Shine is a national organisation supporting people affected by mental ill health. In 2019 the organisation celebrated 40 years and recognised that it was essential that Shine raised its profile within the mental health sector to be a more effective voice for people with mental health difficulties. Through a series of workshops we established that the brand needed to remain consistent with the basic elements of the existing brand, however, with a more contemporary feel. The lighthouse graphic had become synonymous with Shine, with this in mind we focused on the light beams connecting Shine with ‘lighting the way’. The beams ‘reach out’ beyond the box, just as Shine reaches out to support their clients and families. The new identity is supported by a brand book that is a reference point for the brand going forward. We continue to work closely with Shine in rolling out their deliverables.
In 2014 the town of Newbridge Co. Kildare was 200 years old. A committee was formed, and a festival was organised to celebrate the birthday. Creating a brand for Newbridge 200 was challenging and fun! The identity created encompasses all the elements surrounding the history of Newbridge, the six water droplets represent the river, their intertwining denotes the six ancient parishes coming together, the bridge is represented at the top of the insignia, the shape has a military emblem feel to it without being immediately obvious and the way in which the shape has been executed resembles a rope. The colours represent diversity. It was designed in such a way that allowed the roll-out of the brand endless possibilities. Newbridge Silverware used the logo to craft 3 beautiful pieces the ‘Newbridge 200 Collection’, consisted of a Christmas decoration, cufflinks and pendant. Finally, an artist was commissioned to design a Sentinel based on the logo, it stands proudly at Buckley’s Cross, Newbridge.
With three distinct brands OMAN wanted to cut down on costs from marketing to sales and decrease the dilution and confusion of the brands both internally and externally. It was agreed that a rebrand was required. Through the rebrand we needed to express the size, expertise, methodical planning, trust, and seamless process of moving by OBS. The mark is made up of 4 arrows representing moving and global, the mirrored curves, attention to detail and a seamless, methodical ‘move’. Storage, support and trust are communicated by the inner hexagon shape. Oman Beverly Smyth, is Ireland’s most experienced mover of businesses and organisations, including public sector bodies.
