With a newly constructed corporate headquarters, Covid-19 hit the world and Oshkosh Corporation was forced to temporarily close the doors on the new building and send everyone to work remotely from the safety of their homes. After the mandated shut-down, the leadership team wanted to resume with business as usual but knew that in order to do it safely, they'd need to follow CDC recommendations and ensure that everyone understood what that would entail.
As the recommendation to maintain six feet of distance became a staple for public safety we were tasked to create a system of graphics to remind everyone that we're all "Safer at Six." While staying on-brand and true to the corporation's visual identity, we created designs for a combination of floor graphics, signage, and wayfinding to promote health throughout the headquarters.
While following recommendations always falls into the hands of the individual, it's helpful to have reminders present and visible. These friendly reminders fit in with the corporation's branding throughout the space and communicate professionalism and strengthen the People First culture.
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.
