A new look to shout from the rooftops!

Coley Porter Bell has created a new brand identity and guidelines for global roofing company Monier, formerly known as Lafarge Roofing. A visual marque and word marque have been created to give the company a highly visible brand positioning.

Monier has been developed as the global masterbrand and will also be used to endorse various product brands (Braas, Redland, Tégula, Wierer, RuppCeramika and Cotto Coperture) in individual territories. The new identity will be used on all the company’s communication, product and estate materials including roofing tiles, advertising, brochures, uniforms, signage and merchandise. It will appear in diverse global territories from South America to South Africa, Scandinavia to Asia, Eastern and Western Europe.

The identity is a significant departure from the traditional, static visuals used in the building sector. It is emotive and positive, with energy to represent the forward thinking and visionary corporate outlook. The addition of brush strokes injects an informal tone, and the varied colour palette adds a contemporary touch. The word marque uses a specially crafted logotype to help create stand out for Monier within the building community.

Coley Porter Bell’s Creative Director Stephen Bell comments, “The building and roofing industry is very traditional in outlook, and most visual identities within the sector are functional. The new Monier identity breaks all category conventions, it brings to life the company’s vision of building better landscapes, reflecting their drive to not just provide roofs, but in doing so to improve environments.”
