Salt Branding Creates New Identity For IHS Markit

SAN FRANCISCO, July 14, 2016

Leading full-service branding agency Salt Branding (Salt) has created the new identity for IHS Markit Ltd., branding the merger of IHS and Markit to create a new global leader in critical information, analytics and solutions.

Salt partnered with the corporate marketing teams from IHS and Markit to create the brand strategy, positioning narrative, the new corporate logo and identity system, the launch website and video and other key go-to-market applications.

“IHS Markit thinks about the world in a unique way,” said Paul Parkin, one of Salt’s Founding Partners and Creative Director. “They reveal interdependencies across complex industries to understand why things happen. We branded this The New Intelligence, and the new identity communicates their ability to look across industries and help their customers focus on key issues.”

Jane Okun Bomba, executive vice president and chief administrative officer for IHS Markit, commented, “IHS Markit helps customers improve decision-making and increase operational efficiency. We do this by leveraging technology to provide the highest quality information, analytics and solutions for major industries and markets that drive the global economy – we’re calling this The New Intelligence. Our new identity so well reflects what this merger represents – the creation of an Information Powerhouse.”
