Logo Design and Branding For Your Business


When most people think of branding, they think of a logo. What most business owners don’t understand is that a logo just scratches the surface of branding; it’s merely the visual representation. A brand is so much more. It is the collection of thoughts, perceptions, and ideas that a person has about a company. It’s the company’s personality.

Logo Design By Pro Web Marketing

In other words, a brand really only lives inside of our heads. Crazy, eh?

For instance, when you think of Nike you absolutely think of the “swoosh.” But in reality, that logo is just a visual indicator that brings up so many more ideas—concepts of strength, perseverance, and tenacity. You might envision an athlete running on a track. You might remember one of the most challenging obstacles you have overcome.

All of these ideas are carefully portrayed by Nike through colors, imagery choice, and verbal tone in all of their marketing materials from print to digital. The logo merely acts as a reminder of the brand.

When a repeated logo is combined with a repeated and consistent brand message, something magical happens. A company suddenly begins to embody a personality, it begins to connect and resonate with an audience.

Without branding, a company is lifeless, empty, and intangible.

At Pro Web, you’ll hear us talk a lot about branding. We’ll bring it up again and again as we work through your website and print materials, helping to ensure that the message is consistent.

It’s just one of the ways we go beyond a website to make your entire marketing strategy—and your company—successful.

Culver Meadows Adult Fost Care Facility

Culver Meadows adult foster care facility has been serving the Grand Traverse area and all of Northern Michigan for over 20 years. They have been a great client of Pro Web Marketing for some time as well. When owners Brad and Trina decided it was time to redesign the website they indicated that they wanted a clean, yet not clinical design, that reflected the atmosphere they provide to their guests. We were eager to help!

Our team of graphic designers used a wood background to help give the site a scence of warmth and quality, and laid out the content in a way that is easy to read but brings the proper attention to the important details.

The biggest challenge of modern websites is keeping them current and relevant. Not only do design styles change quickly, but guidelines for search engine optimization are constantly evolving as well. Our Web developers created a custom theme for Culver Meadows in the WordPress content management platform that meets all modern web standard. Pro Web Marketing adopted responsive web design as our standard very early on to make sure our clients web sites are optimized to be viewed on screen sizes from mobile devices such as phones and tablets to large monitors. User experience is an important part of website ranking on search engines such as Google and Bing, as is making sure the information on websites are up to date. The WordPress content management system allows for easy site updates and maintenance. Culver Meadows will no longer have to call a web developer to change the verbiage on their website or to add photos. Of course if for any reason they need help, Pro Web Marketing will be right here to help in anyway we can.

After the new website was live, our marketing team worked with Culver Meadows, to make sure the site was optimized to be found on search engines. We targeted the keywords that folks are actively searching for when looking for the services Brad and Trina’s team has to offer.

Natures Image Landscape

When Aaron from Natures Image Landscaping of Traverse City approached us about a branding redesign and website project, Pro Web Marketing was happy to help.

Our team of graphic designers started with the creation of the logo. Aaron had a specific idea of what he wanted. We worked to make his vision work on multiple platforms from brochure and print design to his website.

Once the logo was settled, the designers set out to create a modern functional design that was simple, informative and visually appealing.

Our website development team coded the site into a responsive, custom WordPress theme that will ensure the site will look great on all platforms from cell phones and tablets to large monitors. On top of being responsive, the WordPress CMS platform makes the website easy to edit

so Aaron and his team can easily make changes to text without the need to call in a web developer. Of course if they ever ran into any issues

or simply were to busy to make edits to the site, we will gladly be available to help out.
