TIMELESS BRANDING

Our partnership with Lake View Cemetery began with rebranding. We worked with the cemetery to understand the history and cultural significance of its storied grounds as well as its modern role as an active place of interment. The concept of blending the old with the new laid the foundation for the timeless new identity and powerful brand.

A Nod to the Times

Our logo design for Lake View Cemetery was inspired by a combination of the Cemetery's popular "Daffodil Hill" and the architectural ornaments of the master Italian stone carvers responsible for many of the Cemetery's most recognizable monuments. We aimed to create a timeless logo that is reminiscent of the past, a part of the present, and will remain relevent for generations to come.

Self-Guided Virtual Tours

Our series of self-guided virtual tours for Lake View are designed to work on any mobile device as well as desktop computers. The tours invite visitors on the cemetery grounds – or those visiting virtually from afar – to explore the stories, history, and monuments of Lake View.

On mobile devices, the tours are location-aware to provide realtime guidance and route suggestions that lead guests to points of interest throughout the cemetery's 285 acres. The experience features 360° panoramas, highlighted route, GPS tracking, walk/drive times, voice over narration, interactive 3D satellite maps, historical photos, and textual content – all beautifully branded to reflect the Lake View look and feel.

DIGITAL PRESENCE

Our website strategy and design for Lake View is as powerful as it is beautiful. Visitors are guided through a funnel to inquire, register for events, purchase tickets, and donate to campaigns. With clean design on the front end and user-friendly CMS tools running behind the scenes, Lake View's online presence is both on-brand and evergreen.

Preserving History

We were overdue to express a timeless brand rooted in tradition yet open, active and modern. FORM helped us create a misperception-busting identity that has been measurably embraced by our constituencies.”

Lake View Cemetery

We chose a color palette for the brand that reflects the peaceful atmosphere, stone, and metalwork of the 150-year old garden cemetery. Our series of printed collateral such as street pole banners, biannual magazine, annual report, and seasonal tourism guides all carry the unified tone of the brand.

We created graphcial brand elements to enhance the new identity, such as the "daffodil lace," a distinctive pattern created by repeating the logo; this pattern brings a nod to the era in which the grounds were built while also serving as a contemporary embellishment.

Visualizing Impact

We designed Lake View's Annual Report to demonstrate the outcomes of their donor's generosity; our art direction of seasonal photo shoots allowed us to build a modern, vibrant photo library to help the Cemetery tell their story through imagery. 

Beauty in all things

Even the most utlitarian brand elements express a sense of beauty and history, such as our redesign of the Lake View Cemetery visitor map.
