Michigan State Parks Rebrand

Branding System

December 2021



The Goal:


Rebrand an existing Michigan brand to give them new life.




The Solution:


The brand Maddie chose to redo was the Michigan State Parks DNR system. She did a lot of research online, as well as field research going to different parks, taking pictures and writing notes.




Role:


Designer, Copywriter

 

Challenges Faced:


Challenges arose throughout this whole project, from conceptualization to final days of production. She came up with the signature ‘M’ early on, but then struggled a bit to incorporate it in a way that was not overtaking the brand. She took a bit of time to nail down a solid concept.


Deliverables:


Full branding system, Brand Guidelines; mock-ups, letterhead, envelope, business card, website screens, mobile app screens, motion element, products-physical mock-ups.

This was a learning experience for Maddie. It was a lengthy and difficult process, and she would like to go back and rework some of it and give finishing touches.
