Xpand Logo Competition

6th May 2014


WHY is Xpand holding this competition?

Xpand is rebranding! This July, we plan on implementing a slick new logo across all of our marketing and branding collateral. We believe it’s important to stay closely aligned to our markets, and as they constantly evolve and “up their game” – we should too. The current logo has been in use for more than 10 years and it’s important that it reflects who and what we are today.

Sounds great, HOW do I start?

Put on your creative hats, open your sketchbook, flip open your laptop and get cracking! Xpand is a specialist Digital, Technology, Media & Communications recruitment agency currently operating in London, Singapore and 2 locations in Australia. We’re not your stereotypical recruiters; many of us have come from the industry we now recruit in. We don’t have the stale recruiter suits and ties dress code, we are casual in our appearance. We work in fun, high energy and colourful offices most commonly seen among advertising, technology start ups or digital agencies that we recruit for. For some inspiration have a look at our blog, Facebook, website and why not check some of us out on LinkedIn? Please download our full brief by clicking here.
