“The Future is Wide Open” for Criteo; Company Cements Transformation and Lays Out the Future of Advertising

 It’s a new day for Criteo S.A., the global technology company that provides the world’s leading Commerce Media Platform. Today, the company unveiled new branding to align with its significant transformation executed over the last year, including a new logo, visual identity and brand positioning, “The Future is Wide Open.” The rebrand marks Criteo’s commitment to supporting a fair and open internet that enables discovery, innovation and choice. It also speaks to the vast opportunity Criteo can capitalize on as it prepares for the future of advertising without cookies.

“The time is right for a new brand identity and rally cry, as we use our massive strength in data and technology to reestablish Criteo’s leadership within the advertising industry and set an optimistic tone for the future of the open internet, for everyone,” said Megan Clarken, Chief Executive Officer at Criteo.

The new logo brings the two dots previously connected at the top right of the logo to the center of the new logo to better represent consumers and its customers, who are the centerpiece of the company’s product strategy to offer the world’s leading Commerce Media Platform. The two dots now include open space, nodding to both discovery and openness as the company invites its audience in and balances a strong legacy, visualized with a bolder font, with modern capabilities. The visual changes were developed by Criteo’s marketing team, in partnership with creative and innovation agency, Technology, Humans and Taste [THAT], who consulted on the brand positioning.

“When we say, ‘The Future is Wide Open,’ we’re talking about the tremendous possibilities Criteo’s unique dataset presents for improving every consumer experience on the open internet,” said Todd Parsons, Chief Product Officer at Criteo. “Cookies might be going away, but we view it as an opportunity to evolve our product strategy to deliver greater benefits than ever to consumers and our customers.”
