June 22, 2007 – Mullin/Ashley Associates, Inc. is providing creative support for the marketing and promotional efforts of The Historical Society of Kent County. To date, the agency’s pro bono support has included designing the Society’s new logo as well as other communications elements such as a stationery package, a completely new design for the Society’s newsletter, plus new promotional literature to be displayed at local businesses and tourist sites throughout the region.
According to Marlayn King, Mullin/Ashley’s creative director, The Historical Society of Kent County wished to freshen and update its visual identity. “The new logo incorporates an antique key symbol which we’ve also made work visually with the Society’s name. We’ve introduced a palette of new accent colors. Our design allows the logo art to reproduce equally well in color or black-and-white format,” she reported.
As part of its support, Mullin/Ashley has also designed new promotional literature that will be displayed in local businesses, as well as at State of Maryland welcome centers plus other tourism and hospitality locations throughout Maryland and Delaware. The brochure features information on the Geddes-Piper House Museum in Chestertown’s historical district. The Geddes-Piper House also serves as the Society’s office and library.
A new rack display card and illustration promoting the Society’s 37th annual Tea Time House Tour, scheduled this year for Saturday, October 6th, has also been developed.
Based in Chestertown, Maryland, The Historical Society of Kent County is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit membership organization. Its mission is to propagate the preservation of Kent County’s rich history, as well as to assist visitors and residents in their historical research endeavors. The Society organizes and participates in numerous activities and events throughout the year relating to the history and culture of Kent County and surrounding jurisdictions.
According to Phillip Nones, president of Mullin/Ashley Associates, the work performed for the Historical Society of Kent County reflects the agency’s commitment to support valuable community efforts by providing creative and marketing resources on a pro bono basis. “The Society’s activities and programs embody the vital efforts being made to educate people in the local community and throughout the region about the rich history of Kent County,” he said. “This is a very worthwhile mission that deserves everyone’s support.”
