Stevens & Tate Marketing awarded with three ‘American Package Design Awards’ from GD USA for brand development of their St. Catherine’s Village campaign and for Truly Supplements’ package design, brand creation and launch.
(LOMBARD, IL., December 1 2017)- Stevens & Tate Marketing continues to make an impact in the health and wellness space with award-winning graphic design for two businesses. The Lombard, Illinois, agency was just recognized with three 2017 “Health and Wellness Design Awards” from Graphic Design USA for its St. Catherine’s Village branding campaign and for Truly Supplements’ package design, brand creation and launch.
According to the agency, branding and package design both have a significant impact on a consumer’s purchasing decision, and GD USA recognizes this. The annual awards celebrate innovation and excellence — not only in graphic appeal but also in a brand’s ability to create an emotional link with a shopper. For GoldenTree Brands, which owns the probiotic line Truly Supplements, enhancing the shopping experience is an essential part of brand development. Stevens & Tate has helped the company meet changing consumer demands in each channel by launching the Truly brand from scratch.
The brand design was executed to appeal to an upscale audience through sleek packaging and a thought-out strategy. Mark Beebe, partner and creative director at Stevens & Tate Marketing, said, “We really wanted to underline the organic and natural aspects of this product, which is why we went with the tea leaf logo design and vibrant colors. It is simple yet sophisticated.”
Knowing that health and wellness is becoming an increasingly dominant trend in today’s consumer market, the art department created something that would appeal to a conscientious female buyer. Lee Golden, CEO of GoldenTree Brands, acknowledged this by saying, “Stevens & Tate is an innovative marketing company with vast industry knowledge. They are very up-to-date with consumer trends and the design team has a wonderful flare for out-of-the-box thinking.”
Versatility is Stevens & Tate Marketing’s strong suit — designing with the consumer in mind has always been a main objective for the agency regardless of the client or market. When creating the award-winning campaign for St. Catherine’s Village, the team again utilized their strategic talent to construct key insights about the senior living community. In everything from the website to collateral pieces, engaging photography depicts seniors in action and “really living” in their environment, sending a message of non-exclusivity.
“The new responsive design puts finding information conveniently into the hands of users wherever they are,” said Beebe. “Beyond being mobile and search friendly, the website also focuses on lead generation, offering numerous conversion points throughout to engage readers — whether they are active seniors or their adult children.”
In addition to highlighting the friendly and comfortable atmosphere at St. Catherine’s Village through artwork, the choice wording of the campaign and it’s warm color scheme emphasize that the all-inclusive, continuing care retirement community is luxurious yet still attainable.
These three winning entries are among 66 awards and recognitions Stevens & Tate Marketing has earned since its inception in 1995.
“We’ve never entered this competition before and weren’t expecting to win – however, we took home the title for all three categories we submitted entries for,” said Beebe. “We are honored to be recognized for our ability to produce impactful work that influences the consumer’s behavior – not only by the design community, but also with the success of our clients. This continued response is the ultimate reward.”
