After 70 years as the East Midland's local motoring family, Sandicliffe have re-designed their logo whilst keeping their brand identity.
Dec 18, 2017
Sandicliffe are a widely renowned name and influential business within the East Midlands and automotive industry. Established since 1948 and awarded the Royal Warrant in 1974 from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, for supply and maintenance of vehicles to the Royal family. Still a proud family owned organisation, Sandicliffe take pride in their firmly established brand identity and values that it stands for.
Since Richard Hobbs was appointed as MD at the beginning of 2017, he has put more emphasis on digital marketing, moving away from outsourcing and building on a 10-strong inhouse digital team able to be focussed purely on Sandicliffe.
Comments from Head of Digital, Joshua Hunt:
‘Since the beginning of the year the company has seen the start of some game changing projects that are under development from our digital team. As we expand our focus, it is important that not only is our online presence consistent, but that we retain the same consistent brand identity offline too.
A major step in this transition was to update and modernise the Sandicliffe logo without losing any of its visual heritage or brand identity. Customers recognise the Sandicliffe logo as a long standing, trustworthy automotive icon in the Midlands and we didn’t want to lose that.
Looking back over the years it is clear to see the logo’s slight evolution into a thicker font with closer letter spacing, then eventually the addition of the car shape at the top of the wording leading to the logo you see today.
During the process of reviewing and then creating the new logo designs, it became clear that a substantial change and going for a very different look would take us too far away from the established identity that had taken so long to build.

The final version that we have created is a thinner variation of the original font with more refined rounder curves. This is not a dissimilar treatment that Google adopted when updating their logo. Each letter was precisely positioned with letter spacing and shape reductions that worked well when the logo was enlarged for use on billboards & big screens, but also geared to look good when reduced for business cards or social media.
To add the finishing touch, subtle changes were made to the colour from the original palette.

Sandicliffe aim to roll out the new 2017 logo across all online and offline platforms over the upcoming weeks ready for the new year, on the build up to Sandicliffe’s 70th anniversary.
