What did Somo need?

Mariano helped Somo elevate their visual identity with a new or refreshed logo, or other design choices such as colors, font styles, and graphics that reflect their mission and vision.

Why is this project important?

Somo partners with entrepreneurs from low-income communities to build self-sustaining, high-impact businesses, providing them with the training, mentorship, capital and market access they need to succeed. We are based in Nairobi, Kenya but now are moving to Mexico City. Our local Hub will be under the brand of La Chispa, meaning "The Spark" in Spanish. For this new branch we need to create a memorable brand with a memorable logo. We are looking for a designer to create a logo and potentially other branding material to go along with it.

This project will save us $4,817, allowing us to Invest in a new social impact startups.

Mariano was amazing. We were really impressed by his level of professionalism and his ability to create a brand that was fit impeccably for our needs.

About Somo

SOMO is the root of a Swahili word meaning "lesson". We are called SOMO because we all have lessons to learn from each other. Visionary entrepreneurs exist in informal settlements around the world.

SOMO identifies, trains, funds, and mentors entrepreneurs looking to drive social change by building enterprises in their own low-income urban communities. We invest in social entrepreneurs and provide the training and tools to help them build enterprises that change their communities from within. By investing in the right people, we help break the cycle of poverty and help bring long-term stability to urban slum areas.
