  • Any business enterprise is constantly subject outside pressure. Ever changing scenarios are perhaps the most decisive factor affecting a corporation. There are many facets to the quickened pace of modern day changes. Life-styles, legal standards, competitive practice, economic growth, corporate size, legal status and structure are just some of the areas in which rapid changes are occurring. To meet the challenge a corporation must be ready to make changes itself. It may decide to undertake a new line of business, give itself a new organisation, innovate its products, or seek new distribution channels through mergers or by horizontal integration. The price paid for these changes is often a lose of a distinct corporate identity, once clearly acknowledged by the business community. Revision of a firms visual identity often plays an essential role in the backing up a change in its choice of business strategy with considerable advantages to management for its operations in a highly competitive market. In other circumstances an improvement in product or services may also call for a revision of a firm’s visual identity. Like any other invention, a trade-mark is linked to the age in which it was created but this does not mean it is out-dated. To these firms their image is a form of accumulated capital that they are loath to dissipate. Their trade-mark is a guarantee and time works in their favour. Of course, a historically acclaimed success story is a legacy for those who possess it, whereas the future, at least in theory, is there for the pickings.
