The Challenge:

For the refreshed brand, the client requested bright and fresh colours. KIMBO Design gave the College choices of green for biodiversity and biology, and blue to represent water and sky. The College favoured a treatment depicting a petri dish.

It was my good fortune to find Kim’s firm, KIMBO Design, when I was tasked with finding a web designer for the College of Applied Biology. From the start, her enthusiasm for working with us, and then her sage advice to a neophyte (me) turned what appeared to be a daunting task into a creative collaboration. Her desire to meet our needs and her patience in helping us craft a complete rebranding of the organization was exactly what we needed. Her technical and design staff reflect her leadership and every one of them went the extra mile. Talented, creative and innovative are perfect descriptors for Kim!

The Strategy:

KIMBO Design created a new logo, new business cards and stationery, and a new website. The updated website needed to convey innovation. The College needed to appeal to current and prospective members, and reinforce its position of credibility amongst membership. KIMBO’s full rebrand and website update breathes new life into a brand that was previously looking tired and outdated. Additionally, the new website optimizes usability for members.

Results

The KIMBO Design team brought a more current design to the visual graphic profile. CAB’s new image increases public perception that professional biologists/members are competent, trustworthy and knowledgeable. CAB membership numbers increased by 25% in the first year of launch and participation in activities were more attended.
