E-Power Brand Identity "Digital marketing confidence from our team to yours."E-Power Brand Identity happy client photograph

Thedacare is one of the leading nonprofit healthcare providers in northeast and central Wisconsin. They work passionately to support programs and initiatives for improving community health. One of those programs has been running consecutively for almost 20 years and started as a program to educate high schoolers on the dangers of drinking and driving. Over the years, the number of distractions available has increased and the program has shifted to stay relevant. Not only is there a focus on drinking and driving, but now incidents stemming from distractions such as cell phone use have continued to rise. Our job was to rename and rebrand this community program to bring it up to speed with today’s issues.

E-Power Brand Identity "Results from experts you can trust."

Our goal for creating the identity for this program is to provide a clear message and an impactful design system that they could leverage for the next 20 years. By including colors from the Thedacare brand and giving the design an edgy twist, we aimed to create a solution that would resonate with students as well as compliment the core brand.

In an effort to be as straightforward as possible, we chose to rename the program to FOCUS. As simple as it sounds, it’s what needs to stick. The word is also an acronym with 5 pillars of information. This program and it’s marketing materials are crafted and designed to remind people, with sobering examples of the alternative, that while they’re on the road, they should just focus on driving.

On May 26th, 2020, Thedacare announced the launch of the new FOCUS program to an excited community. Plans were set to hold their first event in late October that year. Due to the worldwide COVID pandemic, the 2020 program was canceled and rescheduled to be virtual. With the newly created brand and visual elements, Thedacare was able to leverage production partners to bring the program to life in a virtual environment. When Thedacare extends its reach into our community with programs such as this one, there’s no doubt that positive impact happens.

FOCUS Identity

For more than two decades, the Trauma Center at ThedaCare Regional Medical Center-Neenah has hosted a program aiming to empower high school-age students to make safe choices by shedding light on the dangers of risky behaviors and their often life-changing outcomes. What started as a program revolving around the subject of substance abuse has evolved throughout the last 20 years and required an updated messaging platform and brand identity to bring it to life.

Thedacare is one of the leading nonprofit healthcare providers in northeast and central Wisconsin. They work passionately to support programs and initiatives for improving community health. One of those programs has been running consecutively for almost 20 years and started as a program to educate high schoolers on the dangers of drinking and driving. Over the years, the number of distractions available has increased and the program has shifted to stay relevant. Not only is there a focus on drinking and driving, but now incidents stemming from distractions such as cell phone use have continued to rise. Our job was to rename and rebrand this community program to bring it up to speed with today’s issues.

Our goal for creating the identity for this program is to provide a clear message and an impactful design system that they could leverage for the next 20 years. By including colors from the Thedacare brand and giving the design an edgy twist, we aimed to create a solution that would resonate with students as well as compliment the core brand.

In an effort to be as straightforward as possible, we chose to rename the program to FOCUS. As simple as it sounds, it’s what needs to stick. The word is also an acronym with 5 pillars of information. This program and it’s marketing materials are crafted and designed to remind people, with sobering examples of the alternative, that while they’re on the road, they should just focus on driving.

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.

Good Foods brand guide cover & pages

On May 26th, 2020, Thedacare announced the launch of the new FOCUS program to an excited community. Plans were set to hold their first event in late October that year. Due to the worldwide COVID pandemic, the 2020 program was canceled and rescheduled to be virtual. With the newly created brand and visual elements, Thedacare was able to leverage production partners to bring the program to life in a virtual environment. When Thedacare extends its reach into our community with programs such as this one, there’s no doubt that positive impact happens.

FOCUS Identity

For more than two decades, the Trauma Center at ThedaCare Regional Medical Center-Neenah has hosted a program aiming to empower high school-age students to make safe choices by shedding light on the dangers of risky behaviors and their often life-changing outcomes. What started as a program revolving around the subject of substance abuse has evolved throughout the last 20 years and required an updated messaging platform and brand identity to bring it to life.

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

Thedacare is one of the leading nonprofit healthcare providers in northeast and central Wisconsin. They work passionately to support programs and initiatives for improving community health. One of those programs has been running consecutively for almost 20 years and started as a program to educate high schoolers on the dangers of drinking and driving. Over the years, the number of distractions available has increased and the program has shifted to stay relevant. Not only is there a focus on drinking and driving, but now incidents stemming from distractions such as cell phone use have continued to rise. Our job was to rename and rebrand this community program to bring it up to speed with today’s issues.

From initial concept discussions through creative brief and end product the team at Quill was responsive, receptive and thorough.

Our goal for creating the identity for this program is to provide a clear message and an impactful design system that they could leverage for the next 20 years. By including colors from the Thedacare brand and giving the design an edgy twist, we aimed to create a solution that would resonate with students as well as compliment the core brand.

In an effort to be as straightforward as possible, we chose to rename the program to FOCUS. As simple as it sounds, it’s what needs to stick. The word is also an acronym with 5 pillars of information. This program and it’s marketing materials are crafted and designed to remind people, with sobering examples of the alternative, that while they’re on the road, they should just focus on driving.
