In the ever-evolving landscape of career development, a strong online presence is essential. Recently, I had the opportunity to collaborate with Career Pursuit, a new platform dedicated to empowering military and veteran spouses on their professional journeys.
Before diving into the design process, I spent time understanding and researching Career Pursuit’s existing brand. Their commitment to providing top-notch career resources, guidance, and opportunities would become the foundation for any creative designs.
With a clear understanding of the platform’s goals and user needs, together, we explored the first phase – the logo. Inspired by a contemporary feel, I wanted to convey the sense of progress, growth, and achievement. The logo, the cornerstone of any brand, is a sleek and modern emblem created digitally by hand to wrap the initials C and P into an icon that could be used throughout the brand.
Colour plays a crucial role in shaping brand identity. After careful consideration, we opted for a palette that blended professionalism with approachability. Deep blues conveyed trust and stability, while vibrant greens injected a sense of freshness and growth. The combination aimed to evoke a feeling of confidence and positivity for individuals navigating their career paths. The four elements of Career Pursuit – the magazine, employment, business, and events – all have their own individual colours to define a theme and direct the end user.
Choosing the right typefaces was pivotal in maintaining readability and creating a cohesive visual identity. We selected contemporary fonts that exuded professionalism without sacrificing accessibility. The typography now strikes a balance between being authoritative and inviting, making the content on Career Pursuit’s platform more engaging and user-friendly.
To maintain consistency across all touchpoints, the new branding extends to collateral materials. From business cards to promotional materials, the cohesive visual language reinforces Career Pursuit’s identity and fosters brand recognition.
