Singapore-based startup partners award-winning creative agency &Larry to launch new brandmark and “Time to Own It” tagline
SINGAPORE, Nov. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Atome, a leading “buy now pay later” technology company headquartered in Singapore, has partnered with award-winning creative design agency &Larry to relaunch its new brand identity, which consists of a new brandmark, colour and tagline. The brandmark represents the company’s core pillars of Aspirations, Access and Advice while also playing on themes such as ‘rising above’, ‘positivity’ and ‘openness’. Atome’s new brand colour is a bright yellow-green hue called ‘Spriteburst’ and its new tagline is “Time To Own It”.
Mi Li, Chief Marketing Officer at Atome, said: “We started this project by asking ourselves what we wanted our brand to truly represent for our growing number of Gen Z and millennial users and retail partners. What followed was an intense months-long project working with &Larry’s talented team to distill our brand essence of ‘creating smarter access to your aspirations’. Atome’s new brand identity captures this perfectly. Our new tagline, ‘Time to Own It’, also plays on the core concept of time; in how Atome helps people to pay and afford products and services over time. At a deeper level, it’s also an immediate call to action for consumers to own their deepest passions and aspirations.”
Larry Peh, founder of &Larry and winner of the prestigious President’s Design Award in 2014, said: “Working with a truly innovative technology company like Atome is always exciting. Not only is the Atome team building a phenomenal service that empowers both users and retail partners, but they also care deeply about the brand. From a creative standpoint, this was a challenging but fulfilling project in which we helped to clarify the three pillars of ‘aspirations, access, and advice’ and encapsulate it visually in a modern, unique and refreshing way. We’re confident this new brand identity will help Atome gain recognition as a leading retail and lifestyle brand both in Singapore and across Asia Pacific. We are incredibly humbled to have contributed to this journey.”
Atome’s rebrand coincides with the launch of its “Own the Moment” integrated marketing campaign across social media, mobile, video, in-store and out-of-home channels. The four-month campaign will engage consumers with various activations during the holiday season up until Chinese New Year 2021.
