KB Home Introduces New Logo That Reinforces Its Distinctive Customer-Centric Approach

New logo and “Built on Relationships” tagline emphasizes national homebuilder’s legacy of customer satisfaction and unique Built to Order approach

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 17, 2018-- KB Home (NYSE: KBH) revealed today the company’s new logo, which is grounded in its customer-focused roots and designed to engage a new generation of homebuyers. In addition to a fresh look, KB Home has adopted a new tagline that promotes the core of its differentiating business model: Built on Relationships.

Partnering with Los Angeles-based creative agency Phenomenon, KB Home leveraged their expertise and ingenuity to craft a strategic platform and narrative. This led to the development of a contemporary brand identity that reflects KB Home’s culture of innovation and customer centricity. This process resulted in a new visual expression of the KB Home homebuying experience that emphasizes choice, personalization and a simple path to building a unique home.

“KB Home has always been built on relationships – with customers, suppliers, trade contractors, land sellers, realtors, and municipalities, as well as between colleagues,” said Jeff Mezger, KB Home’s president, chief executive officer, and chairman of the board. “This evolution of our brand aligns with our heritage of offering an exceptional customer-first experience to more than 600,000 families. It’s a bold and positive new visual identity that captures the essence of who we are for today’s and future homebuyers.”

“Central to this initiative has been how best to promote KB Home’s key value proposition,” said Krish Menon, Phenomenon’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Time and again, the customers told us that they chose KB Home over other builders because they appreciated the ability to co-create their personalized home. ‘Built on Relationships’ is not simply the tagline to tell the world about their business. It is also an internal commitment to continually strengthen relationships with the buyers they serve, their wider stakeholders and with themselves.”
