• Rebranding of Connecticut, the leading Italian factory of interior doors established in 1955. 
     
    The firm was the first company worldwide to manufacture synthetic resin and PVC interior doors, which were absolutely revolutionary for the times. Thanks to their characteristics and cost-effectiveness, these doors immediately became the ideal products for all civil and industrial purposes and for community facilities. From the 60's to date Connecticut has widened its range to include new door materials - PVC, aluminum and steel - and styles, covering all kinds of esthetic and functional requirements in every sector.
     
    The rebranding process, which started in middle 2011, include the design of a new logo and corporate identity along with the art direction of catalogues and website.
