Our platform symbolizes the fact that good things in life are easy to get.

Our new logo and brand identity represents this change and the world of new possibilities that comes with it.
The company’s new logo and brand identity were crafted by Alok Nanda & Company. Commenting on the launch of the new logo, Alok Nanda, CEO of Alok Nanda & Company said, “We created the brand identity and architecture system after engaging in an in-depth, strategic brand repositioning exercise with Quikr. From a design perspective, the ‘Q’ in Quikr is a designer’s dream and has been fashioned to suggest positive change in its users’ lives. The logo retains the blue and green colours for which the company is recognised and the new font is contemporary, yet sleek with a sense of speed which is integral to the name Quikr.”
