Treadwell Case Study: Elevating a Brand to New Heights

An impressive ROI of 943% on their investment with us.

When Treadwell initially partnered with us to brand their startup software consulting business, we laid a strong foundation for their identity. Years later, they returned to elevate their marketing and refresh their brand. Our comprehensive approach included revamping their logo, color palette, website, photography, and print materials. This refresh not only modernized their appearance but also clarified their mission.

Remarkably, within just a few days of the rebrand, Treadwell secured its largest client to date. Treadwell has been expanding its team, growing its client base, and thriving.

Above is the collateral for Treadwell’s rebrand.

Rebranding LCMNET to LuMin: A Comprehensive Transformation

We spearheaded the complete rebranding of LCMNET, transforming it into the vibrant and memorable “LuMin.” This extensive project included several key elements:

  • Creation of a Memorable Emblem: We designed a distinctive emblem that encapsulates the spirit and mission of LuMin, ensuring it stands out and resonates with its audience.

  • Color Palette Inspired by the Church Calendar: Drawing inspiration from the rich and meaningful colors of the church calendar, we developed a cohesive color palette that adds depth and significance to the brand’s visual identity.

  • Brand Film Production: Our team traveled across the country to produce an inspiring brand film. We highlighted various campus ministries and captured the dynamic student life at both large and small campuses. This film serves as a powerful storytelling tool, showcasing the impact and reach of LuMin.

  • Creation of Brand Images: We produced a suite of high-quality brand images for use on the website, in print materials, and across social media platforms. These images reflect the diverse and vibrant community within LuMin, enhancing its visual appeal and engagement.

  • Nationwide Integration: The new identity has been seamlessly incorporated into hundreds of campus ministries around the country, unifying their appearance and strengthening their collective presence.

This rebranding effort not only revitalized the organization’s image but also reinforced its mission and expanded its reach, creating a stronger connection with its community and supporters.

Above is the brand video for the launch of LuMin, as well as the hero image, visual identity, and tagline.

Revitalizing Tradition: A Decade of Growth Through Thoughtful Church Rebranding

Rebranding a church with a storied history and a passionate congregation is a delicate and significant task. Our team understands the importance of preserving and honoring the legacy of such an institution, especially one that has undergone a merger. Our goal was to create a new identity for Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, based in Manchester, Missouri, that not only respects the past but also resonates with the current community, meeting the demands of today’s brand-savvy market.

We began by engaging deeply with the church’s leadership and elected lay leaders, ensuring that every voice was heard and every concern addressed. With these insights, we embarked on crafting a visual identity that seamlessly translates across all platforms—print, screen, signage, and social media—ensuring consistency and recognition in every interaction.

In addition to the rebrand, we developed an industry-leading, mobile-ready website that integrates smoothly with the church’s CRM and donation platforms, providing a seamless user experience for both the congregation and the administrative team.

Now, nearly a decade since the project’s inception, the community continues to thrive, fully embracing the new identity we helped create. This rebrand not only honored the church’s rich history but also equipped it with the tools to grow and connect in today’s digital age.

Honoring Legacy and Inspiring Future: Faith Lutheran Church Capital Campaign Videos

Our team produced a series of three heartfelt videos for Faith Lutheran Church’s Phase 2 capital campaign, focused on redesigning the sanctuary. These videos play a pivotal role in the campaign by highlighting and expressing gratitude to the dedicated individuals who contributed to making the current sanctuary a cherished space. Through personal stories and heartfelt messages, we aimed to honor their legacy while inspiring the congregation to support the future vision. These videos not only celebrate the past but also foster a sense of community and shared purpose as the church embarks on this exciting new chapter.

Producing a 50th Anniversary Cornerstone Film: Let It Shine: Rainbow Trail - A Celebration of Ministry

“Let It Shine” marked the beginning of Bear Wade’s non-profit storytelling journey. Premiering in 2006, this film became a cornerstone for the camp’s 50th Anniversary Gala and served as a significant fundraiser for over a decade.

During the gala weekend, we rented an independent movie theatre and watched the film with over 200 supporters, filling the house.

Executive Director Dave Jarvis used the film to bring people “into camp” from afar, helping them understand the camp’s impact and the legacy they could contribute to.

Bear, who grew up attending this camp with his family and worked on staff for four seasons, created a meaningful project that is still used every summer for staff training. The film helps new staff understand the legacy they are part of and the camp’s future goals.

This film is proudly part of our portfolio, not to display our current style but to highlight the incredible impact it had on the community. Nearly two decades later, it continues to yield results, with increased volunteer support and record fundraising.

Bear aims to continue creating long-form storytelling films for organizations with lasting legacies that need to be preserved and celebrated.

Creating the Heart of a Virtual Summer: Camp at Home 2020 Video

In the summer of 2020, Bear Wade was asked to be part of the task force that brought camp home to campers during the summer of quarantine.

Our captivating video became the “tone setter” of the online platform for the “Camp at Home” program for Rainbow Trail Lutheran Camp in Hillside, Colorado.

This video was crucial, bringing the camp experience to life for participants who couldn’t attend in person.

Through engaging visuals and compelling storytelling, we captured the essence of summer camp, providing a sense of connection and excitement for campers at home.

We helped train the staff on creating content, editing workflows, and storytelling, which helped provide a dynamic experience for young campers.

Our video played a pivotal role in ensuring the success of the virtual camp, making it an unforgettable experience despite the distance.

By showcasing personal stories and presenting innovative solutions, we aimed to educate and engage a broader audience. Our storytelling approach brought a human touch to the research, making complex topics more relatable and accessible, and ultimately supporting the project’s mission to inform and empower individuals about their contraceptive choices.

We produced a charming film to celebrate the small but mighty mission garden at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.
