Target Market & Clients
Senior adults, pastors & adult children of seniors.

Challenge
Create a new cohesive brand identity and message while keeping the original integrity of the organization.

Strategy
After a strategy session with the client, extensive research was conducted into developing a new look that incorporated the specific elements requested. It was a very collaborative process involving the client at every stage for input and approvals.

Tools Implemented
Organization visual rebrand, including logo design, brand development, multiple consultation services, print & marketing material development, and website design.

Logo Visual Study
b5The challenge was to design the logo within a specific set of parameters to preserve the integrity of the organization, which, at the time had a parent company. The client wanted a more “traditional” look to appeal to the more senior crowd while remaining professional and somewhat corporate. The incorporation of the dove carrying the olive branch represents peace and is a nod to the organization’s roots in the christian faith. The maroon color is used to symbolize sacrifice, courage and thoughtful action. The Goudy font family was chosen to solidify the traditional feel.

Other Visual Elements
A color scheme and background texture were created to carry the look through various print and online applications, including the organization’s website.
