Last week, Munroe Creative Partners proudly received the Young Scholars Charter School (YSCS) Outstanding Corporate Partner Award. This annual award honors a corporate partner who goes above and beyond the call of duty to provide unique programs and services to Philadelphia’s communities.

We recently assisted YSCS in refreshing their brand and overall strategic vision and mission as well as developing bold print collateral for their fundraising campaign efforts.

In addition to our creative services, Brianna Minko (Account Supervisor) and Victoria Wischerth (Art Director) dedicated countless hours of volunteer service this year through the Philly Ad Club TEENS Program. This incredible program provides students hands-on experience in the fields of marketing and advertising, allowing them to develop their creative talents and explore their career interests.

Each year has been more rewarding than the last and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with these talented, hardworking students once again. We look forward to participating in the Philly Ad Club TEENS Program next year and discovering what our next group of students has to offer.

Girard Brand Launch

New Brand Launch: We Welcome You To Meet Girard.

Girard is a full-service wealth advisory firm, backed by the strength and stability of Univest, providing independent advice and solutions to help clients’ meet their investing and planning goals. Following the acquisition of Girard in 2018, we worked with the Univest and Girard teams to create and launch the new brand.

With a vibrant visual identity and accessible brand tone, we positioned Girard as a different kind of leader in wealth management, while remaining faithful to the energy, strength, and stability of the Univest brand.

Visually, we connected the two entities through complementary typography and circular design elements, but the Girard brand evolves Univest’s established style in new and interesting ways. The logo represents Girard’s holistic view of the client’s lives and creates a feeling of progress and upward motion. The brush style line art represents the personal touch that Girard offers its clients.

Marketing pieces portray professionalism but also openness, as there is a warmth and humanness that accompanies Girard’s promise of providing the strategies to achieve clients’ financial and life goals. Conversation and storytelling are important parts of the Girard brand, and collateral aims to convey Girard’s mission – focusing on what clients value, instead of what they’re worth.

The Wanamaker Building Brand Refresh

January 17, 2019 at 11:06 am

The Wanamaker Building, a landmark destination here in Philadelphia, has historically been known as “the Macy’s building” due to its 100-year retail history. With upcoming office space available for lease, the building needed to reclaim its identity and change perceptions to retain existing tenants and attract prospective creative/tech firms.

To achieve this, we positioned the brand as a space that inspires across our print collateral and social media channels. In tandem with our rebranding efforts, the Wanamaker team added extensive upgrades and renovations to the lobby as well as other areas of the building to create a more modern, inviting and inspiring feel. Click HERE to view the work.

In addition to traditional and digital marketing, the brand is at the heart of the physical building itself. Nowhere is this more evident than the brand new tenant lobby with the brand carved into marble and showcased on the impressive 350sf media wall, inspiring lighting design and sparkling twin escalators. This refreshed, contemporary aesthetic, combined with the breathtaking historic details and architecture create a space that tenants can walk into every day and feel inspired.

This rebrand conveys to the world that the new-and-improved Wanamaker Building is proud to embrace it’s past while inspiring future generations of innovators and creative thinkers.

New Work: FamilyWize Waiting Room Video

November 29, 2018 at 2:37 pm

Since 2005, FamilyWize has been dedicated to helping improve the health and well-being of their uninsured/under insured customers nationwide by providing access to affordable prescription medication options through partnerships with community groups, health care providers and pharmacies.

Recently, FamilyWize had the opportunity to develop waiting room videos in partnership with United Way, showcasing how they can help patients afford their medications. Munroe was engaged to develop arresting 60 second, 30 second and 15 second animated videos that would engage waiting room audiences and drive mobile app downloads.

To address the broad demographics who, because of the linkage to the United Way, would be exposed to this message, Munroe worked closely with our animator to develop 31 final versions of the videos, inclusive of English, Spanish and French language solutions and direct response tracking URLs.

The videos have just begun airing in the health care providers’ waiting room offices, and we are excited to track and optimize the results!

A leading fresh convenience retailer serving the Central New Jersey and Metro New York communities, QuickChek is known for fresh and delicious subs, salads and sandwiches, great-tasting coffee and quality fuel.

During the late summer of 2018, QuickChek introduced a new Mac & Cheese product line with signature recipes. All recipes start with the Classic; tender pasta shells smothered in a decadent white cheddar cheese sauce. Customers can add toppings like pot roast, meatballs and marinara, or spicy Buffalo chicken for Mac & Cheese that’s delicious any time of the day.

New Work: Sycamore at Tyvola Apartments Branding and Messaging

June 22, 2018 at 10:24 am

There’s no place like home.

Sycamore at Tyvola is a unique multi-family apartment community developed by Switzenbaum & Associates – offering all of the comforts and conveniences of urban living, with a full range of amenities and management services. As a new development site in North Carolina, Switzenbaum needed help creating a comprehensive marketing and branding platform that attracts potential residents ranging from young professionals to empty nesters.

Munroe jumped at the opportunity to showcase our messaging, branding and design expertise by creating marketing assets to generate buzz and excitement around the 288-unit property, while increasing foot traffic to the leasing center.

First, we designed the brand logo and created a fresh, clean color palette that reflects the natural surroundings of the property. Next, we developed messaging that emphasized the unparalleled living experience of Sycamore by highlighting the convenient and accessible location, its unique footprint in the Charlotte area, superior lifestyle amenities and the peace of mind that comes with this gated, elevator building community.

After ensuring all messaging touch points were consistent and on brand with the client’s vision, we implemented a creative marketing plan, which involved designing print collateral for the leasing center. This included: stationary, brochures, exterior signage, flyers, direct mail and promotional items.

The most important marketing asset we developed was the leasing website. Munroe conceptualized, wrote and designed a simple, user-friendly website that expanded upon the established brand identity. The website features a sleek, yet inviting design that is mobile-friendly and includes a virtual tour video and interactive design-your-home tool to increase overall interest and engagement in the property.

In the end, all of the pieces came together to create a cohesive branding experience designed to make residents feel right at home.

Sycamore at Tyvola is currently open for tours and pre-leasing opportunities.
