 A New York City based organization with a rich 15-year history is growing. Children for Children has joined forces with the Points of Light Institute, to create a new movement igniting the power of young people everywhere. Children for Children is growing to become…generationOn. The new logo design, brand property, was nationally unveiled during the National Conference on Volunteering and Service, hosted in New York. The logo design appeared on invitations, programs and news media backdrops. Previously, the new brand logo and corporate identity was featured during the NASDAQ opening bell ceremony in New York City. The logo design appeared on the NASDAQ big board and the logo design was featured on the big screen on Times Square.

 

The new generationOn brand property was created by Steve Cranford, CEO of Whisper. Cranford developed the market positioning, the property name, and the verbalized 5- and 30-second story behind the name. A Whisper team member, Tracy Holdeman, Executive Creative Director Whisper and Insight Design Communications, developed the brand logo design, brand identity and other corporate identity and graphic design elements for the new identity. The logo design will be seen all over the United States, especially in major cities like New York City, New Jersey, Boston, Washington DC, Miami, Kansas City, St. Louis, Chicago, Oklahoma City, Dallas, Denver, Atlanta, Los Angles and more.

This is what Greg Menefee, the marketing director, of JBS Swift & Company said, “It isn’t often that a graphic design or a single brand identity program can totally change perceptions of a company, its people, or products but it is safe to say that the 1855 Brand logo design, branding, website design and photography design is doing just that. Already we have secured wins in the NE United States (NY, NJ, CT, PA), Atlanta with Halperns, Tucson and Phoenix, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and a huge addition in Denver. Our new partnerships with Rastelli’s in NJ, Halperns’ in Atlanta, Out west in Vegas, Freedman / Sysco in Denver are bigger than mere industry/distribution wins. These four companies are huge players with tremendous reputations and successes in the industry - with their business the ripples from the 1855 Brand launch have become waves.”

 

We developed everything from logo design to New York bus signage to website design to retail signage and brand packaging and everything in-between. Most importantly we designed the brand identity, the strategic visual and implemented it on hundreds of items.

 

The 1855 Brand Promise:

HISTORY. EPIC EATING EXPERIENCE. PERFECTION.

 

HISTORY.

1855 Brand™ premium meats are a celebration of master butcher and company founder Gustavus F. Swift who, back in 1855, began hand selecting the world’s finest meats with an unmatched passion for excellence. The legacy of this visionary small town butcher began humbly with a $20 loan, courtesy of his father, to buy a neighbor’s prized heifer. Buoyed by his dream to deliver the freshest, safest, highest-quality meats to customers across the country, he invented and patented the first refrigerated rail car. It would become a cornerstone of the 150+ year heritage of groundbreaking G.F. Swift innovations in meat quality, safety and processing. 1855 Brand premium meats pay homage to our founder and his heritage with a premier level of quality that would make G.F. Swift proud. And while his legacy of industry firsts will never be rivaled, establishing your own legacy is what 1855 Brand premium meats are all about. After all, your legacy is the one that matters most.

 

EPIC EATING EXPERIENCE

G.F. Swift 1855 Brand™ premium meats are an epic eating experience. For those who truly know their beef and pork, this is nirvana. We start by selecting the finest cattle and hogs in the nation. Then each cut is hand selected for exquisite marbling, creating unmistakable flavor and incredible juiciness. Swift 1855 Brand premium beef and pork is then perfectly aged to ensure sublime tenderness. That’s important, because marbling and aging remain the keys to indulgent flavor and tenderness. And while our lofty quality standards set 1855 Brand premium meats apart, it is our unprecedented commitment to verifying such incomparable quality that puts our premium meats on another level. From animal selection and product quality to food safety and delivery of finished cuts, the 1855 Brand quality verification program is so exacting, even perfection gets a long look. It’s all part of delivering a consistently exceptional eating experience, every time.

 

PERFECTION

All 1855 Brand™ beef is a statement maker. That’s because we start with the biggest selection of the very best cattle in the nation, bar none - at incredible availability. It becomes even more special as we hand select and hand trim each cut, using only the highest quality upper 2/3 USDA Choice beef. We then apply the industry’'D5s most demanding quality standards for marbling and aging at every turn, and execute tight trims for higher yields. To understand just how superior 1855 Brand beef is, all it takes is one heavenly, tender and juicy bite. It all happens in a limited number of select state-of-the-art plants located in the heart of America’s cattle country. From sourcing to food safety processes to tight trims, we maintain quality control over everything.

 

The 1855 Brand launch included logo design, stationary system, website design, brand packaging, direct mail, retail hanging posters, outdoor advertising, photography design and art direction, large and small case dividers, 3’ wide case header, cap and apron, back-of-house poster and educational material, flexographic shipping packaging and all elements of graphic design.

Thanks to our Guest Blogger, Jeff Faflick, Marketing Director at Carlos O'Kelly's.

 

Inspired rebrand.

Long time regional Mexican restaurant chain Carlos O'Kelly's rebrands.

