Let go of 2,500 management positions – including beloved Frank & Gordon. Now, the new brand has been launched with a simple and clean looking logo and website.
The site itself is easier to navigate through and very intuitive. The images are clean, some links still lead to the old site with the old logos and info but regardless… it is a sexier site. Bring Bell up to the web 2.0 era. You might have seen a bunch a teaser advertising over the past couple weeks that only indicated a “er”… well this new strategy was created by agency Zulu Alpha Kilo,Leo Burnett, Ig2, and Cossette Communication Group with the goal to create “Bell-ements”. The tagline is “Today just got Better”.

It’s a straightforward and customer-focused brand that directly supports the Bell team’s goal: To be recognized by customers as Canada’s leading communications company.”
