HAMPTON, NH (October 25, 2018) – In celebration of its 10th anniversary and more than $1 million donated to organizations that support its mission since 2014, Operation Hat Trick (OHT) announces a refinement of its visual identity. Working with IMG College Licensing (IMGCL), OHT has updated its brand style guide and supporting graphics to help strengthen the OHT brand while streamlining visual elements that reinforce its mission of generating awareness and support.
Visual identify updates include refining the OHT 5 Star logo and logo with tagline, as well as Operation Hat Trick word marks. Additionally, IMGCL created camouflage patterns that are unique to OHT for use in products and marketing collateral. The product hangtag, which shares the OHT story and mission with consumers and is applied to all OHT merchandise, was also updated.
“For the last 10 years, OHT logos have been placed alongside the marks of top sports brands and organizations that have partnered with us to make a difference in the lives of service members and veterans recovering from visible and invisible injuries,” said Dot Sheehan, Founder and CEO of Operation Hat Trick. “Our refined marks and camo pattern will help reinforce our unique brand messaging and further define our mission with our partners and in the marketplace.”
Operation Hat Trick, a 501c3 organization, increases awareness, support and funding for the recovery of wounded service members and veterans through the sale of branded merchandise, proceeds of which are distributed to selected organizations that support OHT’s mission.
“OHT sets the standard for purchases with a purpose, and we are proud to help them further develop their brand and licensing program,” stated Brian White, IMGCL’s Vice President of Partner Services/New Business Development. “As a long-time partner and supporter of OHT, we are committed to helping them fulfill their inspiring mission.”
