The Final Piece of the Clever Climbers Puzzle

Well, we didn’t actually design a puzzle, but we did finish designing the last segment of the Little Tikes Commercial Clever Climbers Curriculum Kit, completing our creative quota (say that five times fast). For more information about alliteration, consult your Clever Climbers Curriculum Kit. For more information about the project, consult our portfolio.

FFaNY: Feet-uring new Anda Creative designed brands

Anda hopped over to the Fashion Footwear Association of New York (FFaNY) shoe show today to catch the tail end of our client’s (Dynasty Footwear) showrooms. As always, their showrooms looked great, with many innovative, warm-weather styles.

Anda collaborated with Dynasty over the past several months to rework several of their existing brands: Beach Club, People Movers, London Underground and more. Although some display fixtures and brands are still in the works, several finished branded footwear selections were on display, so check out our phone pics below. Hopefully more to come for the December FFaNY show…and hopefully we will remember to bring a real camera!

Weight Loss Couture Gains a New Website

Anda worked with St. Louis-based Weight Loss Couture to design and develop a new identity system and website to promote their ongoing commitment to better health. The owner of Weight Loss Couture desired a more effective identity system to match the quality of services his company offered. Weight Loss Couture works with clients to promote a healthier lifestyle and offers strategies for staying healthy once a desired goal has been obtained. Anda used a similar approach for this web project: to design and develop a website that can be easily updated on a continual basis, a user-friendly interface and easy-to-use content management system (CMS).

The Miracle of Style Guides

Redesigning a logo should not end with just a logo. Anda recognizes the importance of supporting and maintaining a strong brand through consistent logo usage. Can the logo be converted to greyscale? When should you use the tagline? What kind of graphics and images should be used with the logo? Hopefully these are the kinds of questions that arise when working with a new or redesigned brand. If not, then the users of the new logo are likely making these decisions on their own, which may not reflect the best branding practices. This is where Anda’s experience with brand and style guide books comes in. We recently worked with Miracle Recreation Equipment Company to create a thorough style guide and to map proper usage for the newly redesigned brand. The guide was created to introduce the oldest and largest commercial playground equipment manufacturer in the United States in a new light and to promote consistent usage.

See more images of the style guide in our portfolio.

Just in time for Pantone Black C Friday…Makalu Now at Shoe Carnival

We first wrote about this project last December after attending the 2011 FFaNY Shoe Expo in NYC . It’s been a year in the making, but Dynasty Footwear’s Makalu California™ shoe line is now available in Shoe Carnival stores everywhere. We teamed up with our friends at Dynasty to develop the branding for the new shoe line. This included logos, packaging, brand books and fixtures for displaying the shoes in their showrooms and now in the stores. It’s great to finally see the project come full circle!
