Alamy unveils rebrand as it strengthens offering to the creative sector
Press Release 20 October 2021: London, UK
Alamy, the world’s most inclusive content platform, has unveiled a striking new visual identity as it strengthens its offering to the creative sector.
The new brand, developed in partnership with creative agency Phantom, reflects Alamy’s focus on the infinite and diverse opportunities that the ‘blank page’ can have for creatives. It follows significant growth in 2021 for Alamy among TV & film, and advertising & design clients.
Alamy’s collection offers unrivalled inspiration for a growing customer base which includes Netflix, Ogilvy and Red Bull – it is unedited, uncurated and drawn from more than 100,000 content creators from every country in the world.
The platform has also launched strategic partnerships with commercial content agencies EyeEm and Africa Studio, increasing its creative collection to more than 80 million images.
Services for the creative sector now include commercial rights clearance, consultation on briefs, on-request access to the diverse contributor base, and bespoke picture research.
The Alamy platform – alamy.com – also has a new look, ahead of major redevelopment work in 2022.
All rebranded assets for use across media materials from now on, can be found HERE.
On social media, the existing @Alamy channels will be joined by Alamy_Editorial – the new home for live coverage from more than 70 global news photo agencies.
These moves follow the 2020 acquisition of Alamy by PA Media Group and continue the wider investment from the Group in to the Alamy platform.
