Brand History

The history of the Czech brand originated in 1895 with bicycles. The company survived two world wars and became synonymous with quality automobiles. The current success story began in 1991 with integration into the Volkswagen Group.

Status Quo

Through its presence in over 100 countries Škoda became a player in the global auto business, one to be taken seriously. Success is essentially based on the distinct value-for-money positioning. A decision to buy Škoda has always been a predominantly rational one for car drivers who could not afford a more attractive brand or chose not to.

“Simply Clever” was the starting point for the complex rebranding process that ranged from revising the positioning all the way to developing and enacting a holistic design system. In doing so, the targeted objective was to establish Škoda in the future as an appealing and emotive brand for the whole family. We call this:

An interdisciplinary team made up of 10 members of staff at Syndicate worked for 6 months together with Škoda on-site.

Model

To ensure that absolutely no details had been forgotten we built a true-to-life model on a scale of 1:20 as the preliminary stage towards a prototype.

“We developed and constructed a ready-to-use, full-scale prototype of the new showroom for the World Dealer’s Conference in order to present the concept to all dealership partners in an impressive fashion and obtain feedback from them.”

Heiko Hinrichs 
Managing Partner, Syndicate Design AG

 

Over 5000 suggestions from Škoda dealers from all over the world were taken into consideration within the concept. Nearly 90% of the dealers evaluated the concept as good or very good.
