When Doug Flugum and Jon Cushing started their information managment technology services company in 1999, they asked us to help develop their name, logo, and brand identity. We came up with a bold, colorful solution that connected the dots in the “i’s” to symbolize information and data sharing. The printed materials feature the five dots from the logo, subtly repeated in the background, to create a pattern unique to Tektivity. 

We developed a series of sales flyers that could be easily printed in-house, because they were designed without bleeds (i.e. ink printing to the edge of the paper). Because the benefits of Information Technology (IT) and data services are difficult for people to grasp, we created flyers that featured bold, colorful images to represent how Tektivity let businesses focus on what they do best: their business. That's an idea that everyone could understand.

We designed several Christmas cards for Tektivity that playfully replaced the five circles in the logo with ornaments and Christmas lights. We also created large banners that quickly explained what Tektivity does, boldly using the green and blue corporate colors and the subtle dotted background pattern.

And nothing says “forward-thinking company” quite like a black Scion zooming down the road with a gigantic logo plastered diagonally across both sides. And the best part? Doug and John at Tektivity did this in conjunction with our creative partners at Signs Etc., years after we developed the look and feel of their brand identity for them!

Tektivity has acquired five businesses since 2005 and they continue to grow. They are now the IT department or primary IT support for hundreds of businesses throughout Iowa.
