Project Overview: Branding and website design are vital to Seven Sisters’ ability to communicate its values to clients and the broader community, and the firm is excited to rebrand and update its image in celebration of its 10 year anniversary. Please visit the existing website at: https://www.7sistersconsulting.com/.
We are soliciting proposals for the following:
1) Develop a new logo,
2) Develop a corporate suite of marketing materials that incorporates the new logo, and
3) Redesign a website in alignment with the new branding profile.
The project timeline (subject to change) will take place over the course of 2022 and into 2023, beginning with the launch of a new logo to celebrate the firm’s 10th anniversary before the end of the year. In addition to the logo, a corporate suite of marketing materials featuring the new branding will be the other deliverable in 2022. Then, in the beginning of 2023, Seven Sisters will launch its revamped website to align with the refreshed branding. Each component of this project should focus on helping Seven Sisters visually communicate its values, its people, and its work.
