overview

Nina Hendrick inspires and assists women in creating meaningful, intentional homes through simple guidance and encouragement. To become a further trusted resource when it comes to home design, by creating an extensive membership offering, a podcast series, video content and books. To offer guidance in a friendly and relaxed manner, proving home decor + design doesn’t have to be overwhelming. 

Target audience

Women ages 30-40, typically with younger children. Those who are stylish and have good taste but don’t necessarily have the time or know-how to translate that style + taste into their own homes. They aspire to be the go-to spot for gatherings and would love advice from someone they trust on how to put their home together nicely to create a space they truly enjoy. They frequently shop at stores like Target and Anthropologie.

PRIMARY + SECONDARY LOGOs

Nina Hendrick’s needs a brand identity that clearly speaks to her ideal target audience and at the same time conveys a sense of encouragement and attention to detail.

The Nina Hendrick primary logo offers readers a glimpse into what the brand as a whole has to offer; professional and detailed home decor + design posts that are well-thought out, simple and inspiring. The more modern serif creates a classic and refined, yet relaxed and friendly vibe. Paired with the clean lines of the sans serif detailing; the primary logo displays intentional and thoughtful design.

The secondary marks allow for diversity within the brand to be used throughout various brand components — whether in a tagline layout, as a simplified version or as a monogram. The secondary brand illustration represents a vintage keyhole (a 13th century Gothic ornamental lock mounting to be exact) – this pays homage to home decor + design as a whole, but also represents the way Nina welcomes readers / guests into her own home and to be a part of her community (unlocking content via membership).

Overall, the primary logo and secondary marks communicate an inspiring and welcoming vibe, with a nod to the detailed and knowledgable posts + encouraging community that Nina Hendrick will become known for.
