We developed Vornado's Brand Promise, a new strategic brand identity and retail packaging identity that changed Vornado's future. The solution came in radical simplicity and a revolutionary anti-branding information architecture. We even re-named all of Vornado's products the same name for each product category and developed a new universal tagline for each product category. Crazy simple. Insanely simple. All the air circulator products are now called 'Whole Room Air Circulator" which is the brands "unique relevant benefit". This also allowed us to position Vornado and the original--leaving the competition to imitator status. Plus, we made the package design communication ultra clear by fully explaining what an air circulator is and what it means relative to a fan with the tagline, The tagline reads, "The fan that circulates all the air." Now Vornado's brand and brand packaging is differentiated from competitors and clearly positions Vornado as the definitive category leader and innovator. It's so simple and so clear it dominates the retail shelf. Until this new brand packaging Vornado failed for years to gain space on Target's lucrative retail shelves.

With this new packaging, they not only got on the shelves but, according to Mark Zarich Director of Sales at Vornado the buyer actually said, "The packaging was the best in category." The brand packaging is selling so well Vornado has doubled their SKU's.

The package is built as a sequential graphic design structure with each panel leading to the other building one concept on the previous. The graphic blue strip on the front right edge with the cut out arrow encourages turning the package to the blue panel which explains how Vornado circulates all the air. The graphic green strip with the cut out arrow on the blue panel encourages turning the package to the green panel which explains how whole room air circulation saves energy and money and makes a room more comfortable. The graphic black strip with the cut out arrow on the green panel encourages turning the package to the black panel which list benefits. The front panel states and explains Vornado's "unique relevant benefit" while all the other panels support that assertion. It was all developed out of the 'Brand Promise" and that's what we mean when we say strategic graphic design. What we developed with and for Vornado was, "Intelligent. Superior engineering. Innovation". From this we created the new brand packaging identity which Target said was the best packaging in the category and it got Vornado on Target shelves for the first time in their long history. Relatively the same products just different brand strategy and packaging. We didn't just say they were "Intelligent. Superior engineering. Innovation" but we designed an intelligent and innovative package and branding that showed superior engineering. The contextual approach, brand strategy, logo and graphic design embody the brand promise.

We didn't just say they were "Intelligent. Superior engineering. Innovation" but we designed an intelligent and innovative package that showed superior engineering. We even re-named the products and came up with the new tagline. All the products are called 'Whole Room Air Circulator" which is their "unique relevant benefit". But what does that mean to the average consumer? The tagline "The fan that circulates all the air." explains it in one line. The package is designed sequentially, each panel leading to the other. The graphic blue strip on the front right edge with the cut out arrow encourages turning the package to the blue panel which explains how Vornado circulates all the air. The graphic green strip with the cut out arrow on the blue panel encourages turning the package to the green panel which explains how whole room air circulation saves energy and money and makes a room more comfortable. The graphic black strip with the cut out arrow on the green panel encourages turning the package to the black panel which list benefits. The front panel states and explains Vornado's "unique relevant benefit" while all the other panels support that assertion. It was all developed out of the 'Brand Promise".

1,000,000 of the same thing. Who wants that? The same old thing. A brand is special when it is unique. A unique brand that is differentiated will be noticed and will be more memorable. Consumers use a logo and brand identity to distinguish products and services. If your brand does not communicate a difference, the consumer will not see you at all or will see little reason other than price to make a purchase. Many marketers look at competitors and try to mimic the success a competitor has. When a brand is not differentiated, it will not own a unique position in the consumer’s mind. It is difficult for a copy cat brand to earn the same respect from the consumer. You can't copy brand identities because all brands are different. It is not just copying a competitor that leads to lack of differentiation. Not clearly understanding the benefits that make your brand a better choice also leads to problems. Clear differentiation is a primary reason that consumers choose a brand. Be DIFFERENT. Different is good.

What makes Larkspur different?

The rebranding of one of Wichita's historic restaurants meant changing an old "cowboy" bar and grill graphic design look to a fresh, unique and surprisingly new logo, website and brand identity. The logo is now a retro-modern stylized larkspur flower stuck by a fork. The "Bohemian" style illustration gives a simple logo image character and depth. The brand logo is anchored with historical, yet contemporary typography to fit Larkspur's bistro and bar cuisine, atmosphere and attitude. The full breadth of the brands typography is modern and historical with revamped old foundry fonts used in combinations reminiscent of the Old Town era and area that the Larkspur restaurant stands within. The logo design and brand colors are both retro and modern with a traditional brown combined with a new age cyan blue. It's bright and fresh.

The brand website is designed to instantly communicate Larkspur's brand promise with a large visual menu that illuminates Larkspur's four engagement benefits; atmosphere, great wines, delicious cuisine and a better banquet and catering experience. The website design is built around those four differentiators. They are built into the functionality and content of the Larkspur brand website architecture. A secondary menu makes available all the usual information consumers expect. The Larkspur website design uses iconography, photography, space, shape, size, color, words, interaction and movement to take the consumer through an ideal brand experience.

In creating this distinctively different logo, brand and website design look, feel and architecture fundamental differentiators were exploited. Larkspur's values and consumer touch point to experiences were defined into the brand design.Four different fonts and unique simple colors were orchestrated, combined and modified to make this new Wichita logo design distinctively different.

The River of Life Worship Center church is a Pentecostal church and community center known for the raising of hands in the worship of GOD.

The church logo is an extremely unique visual where one image can be seen as two different ideas. The logo at one look is hands raised to the Heavens reaching for GOD. With another look the logo is the Christian symbol for the Holy Spirit, a dove. Specifically within the Pentecostal beliefs the dove is associated with baptism, of which water is used. Moreover, the two images tell the story of conversion. The hands reaching to GOD become filled with the Holy Spirit, the image of the dove. The conversion, being filled with the Holy Spirit is The River of Life. The River of Life logo is an international award winning logo design that will appear in Graphis Logo 8.
