This project will save us $5,422 , allowing us to connect with more voters about how their legislators voted and invest more resources into our clean energy for all campaign and other projects.

What We Need

  • Consultation regarding the Organization's current branding and desired branding objectives
  • Visual branding guidelines / style guide that include specific colors, fonts, and other graphic design elements to use in print and digital communications materials
  • High-resolution logo delivered electronically (in formats for digital and print use)

How This Will Help

The Connecticut League of Conservation Voters need an exciting logo that captures our identity, allows our audience to quickly see what we're about, and helps us connect with voters. We're a bipartisan, statewide, non-profit organization dedicated to protecting Connecticut's environment by making it a priority for our elected leaders.

What We Have In Place

We have examples of our current logo as well as what our sister organizations and national chapter have used. We are excited about the current phase of our organization, and ready for a logo that reflects our growth and mission.

Fun Fact

CTLCV identifies and tracks legislation introduced in Connecticut's General Assembly that will impact our natural resources. State Legislators are notified about these bills through periodic Scorecard Alerts and asked to cast a pro-environment vote After each session CTLCV produces an Environmental Scorecard that grades legislators on their overall votes.
