Light Rail Café prides itself in being a locally owned and operated company that uses quality processes and locally sourced ingredients. They needed an identity to help get their customers as excited about their products as they were.
Blue Note created an identity in which Light Rail’s values were front and center. The complementary logo designs were created to be the foundation of an identity that left no question about Light Rail’s story. Through boldly stylized value statements and imagery inspired by the history of Light Rail’s location, Light Rail’s customers now know exactly what they stand for.
When local startup Shepherd Firearms needed to dress up their new business, they came to Blue Note. We created an iconic logo in flexible formats so it is usable in any size layout and helped them establish a consistent visual identity to give all of their products and marketing a unified and memorable look.
The Garden is the place to be in Winona Lake every summer, so when it was time to update their identity they knew they needed to work with Blue Note. It took extensive research (including a few drinks while sitting on a boat) but in the end, we created a unique identity inspired by the sun and the waters of Winona.
Design Outreach is a not-for-profit whose mission is to create and deliver life-transforming solutions for poor and under-served communities. Blue Note was proud to partner with them in developing a logo to be the backbone of their identity. Find out more by visiting doutreach.org
Kosciusko County Velo
KCV (Kosciusko County Velo) Cycling Club is a local organization dedicated to enhancing our community through cycling. They organize Fat & Skinny Tire Fest every years and do a ton of other work partnering with local government and organizations to make sure that cycling is easy and safe in K-County.
Blue Note is very proud to have helped them update their identity and brand and are excited to see how the work we did with them will better empower them to make a difference in this great community.
Beer is good. Local beer is better. Blue Note helped a local home brewer give his beer an identity, and got honorable mention in BYO's label design contest in the process. If you are ever in Winona Lake and see a bunch of people drinking beer and standing around a kettle, chances are they are brewing Skidmark at Loud House.
When the owner of OsteoShape saw another company with the same logo as his at a trade show, he realized that the logo he bought at a discount logo-farm website wasn’t enough to differentiate his company from the competition. That’s when he hired Blue Note.
Unlike budget logo websites that pull icons and type from a catalog of clipart, Blue Note got to know the OsteoShape business. We worked with OsteoShape to create a unique and customized logo that captures OsteoShape’s personality and what they do best. And we paired the logo with a unique and memorable identity, giving OsteoShape a look that will help start the conversation with their customers.
Oak & Alley
Jason Bodley’s cocktails have become a staple of the Warsaw bar scene, so when he started Oak & Alley he came to Blue Note to help give his bar as much of a kick as the drinks he serves. Through asking questions and getting to know his passion and vision, we helped form a brand direction to make his bar the most fun place to have a drink in Northern Indiana. We also developed a visual identity with as much personality as the bar, and as unique as their cocktails.
At Blue Note, we like good beer. And the best beer in town is brewed by the Kettleheads Homebrew Club. We like the club so much, we helped them develop an identity to help get the word out about their passion for giving back to the community and great beer.
Green Earth Multisport
When a few local triathalon enthusiasts decided to start a multi sports store, they knew that they needed to go to Blue Note to help them get off on the right foot with their identity. From logo to signage, Blue Note helped GEM make the right first impression with its clients.
