New Logo Commences the Launch of Hoffman’s New Brand Initiatives
Mission Viejo, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/23/2015 --Hoffman Fabrics launched its new logo today, the first change to its well-recognized logo since 1946 - over 70 years. The old logo has become iconic in the fabric industry, a recognizable and consistent value in the ever-changing world of fabric, quilting and fashion. This is only the third iteration of its brand logo since the Company was founded in 1924 as Hoffman California Woolens by its creator Rube Hoffman. Hoffman California International Fabrics is one of North America's oldest operating fabric designers and manufacturers, so the new logo is designed to represent the essence of where Hoffman has come from during 91 years in business, and where the Company is planning to go in the future.
"As a consistent innovator in the fabric industry for over 91 years, Hoffman Fabrics can lay claim to be a visionary pioneer in many facets of the business, many of which are now considered standard today. I believe the new logo lends itself more towards our DNA of design and innovation over our history. As the Hoffman Company moves into the next generation, we have recommitted ourselves to up our level of innovation and design, and to create the highest possible level of customer satisfaction resulting in preferences for Hoffman products over our competitors." said the Company's President, Tony Hoffman.
"At Hoffman, we believe our brand lives in the minds of our customers. The Hoffman brand must be viewed from the perspective of the customer's experience, and must create a clear definition that is embraced by our customers, aligned with their buying preferences and needs," said Peter Ashworth, Chief Operating Officer.
"Our new icon represents a contemporary approach, and excellence in execution, while maintaining a classic view that keeps the true essence of Hoffman culture, style and design. Our new logo represents our brand, and is an identifiable entity that makes specific promises of value – delivered to our clients and customers across multiple national and global markets, time zones and individual customer creative preferences."
