the all-important data in charts, graphs and text callouts.
