PUBLIC cements focus with a new visual identity to reflect growth of services as it continues to bring innovation to the public sector.
8 February 2022 - LONDON - PUBLIC, a leading government-focused technology company operating out of London and Berlin, today announced that it has rebranded, introducing a new visual identity to represent PUBLIC’s growth and digital transformation service offering.
The rebrand comes as PUBLIC continues to grow and adapt, now helping public sector bodies modernise, build and accelerate their digital services. PUBLIC will also continue to deliver its top-tier innovation, challenge and learning programmes providing Governments access to cutting-edge technology solutions to transform the public sector. The change consolidates the company’s full suite of services and capabilities to Digital Transformation, Innovation Programmes & Accelerators, Digital Products, Ecosystem and Digital & Innovation Training.
The launch of the new brand is part of PUBLIC’s rapid growth journey. In the last year amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, PUBLIC has doubled its headcount with a team totalling nearly 100 employees, helped found the GovTech Campus Deutschland, launched the PUBLIC School of Technology and acquired Eva Health Technologies to revolutionise primary care digital infrastructure.
The rapid expansion has further established PUBLIC’s transition into a digital transformation and innovation partner to public sector leaders, delivering projects for The Cabinet Office, Department for Culture, Media & Sport, NHSX, Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy, Ministry of Justice amongst many others.
To coincide with the rebrand, PUBLIC launches its new website and visual identity, which can be found at www.public.io. The website showcases PUBLIC's new identity and focuses on the company’s unique understanding of the start-up world, and includes a portfolio of innovation PUBLIC has delivered to transform public service models.
“When PUBLIC was founded, we hoped to create an enduring GovTech ecosystem, one that would reinvent what it means to solve public sector problems by unlocking and using innovation from the start-up world. Since then, that vision has become a reality - thousands of firms are now working with public bodies, many of them helped by PUBLIC. For PUBLIC the COVID-19 crisis forged our new path. One where we could leverage our deep sectoral expertise, knowledge and networks from across the GovTech ecosystem to create digital transformation solutions that promise long-term impact for our public sector partners. From that moment on we have embraced that this evolution of our work, digitising government, is exactly what PUBLIC was destined to do. As we evolve our offering, our new brand is intended to break through the noise and showcase how we build innovation, advancement and transformation across the public sector.”
