West Cumbria Credit Union

Posted on

We recently worked with John Bailey on a re-design for the West Cumbria Credit Union logo. We designed their original logo many years ago for ‘Allerdale Credit Union’, the name has since changed to ‘West Cumbria Credit Union’ so they felt it was time for a re-brand and a logo re-design.

John wanted an instantly recognisable logo, incorporating the fells and water to represent the Lake District. Daniel was working on this project and after much consideration he opted for an outline of Blencathra Saddleback, utilising green and blue shades to represent the fells and water. He selected a clean, modern typeface, adding a touch of italics to ‘West’ to add emphasis.

John wanted to include the website address within the logo, so we added that underneath and we added round corners to the whole logo to soften the look.

John and the team were really pleased with the final logo, it will be used online as well as on all printed promotional material. He tweeted about the project, saying “15 years working with Firpress and they still compete on cost, give top quality advice and deliver on time. First Class visuals … always!”
