Black & Decker becomes Black + Decker
The new identity, which will be rolled out internationally, was developed by Lippincott.
Lippincott was appointed to the job last year, having previously rebranded Black + Decker's sister brand Stanley.
The consultancy says it aimed to focus on "less design - ensuring that everything from the logo, to the packaging and even the hand vacs and power tools were less embellished and the focus was on the substance of the actual products".
Lippincott says he aimed for the brand to feel "quintessentially human, to reflect Black + Decker's ability to turn a daunting task into a sense of accomplishment."
He also wanted to create a brand that was "multifaceted enough to form a cohesive end-to-end customer journey."
The new identity sees the logo's color palette reduced to just black and orange, with a plus sign replacing the previous ampersand.
Lippincott says the identity is designed to be "simple, clean and strong."
The rounded grip is intended to evoke the boards of previous Black + Decker products.
Packaging and product branding have also been streamlined to use a two-color system.
Lippincott says he worked with Black + Decker employees, customers and other stakeholders to develop a brand proposition based on "people power."
Black + Decker says it will build on the rebrand with new products and marketing campaigns aimed at further modernizing the brand.
