Lawn Care & Maintenance Service

Turf King

Overview

CLIENT

We teamed up with McGrawesome Design to rebrand Ontario's leading lawn care & maintenance service. We developed a new identity with all kinds of branded collateral for Turf King.

Revitalizing a Cherished Lawn Care Service

Turf King has been around since 1962 and was a leader in environmental safety. There was a steadfast commitment to using the safest and most effective lawn maintenance products. In 1994 the owner passed down the business to his son, in turn he created a simple brand identity. Times have changed and now that Turf King has turned into a franchise the owners knew they needed a new fresh updated look and cohesive brand feel for the business. 

LOGO DESIGN & CUSTOM TYPOGRAPHY

Following our research, we promptly recognized that the term "Turf King" is widely employed by numerous businesses within this particular industry. To distinguish our clients' business from their rivals, three essential strategies were identified. Firstly, we opted for a distinctive approach by designing a custom typeface with substantial, bold characters, creating a visually striking impact when compared to any other "Turf" entities visible on Google. Secondly, we curated a color palette that embodies all seasons, acknowledging the year-round nature of lawn care services. Lastly, we knew that a crown needed to be included into the design.

Big and Bold

Regarding the submark, we had already decided to incorporate the crown from the primary logo. However, selecting the appropriate crown style was a crucial consideration. Our aim was to create a crown design that struck a balance between not leaning too heavily towards notions of royalty on one hand, and avoiding an overly fantastical fairytale appearance on the other. We iteratively crafted mockups, drawing inspiration from various sources, and explored numerous combinations. Ultimately, through this process, we arrived at the ideal crown design that seamlessly complemented the overall aesthetic.

Hello You Collective

Overview

CLIENT

Hello You collective desired to revamp their website to mirror their branding kit, seeking a more unified appearance and the opportunity to highlight their new podcast.

Sculpting Confidence, Crafting Futures:

Hello You Collective needed a new website because it emerged from a personal realization and a desire to address the challenges faced by individuals going through significant life changes, particularly as they approach the age of 50. Hello You Collective aims to provide support, guidance, and resources for people who are experiencing similar feelings of self-reflection, insecurity, and uncertainty associated with aging and life transitions. To effectively communicate its mission, services, and resources to its target audience, a new website was necessary. The website would serve as a platform to share information, offer solutions, and create a community that helps individuals navigate this stage of life with confidence and a sense of identity, countering stereotypes and misconceptions about aging.

LOGO DESIGN & CUSTOM TYPOGRAPHY

Hello You Collective's logo is a bold and feminine design that intentionally stands out with the prominent use of the color pink. The logo features a harmonious blend of elements that convey its unique brand identity.

Color Choice - Pink is the dominant color in the logo, symbolizing femininity, warmth, and compassion. It immediately grabs attention and establishes a strong emotional connection with the target audience. 

Branding Color Pallete: We chose soft colors, such as pastel pinks, blues, and greens, evoke feelings of comfort, warmth, and serenity. These emotions are essential for a brand focused on supporting individuals through significant life changes and self-discovery.

Bold Typography: The typography used in the logo is bold and modern. The letters are well-defined and have a strong presence, reflecting the brand's confidence and determination to help individuals embrace their changing selves.


Bold but Feminine

Brand Guidelines

Our intention was to emphasize the target audience and the website's purpose. To achieve this, we integrated the number '50' to symbolize the age group we're catering to. Additionally, we introduced a star element to signify that individuals in this age group still possess radiance and beauty. The choice of a flowing font was deliberate, as it represents the continuous flow of life. Moreover, we sought to incorporate elements reminiscent of waves on the outer design, mirroring the way life presents us with its ups and downs.

A Symbol of Empowerment

Unveiling a More Empowered Website

When the time came to create a new website for Hello You Collective, we harmoniously blended visuals, color palettes, and imagery to craft a digital environment that authentically captured the spirit and aesthetics outlined in our updated brand guidelines.

Family Mediation

Prestley Mediations

Overview

CLIENT

Former Judge Linda Prestley ventured beyond the legal field to assist families seeking mediation services, requiring the development of a complete suite of elements, including brand identity, web design, and marketing materials like business cards, starting from scratch.

Establishing a Trusted Family Mediation Service

Judge Linda Prestley sought our assistance in building her brand from the ground up. With a distinguished legal background, a Harvard degree, and a successful career as a judge, Linda decided to embark on her entrepreneurial journey. Her vision was to establish a prominent presence in the Connecticut and Massachusetts regions, where she could extend her services to families in need.

LOGO DESIGN & CUSTOM TYPOGRAPHY

Linda aimed to maintain her surname as an integral part of her brand, as "Judge Prestley" had already become associated with her in the courtroom. She sought to preserve this familiarity. We opted for a blocked typography style to convey a sense of significance, but we also desired to convey a softer aspect since Linda would be assisting families during challenging times. To achieve this, we integrated a circular element to represent balance and unity.

Regarding the color palette, we predominantly utilized shades of blue. Light blue was chosen to signify trust, while dark blue represented professionalism. We added a touch of yellow as an accent to make specific elements stand out.
