Dalton Cooperative Preschool Identity

Local Dalton Cooperative Nursery School was lacking a visual identity of its own. In fact, it just happened that another local preschool was using the same generic preschool logo — time to differentiate!

Our design utilizes the school building’s unique shape as the foundation for a one-of-a-kind logo.

We also created a new website for the school — a reference for current and future families alike. Slowly, slowly, we are becoming comfortable with (really) basic web work! Here’s a screenshot:

Pinnacle Prevention Identity

We are proud to have collaborated with a new Arizona-based business, Pinnacle Prevention, to develop their branding and business cards! (Have you heard of Pinnacle Peak? Neither had I!) Pinnacle Prevention offers services promoting healthy eating and active living for individuals and the larger community, with a focus on pediatric wellbeing.

The design uses stylized Ps (hooray for alliteration!) to form a pinwheel — a symbol of childhood, breath, and outdoor activity. We also developed the company’s tag line.

A Glowing Review

The client for whom we recently designed a 20-page teacher portfolio book was so kind to write about her experience working with inklings design. I confess, this made my day:

Erin Murphy [of inklings design studio] is a phenomenal designer and can make your dreams come true. I am in education and wanted to replace my 80s version, 3 ring binder, portfolio to a modern, slick, mini-portfolio that was like a snapfish book. I wanted it to be “consumable.” In other words, I would be able to give it to a principal, or parent to keep. She not only saw what I wanted but knew exactly how to make it happen. She was patient with my confusing time line and many revisions as I added or removed content. The following year when I wanted to update, she was able to advise how to do that economically and practically. Everyone is impressed with the final product. I feel it is more than I imagined and I feel fortunate to have found such a gifted person. When you hire Erin Murphy you are guaranteed success!

A Sunny Teacher Portfolio

I had no idea that a teacher portfolio was a thing until I was asked to design one. Our client was returning to teaching after having left the field for a bit, and needed a platform to showcase her teaching experience and philosophy. This 8-inch square, 20-page portfolio book worked perfectly for her — she quickly landed a teaching gig! — and the books she distributed gained lots of positive commentary.

This portfolio book was organized around the Five Core Propositions from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, and incorporated her résumé, letters of recommendation, a classroom plan, and sunshiny kid photos. The books were distributed to schools within a specific Florida county, and the school’s colors were chosen as the predominant colors in the design. It was a great, successful project!

Here is an awesome rotating image showing all pages of the book.

And here is the cover and a few select pages.
