In my role as a Marketing Communications Specialist at FHQ Developments, I recently had the incredible opportunity to work on a series of logo designs for Peepeekisis Development Limited (PDL), in collaboration with their various partners. What began as a project for two logos quickly blossomed into six distinct and meaningful logo packages that now represent the essence of PDL and its subsidiaries.
1. Miwasin Development Group Logo:
Miwasin, which means "it is good" in Cree, symbolizes the positive direction PDL is heading. This logo merges the traditional PDL drum with the flowing form of a river, a tribute to their partnership with Steel River Group. It's a visual embodiment of their commitment to both on and off-reserve development projects.
2. Awa Management Group Logo:
Awa Management Group's logo reflects their specialization in industrial construction. The steely grey palette captures the industrial essence of their services, conveying strength and reliability.
3. Peepeekisis Development Limited Logo:
Inspired by the success of the first two logos, PDL decided to revamp their corporate identity. The sleek and modern design mirrors their innovative and forward-thinking approach to economic development.
4. Buffalo Hill Gas & Convenience Logo:
Buffalo Hill Gas & Convenience, a newly opened establishment, aims to serve Peepeekisis Cree Nation and surrounding communities. The logo combines a buffalo and a gas nozzle, effectively communicating the range of offerings in a vibrant and eye-catching manner.
5. Peepeekisis Funeral Home Logo:
The gold-embellished logo for Peepeekisis Funeral Home exemplifies their deep commitment to honoring Indigenous funeral rights. This establishment, a development by Miwasin Development Group, exudes a sense of respect and dignity.
6. Let's Eat Logo:
Let's Eat, an integral part of Buffalo Hill Gas & Convenience, is a full-sized commercial kitchen offering fresh, diverse menus and catering services. The logo seamlessly connects to its parent company, sharing its vibrant and inviting aura.
As an Indigenous Graphic Designer, I am immensely honored to contribute my passion for art and design to support PDL's economic development endeavors. These logos aren't just symbols; they are the visual representation of PDL's values, ambitions, and dedication to their community and partners. Each design tells a unique story, and together, they form a cohesive narrative of growth, innovation, and cultural respect.
In the ever-evolving landscape of economic development, logos serve as powerful brand ambassadors, and I am confident that these logos will stand the test of time, leaving an indelible mark on PDL and its partners. It has been a privilege to be part of this journey, and I look forward to seeing these logos become iconic symbols of success and progress for years to come.
