Bur Oak Land Trust

Designing a Better View of Nature

Bur Oak Land Trust recently went through an identity update and engaged Creative Mellen to further enhance the overall brand, including redesigning their semi-annual magazine. We helped refine the magazine design to utilize new colors, brand assets and fonts consistently across all articles.


Engaging readers to the importance of Iowa’s habitat.

New Brand Implementation
Design & Layout
Printer Setup

The goal of the magazine redesign was to create a consistent and professional layout that highlights the needs of Iowa’s natural habitat in eastern Iowa.

Creative Mellen helped expand the color palette of the brand to be bright and engaging. The colors and consistent use of fonts are used throughout to bring emphasis to pertinent information and guide the reader through the important work of Bur Oak. The featured photography, use of negative space, and brand-specific woodcut accents further engage readers throughout the magazine.

This new structure and layout help refine the new brand to be more consistent and recognizable for future communications.
