Spinnup is a music distribution platform for independent artists. Enabling artists to release tracks on all the major music streaming services, track their streams, track fans and collect 100% of royalties.
The Spinnup brand had become tired and out of touch with the world in which it operated, created when the company launched. Spinnup’s messaging had become confusing with a lack of clarity on Spinnup’s service and offer.
This new identity adds vibrant colour and energy and gives room for simpler, clearer communication and content to shine: an identity that’s as creative and as diverse as its artists, with a more conversational, human character. It goes beyond the transactional and functional nature of distribution to be a richer experience, and one that is ready to grow its user base and service offer for the future.
It was created to react and adapt to the sounds of Spinnup artist’s music in real-time, to represent its artists through the changes in it's own identity.
A visual identity that is alive and moving - which will remain fresh over time.
Volume control built in, to be flexible across message and music genre.
