The wide popularity of the reformed pension insurance is the result of the seamless interconnection of structural and communicative measures.

The new visual identity conveys credibility and a strong partnership – a strong union has been formed out of the very different designs of the individual insurance companies. The minimalistic corporate design is very well-accepted both internally and externally, and is especially suitable for high volumes of copies.
