After working with the stakeholders of East Hampton Public Library on both a new logo as well as a new website, they were highly recognized at last month’s Connecticut Library Association Conference. The library won both designer award categories for best website and best logo redesign at this year’s annual conference.
The library was in need of a logo mark to best represent their town history as well as the many services they offer. Our team took on the challenge of incorporating the town’s bell and ship making past, while the open pages at the bottom “does triple duty” as a book, the bottom of a bell, and ripples on the river. Ellen Paul, Library Director, spoke to the honor of receiving this award saying “This logo wouldn’t work anywhere else but here. You see it and know this is East Hampton”
Once the new brand was established, the Libby development team built a modern, welcoming, and engaging custom website. The site now showcases their events, digital resources, and collections that are both beautiful and functional on every device. In a pre-launch user test, it had been reported that 100% of respondents said that they learned about services that they didn’t know the library offers by looking through the website. The chair of the CLA publicity committee announced the award saying “not only is this the best new library website in Connecticut but we think this is the best library website in Connecticut period.”
