This would especially appeal to the younger generations and would explore an un tapped market for dell.

Dells association with large business would be maintained through careful selection of font and un altered packaging and image for business related products. By doing this dell would not affect their current target market and maintain the recognition it currently has. 6. 2 text, fonts and logo The logo and text would also be changed minimally to suit the proposed re brand. Fonts, Layout and style would all be considered for dell in giving it a modern and fresh look. The proposed changes would take dell into the new generation and sustain dells place as the leading computer manufacturer. . Conclusion: The major hurdle in the proposed re brand for dell computers would come in the risk of decreasing sales and not being able to fund the extensive commitments and production costs that the company has. This is a risk that would have to be taken into consideration. The design team would factor this in and make all the changes in image minimal as to not affect the current clients and customers. 8.
