Kusser Granitwerke

Break new ground with Kusser.

Rock is an ancient raw material. Yet Kusser makes something completely new from it. The granite factories build bridges between craftsmanship and engineering. We brushed the dust off the brand and sent a fascinating company forwards to break new ground.

What was it all about?

Kusser fashions granite from its own quarries into bridges, fountains and natural stone. The family-owned company, which operates internationally and also has a name as a gravel plant, is a market leader in natural stone fountains and leading innovator in prestressed granite. The aim was to combine the various existing means of communication and adapt their content for the target audience of architects and urban planners.

How did we manage it?

We released the brand’s essence and repositioned a number of aspects. Instead of a vast array of messages, there’s now a clear direction. Break new ground with Kusser. The statement serves as both a strapline and a direction of impact. Every communication measure has to flow towards it. That also means that the images and wording have taken a new route. The image world goes without colouring, with the headlines clearly communicating the products’ strengths. No stone was left unturned in the brand architecture, either. Kusser and its gravel and gravestone arms (Kusser Schotterwerke and Kusser Grabmal) are one brand visually, although in operational terms, the divisions only meet in the communication media as rarely as their target markets do.

Kusser Imagefolder Innenansicht

Strong and coarse cardboard on the outside, fine and smooth paper on the inside. As if working your way forwards – from rough work in the quarry to surgical precision in the plant. The image folder breaks new ground. It tells Kusser’s history with text, pictures and touch.

Kusser Bruecke

Black, grey, white and red. Kusser’s colour scheme is neat. We said to ourselves, the less distraction there is, the more power the essential parts gain. From our perspective, the built structures and associated messages are essential.

Good branding is like the brand’s DNA, to be found in every cell of communication.

Kusser Drucksorten

The BAU 2017 architecture, materials and systems trade fair in Munich featured the whole world of Kusser packed into about 100 m2. One step forwards and a siren rang out in visitors’ headphones, followed shortly after by a blast from the quarry. Just a few metres ahead, birds could be heard chirping.
