“Matt and the Proof team were excellent through every step of the branding process. Their vision and creativity for Vintage South – and the Stocking 51 development project, was exactly what we were looking for. They were timely and excellent communicators throughout the process. I highly recommend their creative design services.”

Nathan Lyons | Owner, Vintage South Development

“Proof has worked with us through two iterations of our website over the last 10 years, most recently with more emphasis on our overall brand and message. The entire process was collaborative, and Proof continually went above and beyond to ensure that everything looked great, but more importantly, to guarantee that all the moving parts worked well.”

THE MONROE

The Monroe is a luxury apartment community in the Germantown neighborhood of downtown Nashville. Opening in 2017, The Monroe is another example of Nashville’s skyrocketing population, that also preserves the integrity of the surrounding historical neighborhood.

Seeking to create a space that felt like part of the Historic Germantown community, Proof worked to develop a name for the property and a comprehensive suite of deliverables including logo/visual identity, interior/exterior signage and artwork, website, and print/promotional materials. From top to bottom, Proof led every step of the creative process with the Price Development Group team with support from Lincoln Property Company.
