A long-standing client; we’ve worked with Heineken over many years to deliver various branding programmes, including a rebrand and to support their sponsorship programmes.
When the iconic green bottle became central to Heineken’s design approach, their European fleet of vehicles was one of the most prominent items to be rebranded. With an extensive distribution network, comprising a wide variety of vehicles types and sizes, this was quite a challenge.
We were appointed as their branding partner, to centrally co-ordinate the rewrapping of their European fleet. Through our local network, we used the latest digital technology and latest generation UV curable inks to reduce environmental impact.
Having become very familiar with the Heineken brand over the years, we continue to advise, develop and support the rollout of their fleet branding across new and replacement vehicles in Europe.
Heineken was an official sponsor to the UEFA Champions League and we have helped to brand their event villages and to temporarily rebrand their fleet in sports livery.
Branding solutions in support of sponsorships or events is all about speed – a fast turnaround to make sure you make the most of the short ‘window of opportunity’. We used specialist graphics that can be removed easily and act swiftly, using our on-the-ground network to deliver quickly.
As football mania reaches fever pitch, Heineken is ready at the airport to greet and transport their VIPs and guests to the Cup Final in true style, using fully branded luxury coaches.
In Berlin we designed and delivered 20+ coaches, 8+ mini buses and 40+ Trabants.
We also helped Heineken to paint the town “Heineken green” for the final in Lisbon, Portugal.
From the airports to the city centre, we produced and installed various branded banners and signage graphics, as well as branding the Tuk Tuk taxis to carry supporters around the city.
To roll out the strategic rebrand for Airbus, with a focus on signage and wayfinding, at 118 sites, across 26 countries in five continents.
THE AIRBUS GROUP
Airbus is a global leader in aeronautics, space and related services, offering the most comprehensive range of passenger airliners. It is also a European leader in tanker, combat, transport and mission aircraft, as well as one of the world’s leading space companies. In helicopters, they provide civil and military rotorcraft solutions worldwide.
'When facing a rebrand of this scale, it is often difficult to bring together the right team internally to make it happen within the timescale required. By working with GLIMMA, we were able to efficiently rollout the new signage and wayfinding branding globally. The central team brought technical knowledge and expertise. By using their extensive global network we were able to ensure that the work was completed on time and within or below budget, leaving us to get on with our day jobs.'
UTILISING LOCAL POWER
With carbon footprint front of mind in this rebrand, we adopted a sustainable approach, opting for local production to minimise transportation costs and environmental impact.
We started by technically translating their brand guidelines, to ensure the designs and renders could be used for local tender – reducing time, manufacturing and shipping costs.
Following the success of the rebrand, we continued to work with Airbus on the rebrand of 60+ Helicopter service centres across 17 countries, this time focussing on illuminated signage solutions too.
FLEXIBLE PROJECT MANAGEMENT
Using a flexible timeline, we adopted a phased approach, working with the Airbus branding and facility management teams to identify priority sites and ensure minimum disruption to day to day operations.

STORE CONCEPT– “Life is Better with Friends and Ice Cream”
With a concept routed in the simple enjoyment we experience when eating an ice cream, instilled with memories of childhood, and the excitement and joy of the discovery of something new, Cream Bell ”CreamLand” provides a space where you can re-engage with that childlike wonder and discover the many flavours of Cream Bell.
Taking cues from the wave of experiential venues and the rise of gamification in the retail playground along with the ‘on trend’ design styling from the latest contemporary sweet treat retailers, the interior offers a sense of fun and curiosity with a bright internal palette, coupled with simple ‘soft’ and oversized forms to create a moment of childlike escapism balanced with a contemporary edge.
The interior palette was inspired by the colours and textures of the desserts themselves, the softer forms, the vibrant tones tempered by hues of vanilla and creams, with warm tones of the waffle, its regimented pattern rolled or fractured in to shards.
