Visa Inc. has announced the launch of "Everywhere you want to be" - calling it "a multi-stakeholder communications platform that reflects our ambition to deliver universal access to Visa’s secure, reliable and convenient digital payments."
The new theme is a slight modification of an earlier Visa tagline - “It’s everywhere you want to be”. With it, Visa says it is recommitting to these ideals and vision for consumers, merchants, governments, financial institutions and employees with a unified message tailored to each audience.
We recognized that, for the first time in Visa’s 55-year history ‘everywhere’ is now within reach of ‘everyone,’” said Antonio Lucio, Visa’s chief brand officer.
“New innovations, like mobile and e-commerce, are extending the value and reach of secure Visa payments to new people and places around the world. At this important inflection point in Visa’s history, connecting to our heritage and vision was a powerful and irresistible idea.”
“We will express our vision to each of our audiences in ways that are directly meaningful to them,” Lucio said. “This platform speaks to our dedication to change how we engage with all our partners, and helps underscore the defining characteristics of our business: convenience, reliability, security and access, that together deliver Visa’s true value.”
Visa notes that, "in the 21st century, “everywhere” transcends card usage at physical locations. It’s about realizing potential and achieving dreams. “Everywhere” now is relevant for a farmer in Rwanda paying school fees on his mobile phone, a jewelry designer in California selling to a global online customer base or a government official in Brazil rebuilding a village using a Visa prepaid card."
