Brand & Editorial Style Guides
To assist your team in maintaining and growing your library’s new identity, we develop and print two different guides.
The first, a brand book for online and print media, will help maintain brand consistency as you tell your story to new and existing audiences.
And second, an editorial style guide, will provide all staff with a consistent set of “house rules” to use when writing library communications of all kinds, from Facebook posts to grant applications.
We will help your team develop a list of items that need to be rebranded, as well as any new items that haven’t been ordered before. New artwork is designed for these items and we guide you through the ordering process.
For items such as stationery, posters, and handouts, dynamic templates are designed using Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and Adobe InDesign so that your team can use and maintain these templates moving forward.
A key part of discovery, no matter the size of the branding project, are surveys and market research.
Through surveys of both patrons and staff, a series of interviews with key staff members, and research about your local area and demographics we form a clear picture of the status of the current brand, public opinion, staff needs, strategic goals, and a vision for the future.
All of these items are used to create a purpose-driven brand.
