Golin to develop Merck’s global corporate narrative

Merck, the German science and technology company, has appointed Golin to develop its corporate narrative following a competitive pitch.

The narrative will sharpen Merck’s storytelling as a science and technology company, which clearly and concisely explains who Merck is, why it exists and where it is headed.

“When we created Merck’s new visual identity a few years ago we took a very deliberate decision to break away from the ‘sea of sameness’ which characterises the industries we are present in. The same needs to be true for our narrative – we need to go beyond the expected. In Golin we believe we have found a partner who has the strategic and creative strength to help us do just that,” said Axel Loeber, Head of Corporate Branding & Strategic Communication Projects at Merck.

“Working with a company that truly wants to break the rules is as rare as hen’s teeth,” said Nick Bishop, Golin’s head of corporate. “Merck is bold, brave and totally committed to doing things differently and all of us at Golin feel very privileged to be working with them on this project.”
