PH Holt is an independent grant-maker supporting local communities, education, the arts, heritage and environment on Merseyside.
PH Holt was established by Henry Holt, one of the founders of Ocean Steamship Company Ltd in Liverpool, it’s aim was to support a diverse range of causes benefiting the people of Merseyside.
After operating, in it’s modern form since 2006, they felt the time was now right for them to re-develop their brand and they approached us to work with them to achieve this. The team at PH Holt were keen, while retaining some connection to the maritime heritage of the brand, to present the organisation as a forward thinking modern organisation.
The resulting branding we created succeeded in achieving this by incorporating certain heritage elements, such as the rich blue and diagonal shapes, into a fresh contemporary brand. One that contained a strong corporate identity that could stand out when required but one that was able to work alongside other funding logos when required.
We delivered their branding assets together with a comprehensive set of usage guides, for use both internally and for recipients of their support.
