And alongside the newly launched Choose Meridian project, Graphic Zen also completed the redesign of the Meridian Chamber of Commerce website. This is continuing with the goal of the Chamber’s 5-year plan, and one step of that was completed a couple of years ago when we created the new logo for the Chamber. This new website continues with the branding elements that were created with the new logo and is a cleaner and easier to navigate site than the previous version. It also integrates with the Chamber’s member management software (Chamber Master) so that the Chamber staff can continue to utilize that software without having to reinvent the wheel and learn something new. Additional info and images about the project can be found at this link.
Welcome to the interwebs Choose Meridian! This project was a logo and website to benefit the Meridian Chamber of Commerce and the City of Meridian, Idaho. We collaborated with the Meridian Chamber of Commerce to create an identity that would complement the Chamber brand identity we designed a couple of years ago. The goal of the website is to be a tourist/relocation resource that showcases the tourist attractions and events that are in Meridian and also details the resources that are of interest to businesses and families that might be looking to relocated to Meridian. School information, hotels, rental and real estate information are all located in an easy to navigate website. You can check out more about the project at this link.

Continuing work with a new client, and we just finished their new logo. Meet Stroth General, a commercial and residential contractor that is licensed in Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Utah and Colorado. In addition to the new logo we are in the process of building out a new website for them, which should be online by the first part of 2017. This project was typical of most logo design projects, in that after an their initial logo intake, we met to discuss needs, wants and desires. From there we created a few rounds of concepts, and the client selected one for refinement, which in this case was only minor color adjustments. After providing the finished logo, we began the process of building the site, which is currently in the development stage so if you happen to visit strothgeneral.com you’ll see a nice landing page that displays their new logo and contact information. If you’d like us to help build your new logo, please visit our logo page here.
Just finished up a new logo for a blogger and adventure traveler: TallBoy and DaisyJ. This couple travels the U.S. and internationally on exciting mountain bike tours, and Daisy J loves to write about it. In her words,
Years ago when I was working long hours and filling my time with work hours instead of ‘anything other then work’ I found that I worried more, felt worn out and daily could feel my light within diminishing. I was not of much value to myself or anyone else. When I found time to stop and get quiet I heard a sweet, soft voice whisper, “Be true to yourself. Write more, express more, be adventurous and above all love more.”
My job was to create a new logo for her upcoming blog, something that showcased her love for the outdoors and mountain biking. Fun project, awesome client.
