History & Background

Organization Structure

Mission Statement

Foresters traces its Canadian roots to the founding of The Independent Order of Foresters in 1874. Inspired by a prominent physician and leader — Dr. Oronhyatekha, a Mohawk who was the country’s first native doctor to practice western medicine — the organization flourished.

Foresters is a fraternal benefit society. This means they don’t have shareholders.

ForestersTM is not your traditional life insurance provider. We are not driven by the demands of outside investors. Instead, we are a membership-based fraternal benefits organization.

CLARICA GRAPHIC STANDARDS MANUAL

Instead, their members elect their own leaders, who elect the members of the International Assembly. The International Assembly is Foresters ultimate governing body; it elects the International Fraternal President and the members of the Board of Directors.

We invest in our members, their families and their communities

History & Background

Organization Structure

Mission Statement

Founded in Montreal, Quebec, as The Sun Insurance Company of Montreal in 1865 by Mathew Hamilton Gault, an Irish immigrant who settled in Montreal in 1842, its operations began in 1871.

Sun Life Financial Canada’s President is Kevin Dougherty.

Our mission is to help customers achieve lifetime financial security.

The corporate structure is made up of an executive leadership group.

Our vision is to be an international leader in protection and wealth management.

By the end of the 19th century it had expanded to Central and South America, the United States, the United Kingdom, West Indies, Japan, China, India, North Africa and other international markets.

CLARICA GRAPHIC STANDARDS MANUAL

Our values are the foundation of our day-to-day business operations. At Sun Life, we’re about: Integrity, Engagement, Customer Focus, Excellence, and Value.


Research Analysis Though all three financial companies share many attributes, such as; Canadian roots, 100 + years of service, they manage to differentiate themselves from one another. Foresters completely re-branded a year ago, and this allowed them to become a more friendly and innovative company, focusing in on the client rather than the empire. Manulife is the more corporate and sturdy company. While Sun Life Financial manages to maintain a trustworthy and professional image while being inviting and friendly. The branding of each of these companies manage to convey all of the ideas of trustworthiness and planning without outright saying they take your money. They do a good job of talking about life insurance in a non-morbid way.

I explored the idea of the “x” and intersection to communicate connection and community.

The rational behind this concept was to create a graphic, simplified letter “C” to use as the word mark. Though these symbols look corporate, they weren’t chosen because they weren’t dynamic or true to my original goal; to represent clarity.

clarica clarica

clarica clarica

These symbols take the idea of the “ripple” and through use of colour, transform it to become less literal.

Though these work-mark explorations are dynamic and memorable, they weren’t true representations of Clarica.

CLARICA GRAPHIC STANDARDS MANUAL


1.4 Visual Mark Development This was initially chosen as my top choice, but after feedback I realized that although the symbol is strong, it did look like a nebula, not that appropriate for insurance.

I cropped the symbol I was initially working on to give it more structure. But this frame also took away the whimsical nature of the initial symbol.

Stacked Visual Mark

Finalized Visual Mark Stacked and horizontal versions have been designed for each Clarica Logo to allow flexibility for a range of applications.

Horizontal Visual Mark

CLARICA GRAPHIC STANDARDS MANUAL


2.3 Finalized Visual Mark The minimum clear space for the Clarica Logo is defined by the height of the “c” in the word mark.

The minimum space for the standard logo is twice the height of “c.” The minimum space should be maintained as the logo is proportionally enlarged or reduced in size.

2.4 Minimum Size Stacked Visual Mark

Finalized Visual Mark The minimum size of the logo is determined by the width of the Clarica word mark, which should not be reproduced in a smaller size than 1.5” in width for the standard logo, 1.5” for the horizontal visual mark and 1” for the stacked visual mark.

2.5.2 Visual Mark Colour Reproductions

Finalized Visual Mark The Clarica logo should be reproduced in color whenever possible. For specific color values to use section. White is the most effective background on which to reproduce the color logo because it provides a clean, crisp contrast for the logo’s color and elements. If color reproduction is not available or is not a viable option, the logo should be reproduced in solid black or as a full-reverse in white out of a color background. When the Clarica logo is placed on a photographic image, the image behind the logo must be light enough to provide contrast for the positive logo or dark enough to provide contrast for the reverse logo. The secondary colour reproductions should be used in situations specific to the type of banking it represents (refer to colour palette for breakdown). As secondary colours the visual mark itself cannot be reproduced in a secondary colour however it can be knocked out when placed on the colour.

I experimented with various business card layouts

I tried using the secondary colours for the standard visual mark, but decided to keep the logos in blue, and use the secondary palette when the logo is knocked out.


3.1.1 Identity Applications I tried out various patterns for the inside of the envelope. I was aiming to create a patten that kept the look of clarity and go along with other graphic elements.

CLARICA GRAPHIC STANDARDS MANUAL


Design Rationale I had to create a visual mark for Clarica that was unique and differentiated and work across multiple media and applications. I took inspiration form the idea of clarity, pursing it as a concept to create a visual mark which was clean, fresh and inviting. Bariol was chosen as the primary typeface because it is rounded, it fulfills the need of being simple yet friendly. The outline of circles were combined in a symmetrical yet dynamic layout to represent an abstracted water ripple. The word Clarica was placed in the center to represent the drop which creates the water ripples. I chose to work with the outlines rather than filled in circle shapes because the outlines were far more versatile, especially when used on a variety of mediums. The colour blue was chosen as the primary colour because of its calm nature. The secondary palette is used to represent the various insurance sections of Clarica; personal, commercial, and corporate. The end result is a visual mark which I feel is differentiated, unique and does work across multiple media and applications.
