Quill Creative: Computer Corner Website home page design with illustrationsQuill Creative: Computer Corner tagline "We're in Your Corner" with custom illustration

Originally founded as the Winnebago Heroin Task Force, the Winnebago Drug & Alcohol Coalition agreed that the organization would be most effective at mitigating the risks of substance abuse in the area if they were able to present themselves as a more approachable community resource. Focusing efforts on the idea that an educated and strong community will have a natural barrier to block out the hazards of substance abuse. Our job was to develop a new name, messaging, and visual identity for the organization.

Since Oshkosh is the largest city within the county and also known for being on Lake Winnebago, we felt it would be most appropriate to focus the naming convention on a nautical theme. A breakwater is, in essence, a solid structure that's a compilation of many small pieces designed to protect valuable assets from stormy waters. With this concept at the core of the brand, our solution for the identity was to have everything revolve around this storyline and be presented with an approachable and fun-loving appearance. Since each effort to strengthen the community is unique, the logo is symbolic of that combined effort for a greater purpose.

Since re-launching the brand as Breakwater, the Winnebago County team has leveraged the updated position and visual identity to create a deeper impact within their community. A combination of informational handouts, video PSA segments shown at local theaters, an updated website and even the creation of a community podcast has opened the door for conversations with the community. The biggest message that's being driven by Breakwater is that we can all be working together to strengthen our community.

Updating the brand of the oldest business in Wisconsin still owned by a legacy family member, was not to be taken lightly. What we liked best about working with Quill was their respect for the past, while still forging a current brand strategy, supported with great creativity, to help us grow for another 100 years. It’s a very open and transparent relationship with great communication along the way.

We needed an identity to match our level of expertise & professionalism and Quill was the perfect team for the job. Most pool liner companies have the same old-school approach when it comes to branding & design, but Quill was able to breathe some fresh air on to this outdated, industry-standard style. From the clean, calming color palette, a creative new logo and unique website design, to our awesome new work vans, Quill gave us the exquisite “glow-up” we have been dreaming of for a long time.

Originally founded as the Winnebago Heroin Task Force, the Winnebago Drug & Alcohol Coalition agreed that the organization would be most effective at mitigating the risks of substance abuse in the area if they were able to present themselves as a more approachable community resource. Focusing efforts on the idea that an educated and strong community will have a natural barrier to block out the hazards of substance abuse. Our job was to develop a new name, messaging, and visual identity for the organization.

Become a part of Oshkosh's Aviation Story and business card design

Since Oshkosh is the largest city within the county and also known for being on Lake Winnebago, we felt it would be most appropriate to focus the naming convention on a nautical theme. A breakwater is, in essence, a solid structure that's a compilation of many small pieces designed to protect valuable assets from stormy waters. With this concept at the core of the brand, our solution for the identity was to have everything revolve around this storyline and be presented with an approachable and fun-loving appearance. Since each effort to strengthen the community is unique, the logo is symbolic of that combined effort for a greater purpose.

The Quill team was excellent to work with on our branding project. We were starting from scratch with no existing identity, but also had multiple stakeholders with vested interest which could have complicated the process. Ryan and the team were able to listen to our needs, research the limited examples in the market, and create something that reflected our asset. I greatly appreciated their ability to work with our project manager to keep things moving, but also the ability to present to the greater committee for feedback and approvals.

The team at Quill Creative was invested in my visual identity design from the moment I contacted them. Taking time to understand ISW and my vision was their first concern. The remainder of the process was timely, fluid and incorporated my feedback, and each team member I met was engaged with the product/concept they were delivering to me. I'm thrilled with the final results of ISW's updated Visual Identity brand.

Over the last year I've had the pleasure of working with Quill Creative Services to refresh the brand of my family's business which is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2021. On a scale of 100 for expectations I’d humbly give Quill a score of 200… The discovery, creative and implementation stages could not have gone smoother from my perspective as your typical/busy business owner. Quill invested the time to truly understand my company's history, personality, character, products, services and most importantly our customer base.  The end product has taken our brand to a level that I frankly believe to be genius.

Junior's Boot Wax Ad - Natural Formula, Protects any type of leather
Junior's Boot Wax - Clarence Gereau signature.

Originally founded as the Winnebago Heroin Task Force, the Winnebago Drug & Alcohol Coalition agreed that the organization would be most effective at mitigating the risks of substance abuse in the area if they were able to present themselves as a more approachable community resource. Focusing efforts on the idea that an educated and strong community will have a natural barrier to block out the hazards of substance abuse. Our job was to develop a new name, messaging, and visual identity for the organization.

Since re-launching the brand as Breakwater, the Winnebago County team has leveraged the updated position and visual identity to create a deeper impact within their community. A combination of informational handouts, video PSA segments shown at local theaters, an updated website and even the creation of a community podcast has opened the door for conversations with the community. The biggest message that's being driven by Breakwater is that we can all be working together to strengthen our community.

Since Oshkosh is the largest city within the county and also known for being on Lake Winnebago, we felt it would be most appropriate to focus the naming convention on a nautical theme. A breakwater is, in essence, a solid structure that's a compilation of many small pieces designed to protect valuable assets from stormy waters. With this concept at the core of the brand, our solution for the identity was to have everything revolve around this storyline and be presented with an approachable and fun-loving appearance. Since each effort to strengthen the community is unique, the logo is symbolic of that combined effort for a greater purpose.
