CORPORATE IDENTITY / LOGO DEVELOPMENT / BUSINESS CONSULTING
With over 6.000 employees in 2015, Silver Care Holding was one of Germany’s biggest private operators of senior citizen residences. My task was to create a unique branding for 13 individual companies that have been acquired by the Silver Care Holding.
40 residences from Schleswig to Stuttgart have had their own individual personalities. While respecting those the challenge was to unite the partly competing entrepreneurs. I developed a concept that aims at individualism. The new coporate identity needed to become a mission statement for all leaders and employees to identify as being an integral part of a community fulfilling an honorable task to our society: The support of older generations and treating them, too, as individuals.
Discovering individuality as a strong identifier to the leads of the newly acquired companies and uplifting it to one of the brand’s core values – on which a new corporate design could be built on – made me think of tackling an artistic approach to the project. I did some research on the topic until digging deeper into the idea behind expressionism. Back in the days this art genre has been a way for artists to express themselves very individually. Instead of visualizing in the most realistic ways, expressionists wanted to capture their very own certain moment by the concept of abstracting common motives from nature (sunsets, mountains, forests etc.) or portraits. Big names like Edvard Munch, Vincent van Gogh, Paul Klee or Wassily Kandinsky established this era and it still finds many followers today.
Thanks for your time. May I show you another project?
