When most people think of a brand, they think of a logo. Yet the logo is just the nucleus of an entire brand experience. As you’ll see, there are many other elements to an effective brand. Our goal was to create a logo that solidly positions our brand in the state of Washington, while remaining industry-agnostic so that the logo can represent apprenticeship programs from healthcare to construction. Other design considerations included a simple color palette and a design that looks great in any size or form, from a tiny social network thumbnail to a 10-foot trade show banner.
Color is powerful when setting a mood, so we selected a palette of colors that tie the brand to the Pacific Northwest. We paired the primary blue and green with a bright set of accent colors to invoke a friendly and current feeling.
Pattern reinforces the brand colors and creates a familiar graphic element that can be used to link marketing materials. We chose a subtle hexagon pattern to represent the connection that apprenticeship makes between employers, educators, and job seekers. The honeycomb shape can also evoke the collective work of a group of individuals. By combining colors in our palette, we’ve created a range of gradient patterns that can be used to create a unified style across any medium.
