Sometimes businesses are looking for a Brand Refresh rather than a complete overhaul. This often makes sense if a business has a loyal customer base they don't want to alienate by completely changing their image. Daugherty & Barron was just such a client. They were not unhappy with their existing brand, but felt it could be more polished.
The first thing we discussed is that the actual name of the company "Daugherty & Barron" was not a part of the logo. Other refinements included making the d & b more symmetrical, mirroring each other as the two principal owners are indeed sisters. The + symbol was also a little vague – was it a cross? Turns out that it was and so we decided to make that more apparent. The pale blue also didn't have a lot of impact, so a stronger blue leaning more toward turquoise gives the logo more contrast and creates a more memorable color palette.
The website actually did get a complete overhaul. Before it resided as a free Blogger site that was very bare bones. D+B wanted a more robust and capable site that they and their agents could easily update themselves. Squarespace was the platform of choice and my personal favorite if a client wants a DIY solution for maintenance.
