Established in 2010 as the parent company for Orange and T-Mobile, Everything Everywhere is the UK’s largest communications company, providing mobile and fixed-broadband communications services to more than 27 million customers. Yesterday Everything Everywhere — who is making a big push to move the UK into full 4G service — announced it would rebrand as EE, a “superfast customer brand offering 4G mobile services and fixed fibre broadband, and it will open revamped EE-branded stores.” The EE consumer brand will be part of the Everything Everywhere family, along with the Orange and T-Mobile brands. EE plans to introduce 4G across 16 UK cities by the end of 2012, with 98% population coverage planned by the end of 2014. The new identity has been designed by Wolff Olins with EE.
Established in 1902, Cancer Research UK is, as its name implies, a cancer research and awareness charity in the UK. A new identity has been designed by Interbrand, the new logo “and specifically the ‘C’ symbol embodies our role and ambition — lots of smaller parts that make up the bigger picture, all coming together to disintegrate cancer, and deliver a world where cancer is no longer feared.” Info on the redesign here. Story and a few application images here.

Established in 1776, the United States is, like, a big country. With stuff. Lots of stuff. And the Corporation for Travel Promotion — now doing business as “Brand USA” — which was established in 2010 as part of the Travel Promotion Act of 2009, would like you to come visit if you don’t live here. Brand USA is the “first nationally coordinated program to market the U.S. abroad.” It is a non-profit private-public partnership with a Board of Directors, appointed by the U.S. Secretary of Commerce and its estimated $200 million marketing budget for 2012 will come from a combination of the private sector and a nominal $14 fee paid by visitors from visa waiver countries. “No U.S. taxpayer dollars” we are assured “are used to fund the efforts of Brand USA.” Yesterday, at a travel industry event in London, Brand USA made its international debut. The logo and identity have been designed by The Brand Union and an advertising campaign slated for spring 2012 will be created by JWT.
Established in 2010, Design Museum Boston (DMB) is a nonprofit organization that “envisions creative, engaging public art and design education for Boston and New England.” Without its own physical space DMB is a nomadic museum — or what they call a “decentralized network of physical and virtual exhibits” — bringing different programming and experiences to galleries, retail environments, and public spaces. Back in January — sorry, sometimes we are out of the loop on things — DMB introduced a new identity designed by Continuum and, to many people’s amusement, the design process was thoroughly documented on Core77: Here is a list of posts from nine weeks worth of work and, a highlight from week 5, here are the design concepts shown.
