The Netherlands’ largest all-round food service believes that good food should be made more sustainable, healthier and more affordable. Therefore, it makes a conscious choice for more plant-based products and it strives to prevent food waste. Albron wants to make a difference by focusing on better food for its 250,000 customers every day.
Albron works in healthcare and catering, but also operates brands and concepts including Starbucks and Anne & Max, and the restaurants at Center Parcs and the Keukenhof. As the world in which Albron operates is changing fast, it was time for a new direction. Albron was looking for a strong positioning with the right brand identity drawing on the brand essence of ‘Passionate tastemakers’.
Albron developed lots of great initiatives and we wanted to offer all of them a platform. We took the ‘Passionate tastemakers’ concept as our point of departure and developed a fitting identity that reflected the brand’s ambitions in the fields of sustainability, good nutrition and being a good employer.
Accessible visual language
By combining graphic design elements with authentic photography of their own employees and food, we created a friendly picture, at once real and realistic, that the organisation could recognise and that was accessible for its target audience.
Optimistic brand with dynamic lines
Albron wants to make healthy food accessible and to get people moving. The new logo is in line with that movement. It has brought back optimism, decisiveness and dynamism. The lines of the brand identity represent the connection between people and healthy eating, and its guiding role. The lines create a dual layer and a dynamic whole across both the photography and the design language.
