In conjunction with the launch of their new website, JBAD came to Ibel in 2017 to create a refreshed look for their brand. We kept the basic structure of the square logo while updating the type to a more modern, architectural font. A new color palette, made up of mostly grays, creates a neutral backdrop that emphasizes JBAD’s vibrant building imagery. The orange that was previously incorporated in the brand continues to provide a pop of color to highlight specific information.

Global Fluency Training and the Global Scholars Diploma are programs developed by the Columbus Council on World Affairs to educate professionals and high school students, respectively, on global fluency. The Global Fluency Institute was established by the Council to take these programs national. Ibel Agency developed sub-brands for each to help distinguish these programs and make them easily recognizable. The angular shapes making up an open circle link back to the Council’s brand while limited color palettes help to differentiate each sub-brand. These logos are used on their own and in conjunction with the logos of the local councils that sponsor these educational sessions across the U.S.
