Kolbeco Wins Communicator Award of Distinction

July 28, 2009 Firm Recognized for Original Wine Country Gardens Logo Design and Development

Kolbeco Marketing Resources was recently awarded a Communicator Award of Distinction as part of the 15th Annual Communicator Awards. Kolbeco was recognized for their original logo design for Wine Country Gardens in Defiance, Mo.

Kolbeco was hired by Wine Country Gardens to develop a new company logo that captured the unique essence and service offerings of the venue. Wine Country Gardens is a destination experience featuring a 42-acre nursery and farm overlooking the Missouri River Valley surrounded by patios, ponds, waterfalls and display gardens with a Patio Café and Wine Garden.

Prior to developing the logo, Kolbeco conducted research which indicated that the target audience was not identifying with the full range of services offered at Wine Country Gardens.

“Designing a new logo for Wine Country Gardens was an important step in distinctly communicating all of the services offered at Wine Country Gardens,” Lauren Kolbe, President of Kolbeco said. “Our goal is to find the most creative and effective way to promote our clients’ brand.”
