After his business partner retired, Seattle real-estate agent Mark wanted to create a new brand that reflected himself in a way the partnership’s brand never could. Chalkbox helped Mark create the “Home with Mark” brand, designing logo, additional branding elements, and full stationery package.
Foundation for Early Learning (FEL), a long-time client of Chalkbox (and one of our first), approached Chalkbox for a trio of brochures for three different audiences. After discussing the three brochures, which were to be largely identical, Chalkbox suggested a single, general-purpose brochure with three insert cards that could tailor it for its three audiences. This was a more cost-effective and efficient use of paper and resources, and gave them the fourth piece they weren’t even looking for—a general-purpose brochure.
Washington State Department of Early Learning, along with a number of other concerned agencies and organizations, developed a year-by-year guideline document for parents, educators, and child-care providers in Washington State. Chalkbox was tasked with making an exhaustive and detailed stack of lists and guidelines approachable in nature and easy to navigate. After much exploration, we developed a series of illustrations around trees that followed and grew as the age levels increased through the book.
Chalkbox’s new talent, Adam Taylor developed this great video for Chalkbox Creative. Thanks, Adam!
Foundation for Early Learning (FEL) was one of Chalkbox’s first clients. We worked with them each year to design and produce invitations, programs, note cards, presentation templates, and other odds and ends for their annual fundraising luncheon. Their work was infinitely instrumental in elevating early learning efforts in Washington state. The organization was the very definition of “good people doing good work,” which is the type of organization we like to work with.
Eastside Prep in Kirkland, WA, is just over a decade old, but is providing some of the finest education experiences in the United States. To share the stories of their school, its growth, students, and faculty, Chalkbox designs a biannual, 48-page, full-color magazine. Unique faculty- and student-written articles around a central theme comprise each volume, which is rounded out by a handful of repeating columns.
Fatigue Technology helps keep our aircraft in the skies. They employ a large number of engineers who, upon entry, are asked to consider the career path they feel they want to pursue. Chalkbox helped FTI develop a small career pathways print piece for those incoming engineers.
WECO (Woodside Electronics Company) has been inventing and manufacturing equipment that sorts the tasty produce of our nation’s farmers at lightning speed. They have machines to sort walnuts, tomatoes, blueberries, wine grapes, olives, cranberries, and on and on. Chalkbox has been working with WECO since 2006, developing an overarching brand system, two websites, sales and marketing collateral, equipment operations manuals, branded apparel, and more.
Fred Schoen Fiduciary Services had no coherent visual brand; no consistency of presentation across their materials and website. Chalkbox designed a new identity to present the firm with a level of credibility and seriousness required by clients seeking their services, and to reflect the firm’s 30 years of expert service in the Seattle area. The firm’s logo, stationery package, and website are the first pieces to have been developed. Learn more about why branding is so important.
