In the competitive landscape of financial services, Wings, an Akbank offering, needed a makeover that transcended the generic. Entrusted to Pentagram, the rebrand hinges on the concept of "The Insider Edge," serving as the nexus for the new identity. The unique shapes in the letters "W" and "I" in the logo manifest this theme, further underscored by a forward-leaning angle symbolizing dynamism and ambition.
A series of repeating lines extend the logo's core angle, creating a flexible and visually consistent graphical device. In a sector often confined to conventional hues, Wings breaks the mold with a dark turquoise, steel, and ivory palette, positioning itself squarely in the premium space.
The new identity goes beyond superficial changes. It anchors Wings as a brand finely tuned to affluent lifestyles, adeptly differentiating it in a crowded market. The rebranding manifests not just in visual elements but aligns with the brand's promise of unique, premium experiences for its cardholders.
