Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman new logo 2019

Helping you find a clear way forward - Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman launches new brand and website

Summary
The Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman launched its new brand and website today (Wednesday 12 June, 2019), aligning the organisation’s image with its purpose – to provide a fair, independent and accessible dispute resolution service for consumers and the telecommunications industry that complies with the Benchmarks for Industry-based Customer Dispute Resolution.

The new brand and logo are designed to unify the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman’s diverse stakeholder community and represent all parties in the complaint resolution process. The identity blends a number of visual concepts together: the wider community and membership; authority and strength; cooperation and inclusion; growth and evolution; and helping all parties to find a clear way forward.

The new logo embodies the sustainability and resilience of the organisation, now in its twenty-sixth year, while the earthy colour palette is reflective of the fair, independent and grounded mindset required to successfully resolve complaints.

The new website makes it easier for consumers and small businesses to make a new complaint, update an existing complaint, understand what is involved and the next steps in the process. The website will also improve the way phone and internet providers access information on complaints and online training.

“The development of this brand has been a journey of reflection: Where have we come from as an organisation? How do we want to be perceived? It’s about providing a dispute resolution service for all.”
