Editor News Make a Comment

AUCKLAND/SYDNEY/MELBOURNE, Today: Research and insights agency TRA has announced a brand refresh, centred around the proposition The Art of Knowing People.

The new look and feel, created by Auckland brand and design agency Seachange, reflects the evolution of TRA and includes a refreshed colour palette, font, logo, tagline and a suite of new photographs and videos by Toaki Okano.

TRA MD Andrew Lewis said: “In an era where marketer’s jobs become harder and the issues they face are tougher to solve, understanding the complexity of consumers, markets and cultural trends is more critical than ever.  

“The brand’s strategic evolution underscores TRA’s commitment to seeing things differently and meaningfully challenging conventional thinking, ushering in a fresh perspective to the way research is conducted.

“We needed TRA’s refreshed look and feel to reflect our modern-day purpose, which is to help make positive change and improve people’s lives. 

“We acknowledge the need to delve deeper into the intricacies and nuances of people and how they behave. The refresh illustrates our intent to provide clarity through uncertainty and to collaborate with our clients, while not being afraid to present a new and different way of looking at things.”

“With a focus around the new tagline, The Art of Knowing People, the refresh is expressed through art and imagery that challenges people’s rational view of the world.

“It reflects the significant changes to TRA since the last brand update in 2018, including its expanded Australian footprint.”

“It also reflects the significant changes to TRA since the last brand update in 2018, including its expanded Australian footprint; doubling the size of its employee base; and the growing significance of venture studio, TRA Labs, responsible for the successful launch of start-ups Zavy and Tracksuit.

Seachange partner Tim Donaldson said: “Reflecting ‘TRA’ reveals ‘ART’, this provocation becomes the base of the brand refresh and perfectly reflects TRA’s approach to viewing the world through a unique perspective.

The brand proposition of ‘The Art of Knowing People’ is expressed through a series of curious and unexpected human behaviours; their intent is to capture the imagination, pique curiosity, and remind us all that people aren’t predictable.

“TRA dig a bit deeper to understand this, which is precisely what sets them apart from their peers.

“The refreshed brand acknowledges our commitment to the art of knowing people enabling us to uncover unique perspectives that lead to transformative solutions for our clients.”

“TRA’s brand refresh is showcased through its new website, and will be reproduced across all owned assets.”
