Legrand is a listed company in France and one of the important contributors to CAC index.
LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
In 2005, Legrand acquired 100% of TCL’s wiring device services in China and started to market its wiring devices under 3 different brands: TCL, Legrand, and TCL-Legrand. One of the most important objectives for Legrand is to build up its own brand equity in the market for sustainable growth.
SMART INTEGRATION FOR YOU
We approached this project by looking into Legrand’s key target audience to understand their perception toward the brand. Based on consumer research, a new and clearer brand architecture was created. The second step of achieving Legrand’s goal was to start building its own distinctive assets to support its brand positioning. After research and planning, we developed the key brand positioning concept for Legrand in China – “Smart Integration for You”. Based on this unique positioning, we have subsequently created tagline and visual elements to reflect Legrand’s brand equity.
BUILDING THE WINNING BRAND ARCHITECTURE
A clear and sustainable brand architecture strategy that answers the main objective of Legrand has been built by Labbrand. Legrand is fully committed to the change and launches TVC, print, and online marketing campaigns across China. Meanwhile, Labbrand also provided a communication plan to ensure a smooth transition.
The outcome of building this brand architecture strategy for Legrand helped Labbrand win GOLD at Transform Awards APAC 2014.
