What made it special.

Discovery

During the discovery phase we had a design meeting, surveyed patrons online and on the phone to evaluate the community and determine the direction the brand should take.

Tagline Authoring

Once we established a profile of the library and traits that we felt needed to be conveyed in a simple message we authored a list of taglines for review.

Logo Iterations

Before finalizing the tagline we paired the top taglines with logos that both represented the library and the messaging that needed to be conveyed. Several rounds of these logos and pairs were evaluated and revised.

Finalizing a Brand

Once we finalized the final mark as a team with the library's committee we were able to discuss openly the final details and marks, including typography and the brand color palette. The final result was a logo and brand that makes us and the library proud!
