Education

This project is

In Progress

Matched with:

Keith L.

This project will save us $5,422 , allowing us to Reach more schools and help them be respectful, engaging, supportive places where all students and staff can thrive.

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)

Additional Details

Our current logo needs up-dating and possibly expanding to incorporate other aspects of our work

How This Will Help

We are in the process of expanding the Initiative from a regional effort to one that is national and even global in scope. We are also spinning off the Initiative from where it has been incubated for the last ten years. During this transition time we do not want to loose the visual recognition of the overall logo however it does need to be refreshed and up-dated.

What We Have In Place

We currently have all our existing marketing material and logo which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have experience in working with design professionals and the ability to provide any other information you need.
