Blink Vision by Veatch is an optometry practice in North Liberty. It has built a reputation for proactive eye health, expert vision care, and exemplary customer service. Dr. Veatch and his team came to FUEL looking for a partner who could realign their visual branding and expression to be more reflective of the delightful patient experience and take their practice to the next level.
With some minor adjustments, FUEL brought clarity and balance to the original logo in a way that offered greater flexibility moving forward.
The brand refresh began by revisiting a drab set of colors that was not true to the spirit of Blink’s staff. Crisp whites, blues and greens were used to infuse vitality both in store and online.
Graphically, FUEL used a blend of photography, typography, and illustration to not only inform, but to convey approachability throughout the patient experience.
The brand strategy was carried through to social media to create consistency across digital touchpoints.
Websites are living things and the current evolution reflects a streamlined approach to its UX. It was built upon the WordPress content management system to bring future flexibility to the build. Visually, the current site maintains green as a dominant color, but sets it against a warmer neutral canvas to further Blink’s connection between patients and extraordinary service.
Imagery is authentic, approachable, and sets the expectation for a delightful patience experience every time you visit Blink.
