According to the email we are supposed to “keep it between us for now” but I’m guessing that they won’t mind us sharing with our Madly readers.
In a bold move, Chemist Warehouse is moving beyond just advertising on radio to becoming a radio station brand.

Colour in Brand Design
Every touch point of a brand plays a vital role in brand recall, but the brand mark is the heart and soul of a brand’s image.
