Encourage mothers to get sealants for their children and reduce childhood cavities.

Creating & Updating a Company Logo: How We Did It

Choosing the right logo and color palette for your business can be just as important as choosing the right name. Your logo is often the first thing people think of when they think of your company. In late 2018, HenkinSchultz (aka HS) updated their brand standards – including the logo icon as well as the colors. The goal of updating our brand was to make HS look more fun and approachable. The signature ‘HS’ remains – you won’t find that font anywhere online. Originally designed by Kirby Schultz and another HS designer, it represents more traditional art and less of…

What Has Changed, What Will Never Change

Design. It’s a topic that inspires a lot of healthy debate. In the advertising business, the tools of design have changed through the years. Does anyone remember a T-square or pica ruler? Software is ever evolving and they way consumers view design has changed too. Think about the difference between a full-page magazine ad and a tiny Google display ad. HenkinSchultz has always been obsessed with a design. And we have a diverse group of exceptional designers that bring different skills to our work. So we thought it would be a fun idea to hear, in their own words, what…

Think. Bigger. Where Art and Strategic Thinking Meet.

HenkinSchultz has always worked with clients to help them make a big impression – both to their customers and their own employees. Like all businesses, we need to stop and take a look at ourselves too. Until recently, when we looked at our massive HS Sign Shop wall, we saw only gray concrete. The Origin of Think. Bigger. HS has tackled some pretty monumental visual displays. Still, we know we couldn’t carve Mount Rushmore in our basement. But you better believe we could print it. And that’s exactly what we did. President Kirby Schultz summarizes our long-term agency philosophy as…
