When a Logo is More Than a Logo

In the seed business, your logo and seed cap are your calling card. Midwest Seed Genetics knows this as well as anyone. After an eleven year absence from the market, Midwest Seed was back. And what started as a simple logo refresh from HenkinSchultz, not only became a certified seed hat hit – but a company wide rallying cry. The logo in its new form is a nod to their history, pulling four diamond shapes from the original design. The diamonds represent plots of American farmland and the yellow symbolizes “the home 40.” Assembled together, they also resemble a horizontal…

Expanded Services Call for an Expanded Marketing Plan

One of the most crucial decisions any business can face is how to go about expanding their service options.
