Situation + Strategy

Katy + John wanted a brand that would capture their personalities and their love for + commitment to their clients + community, and it needed to be a visual attention-getter. 

In Bakersfield, the realtor profession is saturated, so it’s important to be unique + bring something solid to the table. For Katy and John, their personalities make all the difference. 

We partnered with OSS Analytics for this project, delivering a full rebranding package based on marketing research to drive Glentzer Group forward and set it apart in its industry.


Plan + Implementation

Market Research

To kick off this project, OSS Analytics gathered, analyzed + interpreted marketing research to guide the process.

Brand Discovery + Strategy

Before Purveyor House typed one brand word or pulled one color for a moodboard, we met with Katy and John to get to know their specific business + customers. We continued our brand discovery by conducting our own research, talking to past + current clients and checking out the competition + target markets. We wanted to develop a genuine relationship Katy + John, learning what they do best + what makes them tick, and then drill down to the core of how people currently see them and how we want people to see them moving forward.

We paired our research with OSS’s marketing research to create a full brand strategy built on Glentzer Group’s love of Bakersfield and unmatched ability to develop relationships with their clients + make record-setting deals.

Their full strategy included their brand vision, brand values + words and brand story. We also created a moodboard, focusing on warm tones and incorporating modern + vintage while adding elements to highlight who John + Katy are as individuals.

Building on the strategy, we developed a tagline that clearly defines the service Katy + John provide and how + where they do it.

For color palette + logo design, we expanded on the moodboard and created something that was warm, appealing across genders + impactful while maintaining a level of fun. The logo is a simple mark designed with strong fonts that have fun twist. The colors infuse life into the brand and have a distinct vintage vibe.

We carried the brand design into new collateral + packaging designs, and we updated their social media accounts to reflect the new Glentzer Group in both visuals + information. We also partnered with Lex & Ev to capture Katy + John's personalities through new headshots + content photos.

Content Marketing Plan

To help Glentzer Group reach future goals, we created a custom marketing + brand development plan based on their brand strategy. This plan takes stock of their current position and lays out the specific strategies, guardrails + activities to help them in their success.

Website Design

The final piece of work, done alongside OSS, was to create a new website to reflect Glentzer Group’s full rebrand.

Our friends at OSS provided SEO audit/repair, SEO copywriting, a great FAQ page and DX/MLS integration based on their marketing research. They provided services to increase the visibility, optimization + long-term health of the Glentzer Group website from both client + search engine perspectives.

Purveyor House crafted + launched the website, designed all graphics, curated photography to match the brand and provided copywriting for bios + the Glentzer Group story.

From the very first meeting, Shannon was listening to us, taking notes and observing us and our surroundings to capture who we are. She encouraged us to be ourselves and authentic in our advertising and branding. After many hours of work, she came back with our new branding that completely captured each of us individually and as a Real Estate group. We were so excited to reveal our new branding because it was so true to who we are personally and in business. It was a simple coming home to ourselves. We highly recommend Purveyor House!

More than a Number

Stewards is an advocacy nonprofit and representative payee agency that helps and resources the most vulnerable in our community to prevent homelessness.

We revived their look + feel with a new branding campaign, point of view, website + brand communication plan.

Situation + Strategy

Stewards, Inc. reached out to Purveyor House to rebrand + reframe the conversation around what they do. They are often asked, "So, what does Stewards, Inc. do?" They wanted to tell their story visually while elevating the perception of their services. 

Our objective was to craft a message behind Stewards, Inc., telling about their services in a way that is easy to understand and navigate while using design to illustrate + support what they do.

When we started, their logo was a dated bright orange cross emblem. While they wanted to retain the organization’s faith-rooted mission + history, they were open to a more current + modern look.

Plan + Implementation

We started with a deep dive into the current state of their communication. We found that, while they do an amazing job at doing the work, they weren't able to articulate it with the impact it deserved. 

We met with their team to hear about their daily interactions and the ways they give back to the community. We were left with an understanding of this organization + the stories we wanted to tell.

One of the first things we did was look into their name—Stewards, Inc. They wanted to become more approachable, so we recommended that they drop the "Inc" and own the name Stewards. Because being a good steward is central to who they are as an organization, it made sense to focus on that word. 

We also wanted to take into account the way their organization helps the community + use design to help in other ways many may not think of. Their previous logo had a vibrant and powerful orange color. At first look, it may be OK to keep that color, but, as we visited their operations, we realized that that color could be a bit disruptive. Stewards employees work with and at times need to help calm down clientele that walk into their offices. Using such a powerful color could create unease. As strategists, we saw an opportunity to use color to communicate that Stewards is a calm and trustworthy environment. We decided to build the brand around a soft blue color + weave in elements of a softer orange to nod back to their previous aesthetic.  

We landed on a design strategy that harkened back to their history while making room for future growth. Years ago, they were referred to as the Bridge Builders, so we chose a bridge icon to feature in their badge logo design. We also wanted to call out their longevity + long-standing impact in the community by using a tagline of "serving since 1995" within their badge design.


Results + Transformation

To tell their story properly, we outlined what we saw, heard + observed from our meeting with the Stewards team. Their website is oftentimes the first place people go to learn more about the organization, so we knew it should be easy to navigate and have critical information easily organized. By understanding who their target market is, we could predict what information people would need and make it readily available. We also wanted the website to function well for those wishing to learn about the organization in order to donate to their mission. 

Our work with Stewards included a full website redesign using their existing platform on Wix, a tool that, when used properly, can truly be customizable + on-brand. We wanted whatever we did to be updatable + customizable for the team at Stewards, so we built our deliverables around their needs.

We are honored to be the creative partner of Stewards.
