Rebranding is the creation of a new name, term, symbol, design, or a combination of them for an established brand with the intention of developing a differentiated (new) position in the mind of stakeholders, competitors and, most importantly, customers.
Rebranding a company's goals, message, and culture is hard -- many have tried and most fail. A successful campaign requires more than a revamped logo. It demands a vision that inspires customers, investors, and others to see the company in a new light.
Is Rebranding Necessary? One view is that rebranding is essential for business success; to evolve the brands so as to make sure that it keeps abreast of the competition, and meet the consumers ever changing preferences.
The other side of the coin depicts an opinion that rebranding should be avoided at all costs.
Contd... When companies fail to establish one brand, or companies whose brand had been through any kind of scandal, may go for a rebranding process.
Here, the intention is to erase the previous brand image and establish a fresh one. Some others have positive reasons; like mergers, or a company that is expanding its product line.

The overall design has a progressive feel and reflects the idea of looking into the future with hope and depicts a more dynamic and spirited outlook.
