Thinking Red

Passion. Power. Anger. Love.
Not Vodacom.

Wimpy. Cell C (Pre-2010). Kit Kat.
Not Vodacom.

Coca Cola. Virgin. ETV. Edgars. Kentucky Fried Chicken.
Not Vodacom.

Vodacom has suddenly been working very very hard at convincing Africa that they are now red (their new green?), using subscribers' money and all manners of Pollock splash-painting techniques.

The new Vodacom audio brand is weaker than ever before. If the new colour is RED then the audio branding had to support and enhance the new colour with fast-paced, energetic, richly resonant. The new audio brand is barely audible, nevermind memorable.

With all that money Vodacom is expected to deliver above par each time when it comes to branding and audio branding. I, for one, expected much more congruency and am deeply disappointed.

I have been a loyal and normally impressed client of Nashua Mobile for the past two years. With the exception of the minor glitch here and there Nashua Mobile's service has always been good.
