Brand Evolution of a Dermatology Practice

Dermatology Affiliate Locations (DAL) existed as of a group of four individual dermatology practices in the Chicagoland area. They all shared the same core principle – to preserve the relationship between their practices and communities, while establishing a larger network. The intent was, and still is, to remain independent so that the physicians could drive decisions for patient care.

The Challenge

A unified brand was missing. It was clear that a cohesive brand presence was critical to build credibility and maximize patient confidence and loyalty. We needed to unify practices into a collaborative group while allowing individual practices to maintain their local identity.

The Assignment

Our main job was to deliver new and improved brand guidelines, including a new company identity, refreshed icon and tagline, and new logos, colors and fonts. We then incorporated these brand elements into a fully integrated website.

The Results

We achieved the aforementioned deliverables, and more. Throughout the process of refreshing the brand, we discovered that it was imperative to also also rename and redesign DAL into something meaningful, identifiable, and sustainable. Thus, SJH Derm was born – a physician driven & employee-owned organization. It is undoubtedly part of the brand story, along with the new visual brand elements.

Previous iconography

The new lotus is an evolution of the previous icons

Maintaining the client’s desire to honor the individual practices, we created fresh and consistent logos that highlight the lotus icon and stays true to the updated brand identity.

The new identity of SJH Derm needed a logo different from, but consistent with, the individual practice logos.
