We started with the name and a version of their logo. The original logo was well done, but we saw room for improvement. We made some font changes and moved certain iconic elements to better highlight the name and the feel that they were trying to achieve. The goal; light and clean focus on nature. It was conceived to be something that is warm and inviting. Nothing that would feel corporate or pharmaceutical. No elements that were hard.
Through working back and forth, we both agreed to a target audience that made the most sense and a brand psychology that was more focused on healthy living than on a holistic cure. Then we “celebratized” the CEO. As a professional she had already written two books; thus it was easy for us to use her as your guide to healthy living. Through scheduling events, speaking engagements, book signings, and other happenings which we set up, we placed her in the spotlight.
Business cards were an obviously necessary element. We, as a culture, have been desensitized to business cards. We get them and automatically put them in our pockets and wait for them to run through the laundry. So we decided that the card stock had to be thicker. We went with a 19 pt rather than a traditional 14 pt or 16 pt. This initiated a tactile experience that would create a uniqueness against the countless other business cards that someone will have in their pocket, business card holder or wallet. The 19 pt also allowed us to stand-out in a stack of cards, merely because it is physically thicker and that much harder to overlook.
The last element that we wanted to make sure we achieved, funny as it may sound, is that we wanted the business card to be interactive. How can a business card be interactive? By making the back horizontal and the front vertical. This forces you to take time to focus on shifting it, causing you to literally reset your attention timer. Just one more subtle way to stand-out, and piece by piece making a simple thing like a business card genuinely unique.
“Devin is highly creative and presents a new perspective on web design. He’s a good communicator and doesn’t hesitate to try new ideas.”
I came to Gaber marketing in 2017 with a rather unusual challenge, to create a market that currently does not exist, with an extremely narrow target market of the one percent. Devin enthusiastically accepted the challenge, and over the next few months, Devin’s genius imagination created a marketing plan and strategy for me to achieve my goals. Next was website and brand, and again, Devin’s creative genius hit another home run. Everyone loves the website and logo. Creating a new market is a step by step process, it is not something that is going to happen overnight, but in the few short weeks that the website has been out, the response has been overwhelmingly positive, exceeding all my expectations. Thank you, Devin, for introducing this technological resistant soul and his work to the modern world, and look forward to all the fun on our climb to the top!
