When the team at SOPMed Training asked me to design a custom swag box for their annual offsite, I jumped at the chance to get creative. I wanted to include gifts that would make their employees feel special and show that the team at SOPMed Training values them.
After a few brainstorming sessions, the team and I landed on a few ideas that would perfectly combine the inspirational theme with the chosen location of Traverse City, MI. The swag items included a co-branded Carhartt beanie, inspirational notebook and pen, teamwork keychain and die cut award ribbon stickers. We also added little surprises like hand warmers and a mini fireball shot to give it an extra special touch.

What to Include in the Swag Box for SOPMed Training
As a creative consultant in the swag and promotional world, I understand how important it is to wow your customers with a unique and memorable brand experience. That’s why, when designing the swag box for SOPMed Training, we were determined to make sure it was as special and impactful as possible.
To create an unforgettable gifting experience, we decided to add some unique twists––like die cut stickers with inspirational messages, plus all the necessary winter items that SOPMed will need for their annual offsite activities––a Carhartt beanie, hand warmers and fireball. The beanie was co-branded with the team logos to give it an extra special touch.
We wanted to ensure our client was getting their money’s worth, so we designed a cost-effective format that allowed us to include both high quality items and locally sourced products from the SOPMed Training region. In the end, we created a swag box that was effective at promoting their team goals without diminishing its quality or budget.
Design Elements to Consider for the Co-Branded Logo
When designing the co-branded logo, the team wanted to include elements that included the offsite theme and also highlighted that SOPMed Training is a Michigan based company. Sometimes simplicity is genius, so the we kept the logo design simple and straightforward.
In an effort to be inclusive of all team members, we added the two team logos to each side of the design and then added a few Michigan elements to tie in the theme. The Michigan elements included a beanie from the local brand Carhartt, adding the tagline “Made in the Mitten” and the outline of Michigan with a placed heart to represent the office location.
