In addition, it seamlessly combines standard PowerPoint slides with custom-built multimedia elements, to create an even more dynamic presentation package.

When Price Waterhouse and Coopers and Lybrand merged, they created PricewaterhouseCoopers - a global organisation of 130,000 people with offices in 157 countries. Drawing together this huge number of people and paving the way for a common direction for the new professional services firm required a vehicle - an aspiring and cohesive brand. A task force, called the ‘brand team’ was set up within PwC to manage the development of the brand and ensure it was correctly portrayed across the whole organisation.
This task force identified potential ‘weak-spots’ and agreed that they needed some ‘fail-safe’ solutions to help manage the brand identity in those areas. Presentations became a high priority area, as everyday people from all over the world were putting together their own presentations.
This meant every day people were wasting time reinventing the wheel and at the same time diluting the strength of the brand identity. The ‘Wizkit’ created for PricewaterhouseCoopers enabled every employee to create a PowerPoint presentation complete with the company logotype, symbol, colours, fonts, imagery, charts and credentials - all within minutes. What’s more, it was available in a variety of sizes - to ensure every possible need was met.
Since its inception, their WizKit has been updated a number of times to reflect the evolving PwC brand.
‘brand team’ said, 'This has been our most successful and well
received internal project’. They were also
commended by the Board
for creating a tool that truly made peoples' working lives easier
and gave a consistent application of the brand.
