Striata, a global leader in Secure Electronic Customer Communication Management (SECCM) recently unveiled its brand new logo and website. "Striata has a new groove!" says Michael Wright, CEO Striata. "Last year we revisited our positioning to ensure our messages to market are still relevant. Through this exercise, we realised it was time to give our brand a 'facelift' - without losing our identity. This led to the creation of a brand new logo and great new functional website."
Striata's new groove
"We thrive on innovation and constantly adapt to the changing technology landscape and needs of our market, and we felt that updating our brand would strongly reflect this philosophy," says Wright.
Striata's new logo is more contemporary, with a slight slant forward - this represents constant innovation and forward thinking. The letters are bold and striking, which is representative of its commitment to clients in terms of delivering both proven solutions and cutting edge methodologies.
Striata's new website enables easy navigation via a slick new user interface. It has also been built around a responsive framework ensuring that it is has been optimised for all digital devices.
Wright emphasises that the main goal behind Striata's website re-vamp was to enable a great user experience with up to date relevant content. "We designed it specifically with the user in mind - this included allowing for smooth navigation across all devices."
The new Striata website is packed with valuable information and resources, including white papers, case studies, weekly updates to the blog, newsletters, demos and more... all of which are easily accessible.
eMarketing gets its own (cheeky) voice
"In addition to re-launching the main website, our eMarketing side of the business has been given its own individual character. " says Wright. "Being in the business of providing digital marketing strategy, solutions and services requires a more funky and provocative personality."
This is evident in the creative design and relaxed tone of the content, which is interspersed with comments from 'the Editor' and prompts to 'call us' or 'get in touch'.
"If Striata.com wears chinos and a blazer, the eMarketing site wears funky jeans, cool shoes and a trending printed T-shirt," says Wright.
The website will be updated regularly with fresh, informative content. Says Wright, "We encourage users to register and join our online community. This way they can receive regular, up- to-date news and valuable information directly in their inboxes - including newsletters, blog posts and new resource announcements."
Users can select the email communications they wish to receive via a preference centre to which they have instant access upon registration.
"Striata is sporting a new look, but our business approach remains the same. Trusted for more than 15 years by 300 clients in 20 countries, this is just another way we are ensuring our clients' paperless journey with us is a successful one!" concludes Wright.

Thank you for sharing your 'Insight' on the value of logo design. As a designer, I like to meet directly my clients so I can find out exactly want they want to accomplish with their logo. I've found it saves time in delivering the end result.
