How Philips Got Brand Buzz CEO Gerard Kleisterlee introduced the Sense and Simplicity brand to warm up the Dutch conglomerate's techie image and make it more consumer-friendly. When Gerard Kleisterlee took the helm at Royal Philips Electronics in 2001 the Dutch conglomerate's vast empire spanned sectors from TVs and light bulbs to semiconductors and medical devices. But one important thing was missing: A coherent brand. For years, Philips (PHG) had focused on the different technologies behind each of its five major businesses instead of what unified them in the market.
Corporate affairs In 2004, Philips abandoned the slogan "Let's make things better" in favour of a new one:"Sense & simplicity“ ASM Lithography is a spin-off from a division of Philips. Its record division, PolyGram, was sold to Seagram in 1998 and was merged into Universal Music Group. Philips Records continues to operate as part of UMG, its name licensed from its former parent. Philips Intellectual Property and Standards, is the company's division dealing with licensing, trademark protection and patenting. Philips currently holds about 55,000 patent rights, 33,000 trademark registrations, and 49,000 design registrations.

LOGO matterS..! In the early years of the company, the representation of our name took many forms. One was an emblem formed by the initial letters of Philips &Co., and another was the word Philips printed on the glass of metal filament lamps.
Logo Cont. . . In 1898, Anton Philips used a range of postcards showing the Dutch national costumes as marketing tools. Each letter of the word Philips was printed in a row of Light bulbs as at the top of every card. In the late 1920s, the name began to take on the form that we recognize today. In 1938, the Philips shield made its first appearance. Although modified over the years, the basic design has remained constant ever since and, together with our word mark, gives us the distinctive identity we enjoy today.

Positioningthe Philips Brand Although Philips was respected for its commitment to quality, the brand was seen as 'traditional'. This was partly because Philips was an old company, having been present in some markets for more than 100 years. In 1995-96, in an attempt to rejuvenate the brand, the company launched a global campaign called 'Let's make things better', which replaced the 26 different slogans used by Philips in different markets. The objective of the campaign was also to project Philips as a company that used technology to improve people's lives. The campaign tried to convey that Philips technology, while improving people's lives, could also improve the world...
PhilipsIdentityTrademarked: In 1926 on the packaging of miniwatt radio valves, as well as on the Philigraph, an early sound recording device. The waves symbolized radio waves, while the stars represented the ether of the evening sky through which the radio waves would travel. In 1930 it was the first time that the four stars flanking the three waves were placed together in a circle. After that, the stars and waves started appearing on radios and gramophones, featuring this circle as part of their design. Gradually the use of the circle emblem was then extended to advertising materials and other products. In 1938, the Philips shield made its first appearance. Although modified over the years, the basic design has remained constant ever since and, together with the wordmark, gives Philips the distinctive identity that is still embraced today.
