NHVic has been working alongside a professional graphic designer to refresh our visual identity. 

Aim of the project

To provide our peak body and the broader Neighbourhood House sector with a fresh, modern and flexible contemporary visual brand - while retaining its unique identity.


This project is a key action of our Communications and Marketing Strategy, but has been delayed over the last couple of years due to the pandemic. We are very excited to finally see it progress.

During consultation for the strategy back in 2019, a member survey told us that 77 per cent of respondents favoured the ‘Heart House’ as a concept, and of those respondents, 78 per cent favoured a refresh or update of that concept.

The current 'Heart House' has been in place for at least 15 years which means it has become a well-established and recognisable symbol, however visual design has advanced and therefore, so must brands.

Even the world's most recognisable brands get a 'face lift' every few years in order to remain relevant with the times, without losing their core identity. Here are just some examples of that progression:

We aim to deliver a similar approach with this project.

The concepts

We have developed four refreshed 'Heart House' concepts for consideration.

We want to know what you think!

You will be asked to rank the four concepts in preference, with the top being your most preferred concept, and the bottom being your least preferred concept.
