The Landscape Company, is a full service landscape design/build & pool demolition company servicing San Diego and the SoCal region. They bring together the best designers, irrigation and lighting specialists, hardscape and softscape experts and manage teams to seamlessly and beautifully bring any vision to life.

We created and launched the brand identity for The Landscape Company. We developed a sophisticated identity, illustrated in a bold approachable style that includes unique landscape vignettes used as key identifiers within the collateral. Along with the new identity we created a fully-integrated website that provides company information, work samples and testimonials, and connectivity to the company’s CRM platform (ZoHo). Integration support tools include sales and lead generation tracking. We closed with a strategic marketing plan that included launching its social media outreach and a contract partner recruitment program.

StealthGearUSA™ (SGUSA) designs and manufactures premium holsters for concealed firearms carry. They craft every holster from their hand-built molds for each unique concealment demand. Proven in the field by professionals and civilians alike, their gear is also employed by military units the world over.

Stitch Marketing & Research lead by Nate Heckman, partnered with MHC to help SGUSA reimagine itself as it made the transition thru early product success. Stitch’s brand immersion workshops covered all aspects of SGUSA’s business, including brand development, production, packaging, marketing and product development. The research captured key points and areas to put focus. From this we developed the creative brief, a document that outlined the initial direction for building the new identity.

We delivered a new logo and identity package that included the tagline creation “Made Ready”. With the foundation in place we then created product labels and packaging, sub-brand logo marks, set photography guidelines, and provided graphic and marketing support for the new product and brand launch.
