Hewlett-Packard (HP) India has launched a new identity for its brand, Compaq. The change in Compaq’s identity is in line with HP’s ongoing strategy to differentiate Compaq Presario from the company’s other brand, HP Pavilion. This will help HP to further differentiate and define Compaq while supporting two distinct brands in the consumer space.
The new Compaq logo features a combined C and Q together. The design resembles a thought bubble which signifies HP’s philosophy of being futuristic and innovative with style and elegance. The logo has also been designed in sync with HP’s vision of educating consumers to look at the PC as an empowerment tool. HP hopes to make the personal computer the third consumer durable in the home.
