Partnership Health Center (PHC)

As a leading provider of high quality, inclusive, and affordable healthcare in Western Montana, Partnership Health Center (PHC) needed a strong, bright, and welcoming approach to their branding. The Gecko team worked with stakeholders at PHC to establish a mark and brand guide that would move their organization into the future. Check it out!

The Mark

PHC was on a mission to develop a brand that reflected their community. As a provider of high quality care to members of all backgrounds, including the LGBTQ+ community, the joyful and symbolic nature of the rainbow became a recurring theme. The mark itself is intended to both symbolize the medical cross and a colorful, playful butterfly. The butterfly is seen in many traditions as a representation of renewal, hope, and betterment; all principles in PHC’s work and mission.

In order to set PHC apart from other organizations in the area using “Partnership” in their names, we strove to establish a typeset that incorporated the strength of PHC’s initialism. The multiple typesets provided give the client the ability to transition their company from “Partnership Health Center” to “PHC” over the next several years.

The mark itself can be used in a multitude of ways. PHC will utilize single gradient color variations of the mark to represent each of their four service lines; medical, dental, behavioral health, and pharmacy.

The Gecko team took great pride in crafting a strong, clean, fun, and welcoming brand for such a integral community partner. We’re excited to see their organization thrive for many years to come. In the gallery below you will find digital and print materials utilized by PHC in and around Western Montana.

After struggling for hours on a website problem I called Gecko Designs for help. They were able to fix my problem in just a few minutes and I was up and running. It's just so great to find a company that is professional, helpful, and easy to work with. I feel like I have a new partner in my business. These guys are the best.

Working with the team at Gecko Designs has been an absolute pleasure. Their team was incredibly easy to work with throughout every step of the process from initial brainstorming efforts and creative design, to development, and finally launch of the website. They were quick to respond to any questions I threw their way and always willing to work with me to find new and creative solutions for design challenges.

Could never reach them on the phone. Over promised and under delivered. They promise coaching and education but never follow thru.

Gecko built us a new Unity Hospice website from the ground up, as well as designing new brochures and other collateral material. Working with them has been a pleasure - they are professional, organized, responsive, aim to please, and are easy to work with. Their design work is beautiful, and they really took pains to understand the look we were going for. Highly recommended!
