A bold beacon of trust and forward momentum

Uber as a global brand is ubiquitous with disruption and innovation, both largely seen as qualities that represent trust and drive massive brand awareness.

However, within the Japanese market Uber faced a more competitive context to overcome.

Known primarily for its UberEats delivery service, the e-hail service of Uber required a significant brand awareness uplift to encourage trial.

With the practise of hailing a street cab still the primary method of transport, a growing fleet of E-hailable commercial options, and some legacy caution about the original ride-share experience, Uber Japan required a branded solution that would deliver high impact and increased consideration through its primary visual asset – its vehicle fleet.

Utilising the distinctive brand assets of its global “Chevron” and brandmark, this design solution needed to;

  • Increase representation of Uber’s Masterbrand visual assets
  • Generate multi-vehicle cohesion
  • Integration of local taxi partner profile
  • Overcome the legacy rideshare concerns, in favour of the new local partnership model
  • Represent Uber as a software/convenience platform, rather than the former ride-share program

The end design solution is a bold, impactful demonstration of the Chevron, acting as a beacon of trust and forward movement – displayed prominently on each Japanese Uber fleet vehicle, balanced with the trust delivered from the local taxi partnership.
