LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Warner Music Group’s publishing division Warner Chappell revealed a new logo and brand identity.
The new branding follows a shakeup at the top of the prominent music publisher, which recently announced the new leadership duo of Co-Chair & CEO Guy Moot and Co-Chair & COO Carianne Marshall. Moot and Marshall stepped in for Jon Platt, who decamped for rival Sony/ATV earlier this year.
The rebrand also follows a relocation for Warner Chappell to a new, state-of-the-art U.S. headquarters in downtown Los Angeles’ Arts District.
“We’re thrilled to be opening this new era with a new look that reflects both our heritage and our future. We love our new logo, which is a tribute to our songwriters and the power, emotion, and timelessness of their craft. They’re our constant inspiration, and we’re their devoted partners, collaborators, and crusaders,” Moot and Marshall said in a press statement.
The rebrand is the first major revision for the music publisher since 1987 when Warner Bros Music acquired Chappell music publishing. Chappell was one of the first companies to shape the world of music publishing and as a corporate entity, traces its roots to Chappell & Co. in London over 200 years ago.
Today, Warner Chappell Music is home to a significant catalog that includes more than one million copyrights worldwide.
