We have just finished up creating a new logo (above) for ‘Hot Stoves’ one of Northern Ireland’s premier stove centres. Based in Co. Armagh ‘Hot Stoves’ is a family run company who pride themselves on commitment and promise to guarantee professional advice, choice and service. With having hands on knowledge of their stoves and flue products they can offer the best solution for your home and value for money installations. They work with the likes of Contura, Chesney, Dean Forge, Dru, Spartherm, Termatech, Town & Country and Woodwarm.
Rodney Strain, Hot Stoves CEO, scouted Brightbulb Design Ltd via twitter after he had seen a tweet regarding branding we had produced for Morph ICT. He was so impressed with the branding that he decided to ask us to help him in rebranding his company. Brightbulb Design Ltd have a fair amount of knowledge when it comes to the stove industry from our many years working with Charnwood Stoves, Isle of Wight manufacturers of some of the finest multi-fuel & wood burning stoves in the UK, so this was right up our street.
As with all branding exercises there is always a fair amount of back and forth between the designer and client before a final design is settled on. Hot Stoves is no exception and we worked hard together to create a brand that would work across all platforms including; web, shop and van signage. During the creation of the logo there are several stages involved, including research, initial concepts, revisions, colour variations and final tweaks. We don’t settle until the client is 100% happy with their new branding. After all, that branding will need to last for years to come.
Sometimes its a shame to never see the work behind a final logo and all the other logos that were once upon a time in contention to become a companies new branding. So we thought it would be great for you to see some of the other designs that did not make the final cut.
The final design as seen at the top of the page and colour variation below, was chosen due to it having a contemporary edge with the clean lines and simplistic style. The branding will be pushed out across marketing materials and website over the coming weeks. We look forward to seeing how the brand evolves and develops over the coming years.
