Best Branding Award: Beauty Bar MD at OC Dermatology

best-of-med-2015When dermatologist Lorrie Klein, MD, opened Beauty Bar MD—a skincare center adjacent to her private practice, OC Dermatology—she wanted to create a logo that reinforced the facility’s goals: To help women feel more confident and simplify their lives by providing them with just a few, great skincare products. The black and white logo prominently features the facility’s name accented by black and white stripes, mirroring Beauty Bar MD’s simple but elegant décor. The logo is featured on everything—from business cards and letterhead to pens, membership cards, signage, marketing materials and even postprocedure ice packs. “We wanted Beauty Bar MD to be a stand-alone product, separate from OC Dermatology,” says Dr. Klein. “It’s contemporary in design, and also elegant and balanced, which is how we like to think of ourselves.”
