New Logo Brand & New Website for Carolinas Council
Carolinas Council of Housing Redevelopment & Codes Officials (CCHRCO) was recently rebranded with a new logo. The logo design was donated by Brooks Jeffrey Marketing, Inc. www.BrooksJeffrey.com and is used on the new CCHRCO website www.CarolinasCouncil.org
The goal of the new logo design was to again incorporate the red and blue state colors of North & South Carolina with a stylized “bridge” connecting the two states, showing stylized “housing” in both states. The new logo is easily identifiable & easy to read. Importantly, the new logo will be easy to reproduce on a variety of marketing/promotional products to further promote the CCHRCO.
Brooks Jeffrey Marketing, based in Mountain Home, Arkansas, was awarded the contract for the new CCHRCO website. Established in 1984, Brooks Jeffrey Marketing provides integrated marketing solutions: advertising, branding, photography, public relations, promotional items, web sites & social media campaigns to businesses, government entities & non-profits throughout the US. Brooks Jeffrey offers customized integrated marketing solutions to Housing Authorities.
The new ‘responsive’ website includes the new logo, branding and colors. This new “responsive” website allows users to easily navigate the website no matter what device is used in viewing the website (desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone).
Some of the features/ functions on the new site include:
- Calendar with e-commerce functions to allow easy conference registration/ payment
