Stingray unveils a new visual identity and launches a new version of its mobile app

Stingray, the worldwide leading provider of multiplatform music services for multi-channel television service suppliers, unveiled its new brand identity and logo illustrating all the services it offers across 113 countries. This launch will allow the dynamic Montreal-based company to regroup all their services under the new unified brand – an initiative that will grant them better international visibility. This new branding coincides with the launch of the all new Stingray Music mobile app, which gives users on-the-go access to the best music for every moment, place and mood in their lives. For the first time ever, all Canadians with access to Stingray Music (formerly Galaxie) channels on their televisions will be able to use the interactive Stingray Music app free of charge by identifying themselves using brand new audio imprinting technology, a worldwide first.

Stingray Music: The best music for every moment, place and mood in your life

In collaboration with the SidLee Agency, Stingray reviewed its vision, mission, and the guiding principles of their brand identity, and today proposes a modified logo, faithful to its mission, and brandishing new colours. The logo, representing two superimposed rays, projects the energetic and contemporary sense of the company, and the dynamic nature of their range of services.

From now on all of the company’s services will be grouped under a common name, Stingray: Stingray Music, Stingray Concerts, Stingray Music Videos, Stingray Karaoke, Stingray Ambiance, and Stingray Business. This rebranding will also take place across all Stingray platforms in order to capture the simple, approachable, user-friendly, energetic, and cool experience the brand offers.

“It has been seven years since Stingray was founded, and over the course of those years several strategic acquisitions have come our way. As such, we have an extremely coherent portfolio in terms of experience and quality, so it seemed natural that we should offer our clients all our services under a single brand that speaks to them. We expect to speed up development of innovative products to allow our clients to have the best music with them at all times,” stated √Čric Boyko, President and CEO of Stingray.

Over the next six months several of the brand’s new visual elements will gradually be implemented and unveiled in order to add new energy, and to reflect its values across all platforms. As of October 1, you can visit the new website at www.stingray.com to check out the Stingray Music mobile app’s new look.
