New branding representing company's growth and transformation in the professional learning industry recognized by leading branding award

SAN FRANCISCO, March 1, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Teachscape's new branding, launched in the fall of 2011, won in the Notable category of the 2012 REBRAND 100 Global Awards. This awards program, the first and most respected recognition for repositioned brands, chose Teachscape, the leader in delivering web-based professional learning content, innovative technologies, and expert services to improve teaching practice, for its powerful new verbal and visual identity – as seen in the company's messaging, logo, website and marketing collateral.

"We are honored by this recognition. The distinctive and cohesive new look conveys the value of our service and technology offerings and reflects our commitment to and passion for supporting teachers on their journey toward teaching excellence," said Lory Pilchik, chief marketing officer of Teachscape. "Supporting teaching effectiveness has always been the cornerstone of Teachscape, so while our core mission has not changed, our new brand more clearly symbolizes our commitment to professional learning and to improving student outcomes."

The core message of "Great teachers create inspired learners" is the foundation for the new branding in which MetaDesign, a global branding and design firm, along with educators, customers, and Teachscape employees, played an active role in helping to create.  The vibrant, visual design is based on the concept "resonate" with dots progressing in scale from left to right to symbolize growth and transformation. Along with all other collateral, these visuals can be clearly seen on Teachscape's new website which features clear navigation, focused content and a clean user interface that serves to support the professional learning process.
