Deanta Has Rebranded!

Posted on: February 18, 2016 by kylie@deanta

We at Deanta are excited to announce the launch of our company-wide rebrand. We haven’t changed our name, Deanta – which means fully-fledged or complete in Gaelic – because it very much reflects who we are as a company, and our Irish origins. However, we have changed a lot of other things.

Our focus has always been on adapting to the ever-changing nature of the publishing industry, and to be innovative and forward-thinking at all times. We felt that it was time to refresh our branding and business model to reflect where we are as a business, and what we are all about.
