Brand Refresh

The Canberra Raiders are a professional rugby league team that joined the NRL in 1982. With its fierce history and strong supporter base, the club prides itself on its outsider status when compared with its big city competitors.

Challenge

The previous logo was complex and dated, with a colour palette that struggled to hold up in the modern world of digital and broadcast. In the absence of a brand styleguide and due to a lack of visual strategy, the Raiders mascot was used extensively for any and every instance of communication and typography inconsistencies plagued various brand applications. Our challenge was to develop a flexible, cohesive brand system that would resonate with fans and match the energy of the club.

Solution

Inklab developed the brand identity system and strategy for the Canberra Raiders, including its professional women’s team, subbrands and mascots.

The goal of the rebrand was to create a consistent image for the organisation and to increase stakeholder engagement. We updated the colour palette and developed a custom typeface with a supporting type family for corporate and commercial use. The new brand maximises brand equity, enhancing all forms of communication, from jerseys through to digital and broadcast.
