Together we go further

Allkem is one of the world's largest lithium companies, producing and developing sustainable lithium products responsibly across the globe. Allkem is projecting remarkable growth over the next decade to support the lithium-driven, global transition to a net carbon economy. The company was formed in 2021 from the merger of Galaxy Resources and Orocobre Limited.

What we did
Brand positioning & narrative
Brand Identity
Digital brand guidelines
Website design & development

Designate worked closely with the leadership teams from both companies to develop a new name, brand strategy and visual identity. The project included a comprehensive new corporate website, and dedicated digital brand hub and guidelines to launch the new entity.

The challenge

Creating a brand that combines the culture and ambitions of two geographically diverse companies is a complex task. To ensure our recommendations were relevant, we worked closely alongside multiple stakeholders from each company to understand their strengths and articulate their vision for a shared future.

Our process started with an in-depth brand audit of each company and their global competitors, paired with collaborative brand workshops, to gather insights into each company, the lithium market and the opportunities ahead. From these insights, we explored common themes, presenting a strategic direction, name and positioning narrative for the new entity, which formed the strategic blueprint for the brand moving forward.

The solution

The new name positions Allkem as a chemical pioneer, fostering connections with their stakeholders to help the world build a brighter tomorrow. This is summarised in the tagline ‘Together we go further’.

The visual identity system, and specifically the new logo, is directly representative of the connections that Allkem foster. It is designed to be flexible in application, enabling Allkem to communicate with different audiences across multiple channels in unique and interesting ways. The brand symbol can be used as a lens to highlight and amplify content, or as a holding device to combine imagery of their operations, customers and communities. Each application of the brand is a celebration of what makes Allkem unique: their people, assets and ambition to build a brighter future.

To launch the new brand, we designed and built the new Allkem corporate website. The site enables visitors to gain a comprehensive understanding of their new vision, values and purpose, alongside information about their portfolio of assets and commitments to sustainable, best-in-class operations.

Online guidelines

With more than 15 operational sites internationally, Allkem needed a standalone brand micro-site (in multiple languages) in replacement of a traditional brand guidelines document. We created a living brand hub, that provides instant access to current brand guidelines and assets, removing the need for version control and complex brand approval processes.
