HONG KONG, 14 DECEMBER, 2017 -- Labbrand celebrated remarkable wins last week in Hong Kong at this year's Transform Awards Asia Pacific. Its excellent work in branding was honored with 7 awards across strategy, design and naming categories.
Since the Transform Awards were first launched in the APAC region in 2014, Labbrand has consistently received top recognition. Having won 4 and 5 awards in 2014 and 2015 respectively, Labbrand 'swept the floor' with 10 award wins in 2016, including the biggest honor of the night – the Grand Prix – for its work with Thomas Cook. This year, Labbrand's robust methodologies and comprehensive offerings once again garnered 7 awards, reinforcing its leadership in the branding field.
The awards include:
GOLD award for its work with Alibaba (Fliggy), in the Best Visual Identity in the Travel, Leisure and Tourism Sector category;
GOLD award for its work with Délifrance, in the Best Naming Strategy category;
SILVER award for its work with Lifestyles Jissbon, in the Best Internal Communications during a Brand Development Project category;

BRONZE award for its work with ADEN, in the Best Brand Development Project to Reflect Changed Mission/Values/Positioning category;
BRONZE award for its work with kidsland, in the Best Visual Identity in the Retail Sector category.
"We are honored to be recognized again this year within our industry in the APAC region. Our sincerest gratitude goes out to our clients with whom we continuously work to bring out the positive power of branding," stated Vladimir Djurovic, CEO of Labbrand, “It is exciting that we are witnessing a new composition of branding in which localized branding efforts are impacting brands on a global level – rather than coexisting."
Moreover, because of the company's outstanding expertise, Labbrand was invited to judge at the 2017 Asia Pacific award. Yukino Yamamoto, Managing Director Asia at Labbrand Singapore, was confirmed as a member at the judging panel. (Labbrand was made sure not to judge the categories that it entered.)
