Many people dream of living on the shore, especially in retirement. But owning property on the coast can be, expensive. Masonicare, a premium senior living and care organization, had an opportunity to build a brand new senior rental community in the charming shoreline town of Mystic, Connecticut. But, how could Masonicare attract residents to this exciting new community while it was still in the planning stages?

Brand Identity (Logo) 

Brand Identity (Logo) 

Brand Identity (Logo) 

Inspired by beautiful sunrises and seagulls, the brand identity caputures the ‘romance’ of shoreline living while keeping within Masonicare’s existing brand guidelines. The circular shape is reminiscent of the sun, while two pillars, representing independent and assisted living, are connected by a seagull to form the letter M (symbolizing Masonicare and Mystic). The identity serves as the brand face for Masonicare at Mystic’s marketing efforts and continues to embody the spirit of this premier shoreline senior living community.

Using volunteers from some of Masonicare’s existing communities as models, (everyone signed a model release) we documented and photographed their day exploring many of the area attractions, including the shops on the main street, Mystic Seaport, Mystic Aquarium, and the apartment model in the sales office. The photography is used as the main visuals for the website and marketing materials.

 Valuable insights were gained from each volunteer about their experience and what they loved about the area – many wanted to live here once construction was complete! These insights provided a first hand view of our target audience’s thoughts and behaviors which help drive the content for sales and marketing communications.

Keeping the website user friendly was a top priority. Visitors will always be one click away from the information they are seeking. To accomplish this, a vertical bar contains the navigation, call to action, and up coming events - all of which were fixed (always present) no mater where a visitor was on the website.

 A key feature built into the website allows each visitor to increase or decrease the type size on the website, depending on their preference. This is especially important for visitors with visual impairments.
