NPI – formerly Nicholas Publishing International – has undergone a full rebrand and redesign, which includes renaming the company’s full title to npimedia (NPI). Established in 1997, the UAE publishing company has unveiled a new name, brand identity and logo as part of a dynamic evolution to change the shape of the company, in a cultural sense as well as the outward projection of the NPI brand. NPI’s portfolio includes five editions of Concierge magazine (Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Arabic, Russian and Chinese), as well as The Dubai Mall Magazine, Rotana magazine and a portfolio of eight meetings industry magazines – meetme and meet destination guides.
“As part of our renaming, we have also rolled out a new brand identity for the company,” says Rob Nicholas, Managing Director, NPI. “For too long we have focused on elements of our portfolio and paid less attention to the umbrella under which they fall. We felt that the company needed a brand presence that is at least as strong and engaging as our core media.”
