Coinciding with the launch of two new electric vehicles, Cadillac worked with New York design agency Mother Design to develop a new brand identity that would energize the iconic American brand and re-establish them as a leading figure in automobile technology. Roll out began in December, 2021, and continues into 2022 with updated photography, a new color palette and new typography.

Working closely with Mother Design, the Sans-Serif typeface Cadillac Gothic was developed in three widths — Narrow, Regular and Extended — all with three corresponding weights — Regular, Medium and Bold. The new bold and modern sans replaces a previous hand rendered-serif design as a gesture to Cadillac’s futuristic rebrand.

The expansive family is not only a reference to the recognisable scale of Cadillac’s design but allows for a wide set of expressions across a variety of use cases. By using variable technology both throughout the process and as a final deliverable, Colophon developed a flexible design system that Mother Design could apply across a range of touchpoints: from in-car screen displays to global campaign imagery.
