2. Barrington Public Library

Business: Community library in Barrington, RI

How I helped tell their story:

The Barrington Public Library provides services to more than 16,000 residents of Barrington, RI.

They offer classes and workshops weekly to children and adults of all ages, and support the Barrington community at a grassroots level.

When they first approached me, the team at BPL was looking to improve their brand to attract both more donors and more community involvement. They also wanted to give their library logo a new, fresh coat of paint.

I helped them understand that, in order to breathe more life into their library, they had to begin with the logo.

Work I completed for the Library:

Logo and brand strategy
Business cards
Announcement/event templates
Library cards
Interior office design concepts

The Bottom Line:

  • An accessible, inviting logo and a comprehensive brand strategy invited more engagement at the library itself.
  • The new brand and visuals helped the library and its staff convey the importance of their place at the center of the Barrington community.
  • Through the new collateral I’ve worked on with them, they’re able to speak more clearly to potential donors and supporters.

“Working with Laura helped our library come together with a unifying message. With brand-recognition in the community and polished professional communications, we know these efforts will continue to speak to future donors about the importance of a public library in our community.”

– Jessica D’Avanza, Community Engagement Librarian

3. SkinPros

Business: Comprehensive dermatology practice in Providence, RI

How I helped tell their story:

Starting with logo design, I created a warm, inviting, professional brand image that we then wove through additional materials to ensure continuity.

From the moment clients walk in the building, even down to filling out their forms, they can tell that they’re dealing with an incredibly professional business that takes care of every detail of their care.

While maintaining the brand feel, I designed a responsive website that made it hassle-free for clients to book appointments quickly on the website and pay their bills online.

Work I completed for SkinPros:

Logo design
Outdoor facade signage
Responsive website
Product packaging artwork
Patient forms
Print advertising
Letterhead & business cards
Gift cards
Welcome postcards

The Bottom Line:

  • Potential clients immediately trust that if they reach out with any type of skin issue, they are in capable hands.
  • The cohesive look and feel of a well-designed logo and color palette throughout all materials speak to my client’s attention to detail.
  • Since opening their first location in Providence, SkinPros has expanded to two more locations (Cumberland and Newport).

“Your work has solidified our brand identity. Our materials all share the same feel – a professional, warm, clean look across our media. At this point, I feel like you can almost read our minds and know what we are looking for!

– Antonio Cruz, MD, owner

How much growth are you hoping for with your business? Good design can help.

Key Takeaways:

  1. I enjoy working with my clients on multiple projects (like these) over the long-term and, if needed, serve as their brand ‘shepherd,’ ensuring their visual voice stays strong and cohesive long into the future.
  2. Even though I’ve provided a great branding platform for these clients, each one of them continues to consult with me on important visual messaging for their organization.
