A consistent design language is a tool to strengthen the brand, build recognition in the market and enhance product positioning. To create a coherent Product and Brand identity Pininfarina considers body lines, surfaces, colors & trim and other key elements, that might be expended to the definition of a broader IDL, supporting the client to reinforce the message, enhancing brand communication, perception and consistency.

Benefits of a consistent visual system:

  • Enhanced brand communication, perception and consistency. Shipyard’s message and image are becoming one: strong, solid, coherent. It elevates the brand positioning, avoids message confusion and empowers the simplicity of overall communication.
  • Improved product positioning. Shipyard is able to strengthen portfolio value differentiation thanks to intelligible meaningful product design. A clear and effective product positioning helps build long term competitive advantage.
  • Identified supply-chain synergies and tool-sharing. Shipyard’s is able to create manufacturing efficiency through creation of economies of scale on high-volume, common components production. Furthermore, material such as design concepts and graphic patterns developed for i.e. booth design or office space, could be re-applied across the company in multiple situations, thus increasing opportunities for cost savings.


Pininfarina supports the client to introduce the project to the market with different services like the design of booths and experiential spaces. Moreover, Pininfarina can realize photorealistic renderings and animations to be used in the marketing materials.

Possibility to leverage on Pininfarina brand and to create synergies in the organization of events.
