BUENA PARK, Calif., July 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ria Money Transfer, a leading money transfer company and subsidiary of Euronet Worldwide Inc. (EEFT), unveiled today its new visual identity following a holistic rebranding effort. The new logo and visual concept are inspired by the company’s spirit and honor its diverse customer base, workforce, and the lives touched by Ria’s expansive geographic and digital network.
Ria’s brand transformation establishes a more dynamic dialogue with its customers. Aside from a new logo and contemporary visual concept, the company has redefined its messaging scope to better connect with its diverse customer base.

Introducing the new Ria Brand
Purpose: What’s behind Ria’s drive
Ria opens ways for a better everyday life. This is the company’s purpose and driving force behind why, how, and what it does. No matter where customers are in the world, Ria gets your money to where it needs to go – quickly, simply, and affordably.
Logo: Putting our customers front and center
The new Ria logo lets customers take center stage. The “i” symbolizes the individual, with the “r” and “a” representing Ria’s support. The dot in the “i” when extrapolated from the logo serves as a standalone orange disc, an element that speaks to the connection and support customers can achieve through using Ria’s services.
The Orange Disc: Bringing the logo to life
What was once an image of an interconnected globe has been simplified to an orange disc that represents the story of each money transfer. The emphasis is no longer on the world in its entirety but on the customer’s individual world and what each person can do for herself or himself and their loved ones when given the necessary tools.
Photography and Illustrations: Communicating across borders
Ria’s new photography style is simple and powerful, effectively highlighting the message it’s looking to convey. The use of illustration also gives Ria the flexibility to connect with diverse audiences, cultures, and age groups through inclusive and emotionally compelling content.
The rebranding also comes as a response to Ria’s expanding global footprint as well as its digital product and expansion strategy.
“When you start a company, your focus is on serving customers and creating products or solutions that fit their needs,” said Juan Bianchi, CEO of Euronet’s Money Transfer Segment. “Now, after nearly 35 years in the industry, we’ve realized that Ria has become much more than just a business. It’s an idea, a community. We needed a brand identity that reflected what Ria means to people and, more importantly, what people mean to Ria.”
For Ria, the most important aspect of its business is being a part of its customers’ lives. Ultimately, this is what the new brand tries to illustrate: An orange glow working behind the scenes to make loved ones feel close and goals feel attainable.
