Name change
From:
psps consultants
export & investment services

To:
psps business abroad
international business development

We have used psps for 20 years, the addition 'consultants' is not always regarded positive in some countries. We want more immediate understanding of what it is we do.

IMPORTANT: WE ARE CHANGING THE LOGO BECAUSE WE ARE CHANGING THE NAME, NOT BECAUSE WE ARE UNHAPPY WITH WHAT WE CURRENTLY HAVE. WE LIKE THE LABYRINT AS A VISUAL METAPHOR FOR OUR WORK; IN ITS CURRENT FORM HOWEVER- WITH A "C" IN THE CENTRE - IT DOES NOT MATCH WITH OUR NEW NAME. THAT SAID, WE DO NOT SEE ADDED VALUE IN EMPHASIZING THE PSPS PART OF OUR NAME IN A VISUAL, AS THIS DOES NOT ADD MEANING/EXPRESSIVENESS TO THE LOGO AND WHAT IT IS WE DO. PLS. UNDERSTAND THAT THE LACK OF EXPRESSIVENESS IN OUR CURRENT NAME IS AN IMPORTANT REASON TO CHANGE IT IN THE FIRST PLACE. SMART SOLUTIONS TO ADAPT AND UPDATE OUR CURRENT LOGO ARE THEREFORE ALSO VERY WELCOME!

Our demands/expectations
The current colours are e02d29 rood, 6c6d6c grijs. We would like to stick to those colours.
We like the combination of word and image logo components. We like the idea of being able to use these components separately.
The image logo (the square or whatever it will turn into) should be recognizable from a distance. We should be able to use it even in small versions (i.e. business cards).
We would like to stick to lower case lettertype
We do not prefer the use of gradients
Would be preferable if the logo can be used on a white as well as a black background
Pls. do not use stock vectors
Pls. be aware that small adjustments are also welcome. In the current image logo (the square) there is a "C" in the middle, which referred to consultants; this is not relevant anymore in the new name.





Bedrijfsomschrijving:

Briefing is in het Engels, correspondentie kan vanzelfsprekend in het Nederlands

Who are we?
psps develops international sales- and distribution networks, for Dutch and foreign SME’s. Our geographical focus is on the UK, Benelux, DACH region and US. Our customer base comprises of private companies as well as public trade- and investment promotion organizations. Our investment services: numerous business development trips since we started in 1999, created an extensive CRM database, helping us to identify Dutch investors (FDI), in commission of foreign regions and countries.

Our 'why"
Success on international markets is all about building meaningful, long lasting human relationships. Understanding how cultures and markets differ, helps us to gain people’s trust. In doing so, short term business results convert into long term success on international markets. This is our clear commitment, to Dutch and international customers, public as well as corporate.

Our pay-off
BUSINESS ABROAD: GET CONNECTED, GAIN TRUST, GENERATE REVENUE

Doelgroep:

We work for individual Dutch and foreign companies, as well as for public organizations in the fields of trade and investment promotion. As an example: we have been preferred supplier for RVO (Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland, also called Netherlands Enterprise Agency), organizing trade missions on their behalf. We work for similar organizations abroad. Our target groups are therefore not only Dutch but international.

Kleuren, favoriete logo's, must haves

Pls. also see briefing above. We like the use of lines versus gradients, lettertype lower case. We also like the fact that our image logo adds a certain meaning to the logo. It was meant as a labyrint, assisting organizations and companies to find their way. The "c" in the centre referred to consultants; that is not relevant anymore in the new name. We were fond of the image logo as such. Be careful, that use of forms and colors can mean different things in different countries.
