After five years, the visual identity of the first multilingual automotive digital platform has been renewed, and now it’s characterized by a modern and dynamic style, but still recognizable, respecting the editorial continuity of the platform that operates in 10 countries around the world.

The shape of the logo has been amended, particularly the square, which has been replaced by a circle. The ".com" now includes the flag that resembles the nationality of each edition, and the font has been redesigned, providing a contemporary element.

The new "visual identity" was unveiled today with a presentation streamed live from the Pininfarina headquarters in Cambiano (Turin), where Paolo Pininfarina, President of Pininfarina SpA; Filippo Salza, President of Automotive at Motorsport Network; and Alessandro Lago, Director of Motor1.com Italy were present. During the digital event, broadcasted simultaneously across all Motor1.com channels globally (web, Facebook, and YouTube), a making-of documentary was shown, which highlighted the behind-the-scenes of this unique collaboration. The new logo was uploaded across all of the network’s platforms within minutes of the reveal.

Paolo Pininfarina, President of Pininfarina S.p.A said: “In 90 years of history, we have designed for many prestigious corporate brands – why shouldn't we have designed the logo of an international automotive magazine? Our versatility allows us to apply our design values to the most diverse sectors: we design electric cars but also trains, yachts, buildings, experiences. In our projects, we often start from the definition of a recognizable brand identity for our partners – the design of the new Motor1 logo fits perfectly into this trend”.

John Neff, Global Editor in Chief of Motor1.com said: “There is no greater proponent of the power, importance, and influence of extraordinary design as Pininfarina. We are extremely honored that Pininfarina, which has designed the most iconic cars of the last century, has partnered with us for such an important milestone that marks a new and exciting phase for our company.”
