Orange has unveiled a new global brand vision and campaign to promote the company’s transformation into one of the world’s leading providers of digital communications.

"Today, just 14 years later, the brand now spans a range of technologies (internet, T.V content) and reaches consumers in 26 countries, covering very different cultures. Thanks to its global enterprise services, Orange also has operations in most markets around the world.”
She added, “Since 2006 it has been the key brand of the France Telecom Group and now includes mobile, internet and TV services plus content associated with these three platforms.
“Despite this change, the brand has lost none of its strength, staying true to its original values which have become the values of the whole Group. The new brand vision allows us to truly communicate everything that Orange now stands for".
