YVDP supports healthy communities in Routt and Moffat counties by facilitating community discussions and regional forums based on indicator data and issues critical to the community.

Shops at 9th Avenue is an antique and design market located in the Golden Triangle. For the past 15 years, they have been a source for decorating and design, with an assortment of antiques, furnishings, lighting, rugs, original and decorative arts. In early 2013, it was time for The Collection to update their brand, to appeal to a younger demographic. With the opening of another store named The Collection in the Denver Design District, it was decided that a new name and identity would help eliminate confusion regarding the unique layout of the store.
The focus behind the new identity was to modernize the current logo by modifying the color palette and proportions to highlight the fleur de lis symbol. The client was committed to both the yellow and the symbol and was hesitant to abandon the imagery that she had been using for 15 years. By combining a more sophisticated color palette of ochre and charcoal and simplifying the fleur de lis, we were able to revamp the identity while maintaining a tie to the original.
