The New Approach to Growing Non-Profit Membership & New Sponsors - Branding & Corporate Identity
In this phase of the project, our team of brand architects and strategists analyzed the overall vision and mission of the community-based non-profit and dove into research mode. We reviewed elements of competitor SWOT analysis, market research, KYC (know your customer), persona development, user journey design, and positioning in the market. Our unique perspective and combined experience offered a wide range of options with a very focused approach. Check out some of the work below:
Our corporate identity kits include elements such as business card printing, branded notebook designs, branded backpack designs, sales and investor pitch presentation designs, branded pens and sweatshirts and more! Swag is definitely a great way to make a grand impression!
We designed and printed custom branded printed materials for event galas, fundraising events and local outreach campaigns.
As a Non-Profit Focused on the Arts, the Website Re-Design & Development Had to Reflect Creativity and Innovation in Design
As a trusted partner to the non-profit sector, our custom wordpress design and development services were a great fit for ArtsFairfax. Our goal was to highlight the programs, services and events as well as opportunities to get involved, donate, and support the arts.
