Brand Messaging


This project is

In Progress

Matched with:

Rashi C.

This project will save us $6,000, allowing us to devote those resources to our program areas. That means more time in offices and conference rooms advocating for conservation goals and more volunteer work days organized..

What We Need

  • Document that articulates in a consistent voice key messages about the Organization’s identity, constituents, and mission and vision.
  • Creation of taglines and talking points to help the Organization communicate clearly and concisely
  • Recommendations on tailoring messaging for common communication channels (e.g., website copy, printed marketing collateral, pitching verbally)

Nice To Have

We want to change our name and our logo.

How This Will Help

This project is first priority for our organization. The organization has been around for more than thirty years, but people in our area do not have a clear picture of what the organization does. In the past our messaging has been cluttered, confusing our mission with our program areas. We have not painted a clear picture of our unique contribution to caring for the public lands of the Eastern Sierra. Our membership numbers have been stagnant. We want to augment our membership numbers and believe that creating a clear brand will help us to do that.

What We Have In Place

We currently have draft style guide, issues of newsletters, and short magazine which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a new website, a FB page and twitter and instagram accounts. and the ability to provide any other information you need.

Fun Fact

We have five full-time staff members and four full-time office dogs. We like to take staff hikes, and ski outings which are made more enjoyable by the presence of our dogs.
