Burger King Malta has unveiled its new branding after the global franchise rung in the New Year by launching its first major rebranding in 20 years.
The international fast-food chain celebrated 2021 with a new brand identity, designed by agency Jones Knowles Ritchie.
Globally, the redesign includes a new logo, packaging, restaurant merchandise, menu boards, uniforms, restaurant signage and décor, social media, digital and marketing assets. Locally, the company’s new logo has been launched, with the remaining features expected to be rolled out shortly.
Burger King’s new brand identity includes a custom serif typeface and retro colours, reminiscent of mustard and burnt orange, mimicking the organic shapes and colour-scheme of the franchise’s menu items.
