Postologie (post-ol-uh-jee)

Portland, Oregon
Postologie is a new classified and community website for the West Coast, including California, Oregon, Washington, and close surrounding areas. Postologie seeks to create a safe and honest classified platform through close member and listing moderation.

Project

Type: Brand / Website / Collateral
BRAND DESIGN

For the brand, Postologie wanted a casual, friendly, and distinctly West Coast feel that didn’t favor any one particular region. Blue, greens, and beige colors were chosen for the palette, with a primary turquoise/cyan hue.

The logo is an insignia style used in three forms: minimal, simple, and extended, with each utilizing various taglines and descriptors, as illustrated below.

WEBSITE

The primary site is divided into three parent regions – California, Oregon, and Washington –  which are further divided into localized sub-regions. Each region and sub-region feature comprehensive classified listings and community features, complete with ratings, payment options, user profiles, listing maps, and more.

One of the main website features Postologie requested was location-based header imagery on the homepage. So viewers in Washington, for example, will see only Washington related imagery, and so forth. This would create a more local feel, which is important when building a community-based resource.

The location-based subsites feature comprehensive listing options, including geolocation, SMS notifications, advanced search, customized user profiles, categorized taxonomies, interactive listing maps, secure and hidden contact options, spam protection, payment features with add-ons, and much more.

COLLATERAL

Bright and airy double-sided business cards were designed for pre-launch distribution. The cards feature the same imagery displayed within the website’s header to create a sense of uniformity.
