With 'Bayerische Motoren Werke', Serviceplan and BMW create a bold new brand appearance to accompany the model offensive of the automotive manufacturer in the luxury segment.
Munich, 08. September 2017 – With 'Bayerische Motoren Werke', Serviceplan invented a new identity for the luxury segment of BMW. The new appearance will be presented for the first time at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt (14 - 24 September 2017).
The unique new naming and communication branding is true for all upcoming luxury automobiles of the brand, and the high end services offered to their customers. Conceived by Serviceplan Campaign International in partnership with BMW as a long-term branding strategy symbolising a statement of luxury and prestige. 'Bayerische Motoren Werke' represents the paramount quality of the brands high end series.
'Bayerische Motoren Werke' sharpens the profile and positioning of the most exclusive vehicles in the portfolio as an independent product category. In addition to the BMW 7 Series, the new BMW 8 Series, the new BMW X7 will also be part of the extensively extended model family for the luxury segment. The joint identity and attitude of the top models is reflected in a redesigned signet.
