Industry super fund CareSuper has launched its new brand identity, developed by brand consultancy PUSH Collective.
It is the first significant brand work in over 10 years for the 240,000-member fund and it reflects CareSuper’s ongoing success and pipeline of innovations.
The project by PUSH has involved market research, brand strategy, and a new visual, verbal and sonic identity, informing a broad range of touch points for members, employers and the financial community.
“CareSuper is an industry super fund. It is not aligned with one particular industry, but has established a strong foothold across many sectors with professionally-minded people who want to set themselves up for the future. We’ve evolved its brand to connect better with these professionals – savvy, busy, and with a progressive outlook on life,” said Erminio Putignano, managing director of PUSH Collective.
“The idea at the core of the brand is fitness – being fit for success. It applies to CareSuper as a high-performing fund thanks to its capabilities and approach to investment. It also reflects the mindset of its main member base, and how they pursue success in their careers and lives. We want to tell a story that focuses on the importance of being enterprising, adaptable and resilient in order to succeed in a world full of uncertainty,” Putignano said.
To develop the new identity, PUSH engaged renowned fashion photographer Cameron Grayson, who has created a series of portraits of CareSuper’s members that defy the common stylistic cues of the category. The photographic work has also involved Giaan Rooney, CareSuper’s brand ambassador, whose role is being recast to reflect the new brand strategy and her own remarkable personal and professional journey.
CareSuper’s executive manager – marketing and brand Strategy, Peter Theodorakopoulos, said that the fund has had a long record of outperformance and grown significantly since the last time the brand was evolved. “CareSuper has performed well during all types of market conditions, including the GFC that interrupted the entire super industry and has delivered strong returns ever since. As a result, more and more people have chosen us. Funds under management have quadrupled to $15 billion.”
“Our evolved brand reflects our commitment to members and passion for performance. The changes in the brand go hand in hand with major upgrades to our service and support for members,” Theodorakopoulos said.
The new brand identity is in the process of being rolled out. CareSuper’s redesigned website has just gone live, together with new communications for members. Later this year, a series of marketing initiatives will be released.
