They aim to strengthen its young, friendly, and extraordinary corporate image. At the heart of this rebranding is a change of the company's vision, mission, and position. And that's what they wanted to reflect in the new tagline and design approach.

A unique design feature — named Ji-spots — has been designed to represent Jiji's diversity in its service offerings. They also mention that such elements and the new palette best describe the main difference of their classifieds platform from online shops or marketplaces.

The refreshed Jiji brand includes a new tagline, "Because Deals Can Be Easy." It should represent the ease of using the Jiji platform in whatever service one chooses, whether it's buying, selling, hiring, renting, swapping, etc.

Anton Volyanski, Jiji Africa's Founder, says: "We have been planning the rebrand for some time. It coincides with a period of strong growth in our company and a period of unprecedented change in the way e-commerce is marketed, especially with the Post Covid wave. We have always tried to be innovative with marketing, and the evolution of our brand underpins this. We wanted a modern and adaptable style but with links to our African heritage. This is important for our clients, and so it is crucial for us."

“The new branding represents a change in our image but our goal still remains the same. The world around us is changing and so we must adapt to the changing needs. The company has a determination to never stop leading the way in innovation, personality and thought,” said Yuliy Shenfeld, Jiji Nigeria's Country Manager.” This branding reflects the immense growth we have witnessed in our company and the focus on customer centricity. We feel it’s important to let people know what Jiji stands for and our main position —We are against frustration— summarizes it all.”
