Lufthansa Systems today announced that it received a German Brand Award as “Corporate Brand of the Year 2017” yesterday evening in Berlin for its new branding. This prestigious award in the “Excellence in Branding” category, the top tier of the competition, recognizes outstanding brand management across all industries. The German Brand Award is presented by the German Design Council and the German Brand Institute to honor successful brands, consistent brand management and sustainable brand communication. The award was presented for the first time in 2016.

“The Lufthansa Systems brand has been overhauled. The realignment has also shaped the company’s identity, which embraces the enthusiasm, love and passion for the future of the airline industry and consistently reflects it in detail. An impressively successful and clean identity, with a clear, harmonious and user-friendly design, which has also made an appealing break with the typical visual language – exclusively depicting aviation technology – and for this reason alone stands out in a refreshing way. The jury considers this a great achievement, one which is not necessarily a given for subsidiary identities of this kind,” explained Andrej Kupetz, executive director of the German Design Council and chairman of the German Brand Award jury, justifying the jury’s decision.

The new Lufthansa Systems brand identity aims to improve the company’s visibility in the airline and aviation market and emotionalize the brand by using expressive, striking and unconventional images, among other things. “We not only want to win over customers with the quality of our products, we want to excite them,” said Ulrike Behrens, Head of Marketing at Lufthansa Systems, who accepted the award at the ceremony in Berlin. “Lufthansa Systems is a dynamic brand that will keep evolving in the future. It is important to us that our development to date has been recognized in this way. It makes us proud and motivates us to continue down this path in the future.”

In addition to the cross-industry award, Lufthansa Systems received a German Brand Award in Gold in the category of “Industry Excellence in Branding – IT.” The key criterion here was the company’s digital Brand Center. “With its Brand Center, Lufthansa Systems continues to move consistently toward the digital future. This makes it possible for employees and external partners alike to have an even stronger emotional experience with the brand, and it enables more open dialog about communication and design. Featuring an attractive and modern design, the Brand Center is a virtual platform with impressive visuals and content that express what constitutes the Lufthansa Systems brand and the spirit of the company. This is brand communication on an extremely high level,” the jury said.

Olivier Krueger, CEO of Lufthansa Systems, commented on the company’s brand identity, saying, “We want to make airlines the winners of the digitalization megatrend. We can’t do this by reacting to the market, only by shaping it ourselves with creativity, a wealth of ideas and passion. Our new brand conveys our creativity, our wealth of ideas and our passion. It is a tremendous honor for us that the expert jury also sees it this way.”

Only companies that were nominated by the brand scouts and expert committees of the German Brand Institute for the German Brand Award 2017 could take part in the competition.
