Oasis unveils 'refreshed' brand identity and ad campaign

Fashion chain Oasis has unveiled a ‘refreshed’ brand identity and new ad

move away from seasonal-led campaigns and towards a more consistent
brand-first campaign style as part of a larger strategic overhaul by the
retailer to push it into new categories and retail environments, with a
particular focus on how it navigates in digital and social spaces.

One of the biggest challenges in approaching the new brand identity,
according to Red Bee, was to celebrate the brand’s “inherent femininity
with power and conviction in a fresh, modern and relevant way.”

Red Bee has also changed up the Oasis logo, retaining its existing logoform
but tightening its application to either black or white only, to “move the
brand away from its widely-applied ‘pink’ aesthetic.” The new brand palette
also introduces cooler grey tones and a more sophisticated and modern hero
brand colour, Oasis Coral, that head of design at Red Bee, Jane Fielder, describes as
“two notches off” the brand’s previous pink.

“It felt like the right time for Oasis to revisit the overall look and
feel of the brand, ensuring that it remains fresh, modern and relevant in
today’s ever evolving market,” Oasis managing director Sarah Welsh added.

“We are passionate about delivering what is right for our customers at
the right time and absolutely want to ensure that new and existing
customers identify with the Oasis brand across all of our channels.”
