Part of the First Ark Group, their mission is to create success by delivering services which add value and exceed customers’ expectations. Their social purpose means they invest profits straight back into local communities in order to create opportunities and nurture talent, developing jobs, training and apprenticeships for young people.
Vivark works with clients to maximise the value of their property and provide whatever they need to keep operations running smoothly. And they don’t stop there: as a social enterprise, they pledge to always give something back to the wider community.
The overlapping triangles logo marque is an extension of the original First Ark Group identity which O’Connell & Squelch created in 2010. The triangles originally represented two early divisions of the organisation: KHT and KHT Services which merged to form the First Ark Group. Each triangle represented a very subtle F and A, seen overlapping in the logo to create the letter K.
KHT Services later became Vivark and along with a new company within the group, One Ark they made the decision to retain the highly recognisable ‘K’ marque. Elements from the logo are seen daily, decorating a vast fleet of service vehicles.
Two physical forms of the marque have been created to give maximum flexibility across a wide range of applications such as screen printing, engraving, print and digital. The primary marque uses gradients where the single level version uses hatching, allowing the logo to be engraved or embroidered without issues.
We worked in partnership with Vivark over several years creating the majority of the company’s marketing materials with exception of web and digital. The services we provided included: brand creation, brand guidelines, sales literature, annual reports, advertising, photography and a variety graphics and visuals for various uses.
