VERMONT HISTORICAL SOCIETY REBRAND

The Vermont Historical Society had come to a crossroads from a brand standpoint and I was very pleased to take them through a successful rebranding process. Our objective was to maintain a visual connection to the existing brand while updating and revitalizing
brand elements.

The Brand Update process demanded a combination of investigation, strategic thinking, design excellence and project management skills.

Originally a woodcut. The old VHS logo had limitations that needed to be addressed.

The pastoral scene within the arc is complex and there are legibility issues especially at smaller sizes.

 

 

The updated logo is cleaner, simpler and makes use of the new brand architecture.

We also established new brand standards and design guidelines that clarify how to use the logo, ensuring consistency across all platforms.
