Touching Hearts at Home

THE CHALLENGE

Nationally reaching at home care service provider, Touching Hearts, was in need of a brand refresh to match the renewed vitality that their personalized and heartfelt care brings to the lives of clients on a daily basis. Capsule was tasked to not only craft all of the essential elements of a brand refresh like mark, visual identity and messaging, but apply the summation of this work to a new Touching Hearts web experience as well.

The SOlutioN

The new mark highlights the coming together of two distinct pieces to form an abstracted heart, and is representative of the intimate and compassion filled relationship formed between caregiver and client.

Exploration of the primary color palette led to the adoption of a lighter purple in place of the darker hue found in the original mark. Balanced with the introduction of a peach color, the new color palette provides a lighter look and feel that injects more vibrancy and life into an industry that can often hold cold or sterile associations.

Messaging

The warm, nurturing and uplifting voice of a close companion is channeled in the messaging strategy to inspire clients and caregivers alike with Touching Hearts' core purpose of redefining heartfelt care through consistency, companionship and compassion.

vISUAL iDENTITY & COLLATERAL

Considering the older age to which the core audience of Touching Hearts skews, size and legibility were both carefully taken into account when designing the visual identity system and subsequent collateral pieces. A clean set of newly designed brand elements, including custom iconography, were developed and incorporated into the system to promote a warm brand personality and easier information navigability across all branded collateral.

Abstracted pieces of the heart and home iconography were further utilized to provide masking for a Capsule directed photography style that underscores the fun, joy and excitement yet to be had in life’s later years.

With newly designed brand elements in hand, we began the process of applying our work to the World Wide Web. We refreshed Touching Hearts’ web experience to not only more faithfully represent their offerings and values, but provide functionally designed assets that could be easily systemized and spread across their more than 60 franchisee sites with consistent brand cohesiveness.

The end result was much more than a full, fresh and optimistic update for the Touching Hearts brand. Our work broke each newly designed element into easily utilized and versatile brand “lego pieces” in a readily accessible asset tool box that brand champions and franchisees could take and run with as they crafted their own customized collateral while remaining aligned with overarching brand standards. To date, Touching Hearts at Home has successfully launched its rebrand and new website to warm enthusiasm from internal stakeholders, caregiver partners and clients alike.
