Soccerex will go through a rebrand ahead of the 2014 Global Convention in Manchester. It has enlisted Designwerk to design the new brand, hoping for a cleaner brand with a “flexible hierarchy.”
“I am delighted with the work Designwerk have done. The rebrand has given us a cleaner, better balanced, more modern core mark that is easier use,” Designwerk Partner and Founder Cristian Cook said in a statement.
“Our strategic and creative teams developed a unique identity which is flexible and versatile across all media, and will form the basis of their marketing collateral well into the future.”
FIFA vice president Jim Boyce has confirmed his attendance to the Soccerex 2014 Global Convention in Manchester, England. He will be joined by Lord Sebastian Coe, who will be presenting in a one-on-one session giving his insights on planning major sporting events.
