FLAMINGO GARDENS


REBRANDING Project Book 2012


F

lamingo Gardens is a place to appreciate, enjoy and preserve the natural habitat of the everglades. It has grown and reinvented itself over the years, first being a commercial orange grove turned botanical garden, and currently a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and rehabilitating the native animals and flora of South Florida. To take this historical company to another level while continuing the course, a rebranding of its public face will help to solidify their efforts to break into new and emerging markets, while letting their guests and competition know that Flamingo Gardens is always striving for the highest level of excellence. The following Rebranding Style Guide lays the foundation for keeping the integrity of the brand while maintaining consistency for years to come.

RESEARCH PAPER Abstract Extensive research has been done to explore, define, and explain the process that should be taken to revitalize the brand of Flamingo Gardens and focus its attention towards a new target audience. Its current brand is dated, has no specific target audience, and does not fully take advantage of marketing opportunities such as the Web, on-site signage, and advertising. Flamingo Gardens is a non-profit organization, and relies on government and donor funds. A brand redesign will help to reestablish its mission and services in the community, increase brand perception in its market, and make a stronger case to attract funds that help to do more for their mission and cause. The redesign will entail updating the logo, website, signage, advertisements and other printed materials.A new branding strategy will keep these elements unified and consistent. Each

of these elements has been thoroughly researched to explain why each choice was made. Flamingo Gardens exists to remind, educate, and celebrate the beauty of the Florida Everglades by providing a one-of-a-kind eco experience and provide a permanent and safe home for its native flora and wildlife. In order to ensure that this unique establishment survives over the years and maintains the name that it built for itself and its importance in South Florida, a redesign of its brand is imperative.


FLAMINGO GARDENS STYLE GUIDE

The rebranding project In order to attract new customers and raise ecological awareness of the Florida Everglades at Flamingo Gardens, a campaign needs to be developed to bring in those new customers and keep them coming, while enticing existing customers to visit again. The company must also boost consumer perception, which is currently not as strong as it could be. Flamingo Gardens currently has a poor brand identity and is not as widely known as its competitors, even though it has the unique selling point of being the only botanical garden and wildlife sanctuary in south Florida. They currently target everyone as their audience, and in doing so their lack of direction towards a specific demographic results in a slower stream of customers.A new target audience will be the focus of the campaign, which will be launched along with a company rebranding effort that will allow Flamingo Gardens to reposition itself

in its competitive market. This paper explains how the elements of the Flamingo Gardens rebranding project will create a stronger brand identity to bring more customers and raise ecological awareness of the Florida Everglades.

Photo ethnography Based on the headline, “When was the last time YOU took a field trip?”, the voice should be slightly humorous and thoughtful, intuitive and playful. Since the target audience is children and families, the copy should appeal to kids and the ‘kid at heart’ in adults. The voice should also sound like a friend is talking to them, someone familiar showing them around Flamingo Gardens. Almost a hand-holding type of voice should be heard when reading the type.

BRAND DESCRIPTION About Flamingo Gardens

The Brand

Flamingo Gardens is a 60 acre wildlife sanctuary and botanical reserve in Davie, Florida. It began as a home that was built in the 1930’s by the Wrays, a business couple who used the property for entertaining and relaxation.They were an influential couple in the area who had ties to President Eisenhower and other local business individuals and civic groups. The home was later turned into an Everglades museum.

The Flamingo Gardens brand stays true to its historical roots, but with a fresh modern look. The updated brand puts the Flamingo Gardens experience at the forefront, giving the audience a front seat and pull them in with larger than life imagery and bright inviting colors.The Flamingo Gardens brand stays true to its historical roots, but with a fresh modern look.

Why these colors? The following color palette was chosen to evoke emotions in the target audience and also depict colors naturally found in the everglades environment.The warm palette triggers energy and revival in adults, vibrant playfulness in children and fresh youthful happiness in teenagers.

VOICE & TONE Voice Based on the headline, “When was the last time YOU took a field trip?”, the voice should be slightly humorous and thoughtful, intuitive and playful. Since the target audience is children and families, the copy should appeal to kids and the ‘kid at heart’ in adults. The voice should also sound like a friend is talking to them, someone familiar showing them around Flamingo Gardens. Almost a hand-holding type of voice should be heard when reading the type.

Copy & Music The body copy and music alike should make the audience go to an unlimited and magical place of wonder. When you visit Flamingo Gardens, you get a sensory overload of beautiful tropical scenery and animals.The copy and music should only enhance the

emotion of the target audience, helping them to get the sense of “being in another world.”

Tone The tone should be childlike, talking to the child at heart in the audience, whether young or old. “Wanna see how otters play tag?” “Look at the huge crocodile!” “Follow me to see the bird show!” are just a few examples of the tone that should be used for advertisements and signage around the park itself. Using a consistent tone like this will help shape the brand of Flamingo Gardens and tap into the emotions of the audience.

FONTS Visual Voices Flamingo Gardens fonts were chosen to establish the rebranding campaign by providing stability, playfulness, and durability to last well into the future.


FLAMINGO GARDENS STYLE GUIDE

Headline

Filmotype LaSalle

Body copy Gill Sans Regular

Sub headers Gill Sans Bold Italic

Headers / Navigation Gill Sans Light

This font was chosen for its playfulness and attention-grabbing design. The tone of this font is “Hey, look over here!”, like a friend waving for you to hurry over and take a look. The logotype uses this classic font, which was chosen to give a strong and lasting impression for this historical company. The font is used throughout the campaign for brand unity. Gill Sans is a versatile font and ‘Bold Italic’ brings attention to the paragraph heading without distracting the reader from scanning the body copy. The curve and weight of this font resembles a flamingo, and also has an air of curious sophistication. It also does not compete with imagery or other fonts used in the campaign.

FLAMINGO GARDENS STYLE GUIDE

APPROVED IMAGERY Wildlife Images of wildlife should be close enough to distinguish what type of animal it is, and most of its body should be shown. Colors of the animal and its background should clearly contrast, not blending together.

Textures For advertisements and other print collateral, textured backgrounds are another option besides a more busy photograph.The photo of dirt to the left leaves ample space to the left of the leaves for copy placment.The vector sample has a light colored background of tiled leaves which is also acceptable.

could see at Flamingo Gardens. Use single-person shots moderately and more of groups of friends and/ or groups of families having fun together outdoors.

Nature Use shots close enough for the viewer to see the intricacies and details of the beauty of the plants shown. There should also be space for copy in the top third of the photo. In this image of palm leaves, a large heading can be placed in the sky area on the top left corner of the page.

Human Element When images of people are used, opt for waist-up shots where they are smiling in front of a natural outdoor setting with foilage similar to what a visitor
