Artesia General Hospital
Hospital management asked Smith to develop a brand identity that signals the organization’s bold plans for growth and leadership within the community. With future aspirations to simplify their name under the umbrella Artesia Health, we created a mark and an identity system that works for the hospital, Foundation, medical specialties, physician practices and future acquisitions as well.
Identity, Magazine Design, Media Kit
Smith worked closely with the publisher and editor-in-chief to launch a new trade magazine serving the high-end residential architect and custom builder audience. We provided naming consultation services in addition to design of the publication and its identity. To showcase the distinctive homes, covers feature little more than the identity, one focal image and minimal cover lines. The quarterly publication drew industry acclaim for its modern, clean approach, a welcome addition to the traditional trade market.

Transplant Center Branding
When Loyola Medicine wanted to raise awareness of its top-rated Transplant Center, Smith created a branded, multicomponent program geared to two populations: patients and referring physicians. An identity system was created for four specialties—lung, liver, kidney and heart transplant. By using the same, illustrative design style, the specialty identities work together (in department-wide materials) and on their own (for targeted communications).

Global Rebrand and Identity Standards
When $2 billion commercial real estate powerhouse DTZ was spun off from UGL, Smith delved deep into the company’s businesses to help solidly position the company as a top 3 global leader. We created the DTZ brand strategy and positioning, refreshed its brand identity, developed modern design guidelines, and designed the look of the company’s updated marketing materials and web presence.
