Mexico City, December 1, 2016. BMW Group presented in Mexico City the details of its new brand image for MINI represented by the design, authenticity and long-term value. At a glance, the different fonts and completely new images outstand in the newly designed logo; the core idea of redefinition is to combine clear and striking designs with an approach to the basics. The worldwide renewal strategy takes MINI to a new era and, at the same time, reinvents it to shape the spirits of the time.
The re-launch of MINI represents the most important leap in the brand's identity since 2001 with a new corporate design. This new image will be reflected in MINI dealerships in Mexico and Latin America within the next months.
"Since its creation in 1959, MINI has been recognized for its ideas, inspiration and passion. We want to continue this successful story and to have a refined brand strategy and a visually-renewed identity. The purpose of reinventing ourselves is to be more and more attached to the MINI fans ideology", said Carlos Sheridan, MINI's LATAM Regional Manager.
The motivation of Alec Issigonis, creator of MINI, is to create a small and economical urban car which would occupy few space and use the least possible amount of gasoline. The solutions to optimize space produced the unmistakable design of the original MINI. John Cooper, Issigonis' friend, recognized the vehicle's potential for roads and thus, they collaborated to create a unique dynamics between the brands focus on the basics and the driving fun. This proves the capacity of change and philosophy of the brand from the beginning in order to make room to reinterpretation, keeping always the DNA and authenticity of the brand, but allowing changes in order to face the future with avant-garde cars.
Redesigning the corporate identity serves as platform to show innovations, not only in vehicles, but also in everything related to the brand. Thus, MINI takes advantage of this moment to present the MINI Lifestyle 2016-2018 collection with more than 50 items from clothing, watches and glasses, purses, bags and daily accessories.