 

Carlos O'Kelly's rebranding was designed to reach a new, younger audience, changing the way, people perceived the 30 year old restaurant chain. Once Carlos O'Kelly's determined that, rebranding was necessary, the next question was how much? Would Carlos O'Kelly's, need a radical rebrand, a subtle rebrand, or somewhere in the middle? One of the, influential individuals at the forefront of this rebranding effort was Jeff Faflick., Jeff is the Marketing Director at Carlos O'Kelly's and has been in the marketing and, advertising industry for 26 years. "Our existing brand was towards the end of it's lifecycle, our vision was to captivate a new younger audience while keeping the vast majority of our current customer base intact" said Faflick. Carlos, O'Kelly's moved first to define their brand in the realm of ideas. Carlos O'Kelly's brought in Tracy, Holdeman, Executive Creative Director of Insight Design Communications. Tracy guided, them through the brand promise process. Once their brand promise was in place, Insight developed a number of logo designs and creative solutions. Eventually, Carlos O'Kelly's, focused on the "twisted pepper." Upon completion of the logo, Insight created, all the brand identity materials, including new menus for lunch, dinner and carryout, as well as, carryout bags and various store graphics. Throughout the the rebranding process, Carlos, O'Kelly's worked to develop a new set of menu items which focused on more hand, held foods and unique flavor combinations to inspire a new clientele. "Some of the dishes were not finalized until the last hour. That process of renewal will be a consistent practice at Carlos O'Kelly's". said Mr. Faflick

 

 

The brand promise boiled down to "Inspired Mex", which in the Carlos O'Kelly's vernacular means is an entire set of ideas.

 

Inspired Mex

Carlos is redefining the Mexican dining experience. We believe that those things that inspire us will inspire you, too. Think inspired food served in inspired ways by inspired people. We’ll do the searching, the finding, the refining and you can sit back and enjoy the rewards of our efforts.

Limitless

Inspired Mex is not a destination; it’s a journey. If you come along with us, we promise there will always be something new and exciting around the next bend in the road -- endless opportunities to delight. after you order it, and just the way you want it.

Fresh

We make our salsa fresh everyday. Our food is made from scratch and we oven-bake it to get the fully developed flavors of a home-cooked meal. Everything we bring to your table is made one plate at a time, just after you order it, and just the way you want it.

Quality

Quality is the result of doing a thousand little things right. The best ingredients brought together in the best possible way by people who care about what they’re doing. It is the caring that makes all the difference.

Unique

Inspired Mex is Mexican with a twist. Having a name like Carlos O’Kelly’s gives us the freedom to bring the flavors and fun of Old Mexico together in new and interesting ways. Generously sprinkled across our menu are signature items that are uniquely Carlos.

Family Owned

Our family has owned and operated Carlos O’Kelly’s all the way back to that first inspired moment in 1981. Why does it matter? Who loves something more than the creators? Who is going to care more about the restaurants’ reputation than the people who have spent 30 years cultivating it? It matters to us.

For over a century, J.P. Weigand & Sons, Inc. might be the most viewed logo in Kansas. J.P. Weigand & Sons, Inc. has been instrumental in the growth and development of residential, commercial and industrial real estate in the city of Wichita, the Wichita, KS. area, the Kansas City area and parts all over the State.

We decided immediately that the process for changing such a historically influential and important brand logo and brand identity should be a deliberate one. J.P. Weigand & Sons, Inc., with over a hundred years of equity in the name and several decades of equity in their brand logo would be best served to avoid any drastic change. But, their logo, designed in the 70's, was poorly thought out and caused readability and usage problems that at minimum needed to be fixed.

 

Before, the J.P. Weigand & Sons, Inc. logo used a clunky type for the word 'Weigand' which had little negative space around and inside the letterforms. For example the "A" became a solid blob, and the letters bled together which made it difficult to read at a distance. We opened up the letterforms in the word 'Weigand' making it much easier to read at a distance. Also, the basic oval shape was divided by a white strip that made it impossible to use against a background color. Weigand was stuck using a white background with the their logo which made their signs disappear in the marketplace. To correct this we enclosed the oval shape so the brand logo could be used with background colors. This was a simple, but important fix because it allowed for designs that use color more dramatically to differentiate Weigand’s marketing material and realtor signs from a marketplace filled with predominately white signs.

 

We also made adjustments to color and added a piece of history. We changed the bright blue to a deeper more substantial, blue befitting the regions real estate leader for over 100 years. We added the historical signature of founder J.P. Weigand, created by hand form vintage letter forms, to elevate the illustrious history of the J.P. Weigand & Sons brand.

 

All in all, the Weigand brand is now positioned more appropriately in the marketplace. It has a sense of history and emphasizes a reputation of excellence, and quality, which is a perfect fit with their brand promise.

 

The logo design, tagline and brand identity are used on corporate signage, website design, facebook, realtor signs, direct mail, brochures and collateral material, advertising, on-line marketing and more.
