We’ve been reflecting on how our community has grown to just over 185K members, and evolving our brand look and feel. As some of you will know, TrustedHousesitters has been through many brand refreshes over the last 10+ years, and we wanted to share our latest one with you all here on the forum… and announce a chance for you to win a digital pet portrait in our new illustration style!
This post is just a sneak peek of things to come - such as our new colour palette (and new pet-centric colour names! Fun fact: ‘Meredith Mint’ was named after a member of Team Trusted’s own feline friend, Meredith!). You can find out more about our brand refresh (and see how we’ve evolved over the years!) by reading our blog post here:
(Paws up, does anyone remember the little black Lab logo from 2010?!).
The main reason we’re making these changes is so the brand can reflect the spirit of our community and bring to life the amazing connections, joy, and adventures you all enjoy on our platform. We love hearing your stories and seeing first-hand how impactful the connections between people and pets truly are - and it felt like our brand needed to match the radical optimism we felt from our community.
Some things will be sticking around, such as “Trusty”, our much-loved logo, and rest assured, nothing will be changing with your membership offering.
The eagle-eyed amongst you might have already seen some of these new colours and illustrations sneaking into a handful of our member emails, but the team will be rolling out updates across our website, app, emails, and social channels over the next couple of months. We’ll also be sharing this in our monthly member newsletter, going out later today (Tuesday 7th November).
To celebrate our brand refresh, we’re launching a GIVEAWAY where five lucky members will win a personalised digital pet portrait in our new illustration style, along with a £/$50 donation to their pet charity of choice!
How to enter: They say a change is as good as a holiday! To celebrate the changes we’re making, we’d love to hear about a special pet that changed you for the better! This could be a new four-pawed pal from a recent sit, your current furry family member, or even a special animal friend from your childhood.
Simply share a photo of them along with a few words about why this pet left such a pawprint on your heart in this forum topic by Tuesday 14th Nov 23:59 pm for your chance to win. Good luck!
