Project Details

What We Need
  • Visual branding guidelines/style guide in .pdf and/or print format that includes specific colors, primary and secondary typefaces, minimum size and buffer space for logo, examples of incorrect logo usage, and any other graphic design elements, to guide use in print and digital communications materials
Additional Details

The Fair Housing Center is looking to establish an in-depth branding guide. Our organization is currently looking to overhaul our website and increase our marketing capacity. We want to create a streamlined, professional, and accessible look. Critically, we are looking for volunteers who are familiar with, or able to learn and implement graphic design industry standards of accessibility, compliance with the ADA, and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) into visual brand guide.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a logo and pantone colors, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have clear target audiences, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,212 , allowing us to allocate more time and resources to directly working with, supporting, and uplifting our clients.

At the Fair Housing Center of Southeast and Mid Michigan, we are responsible for enforcing the Fair Housing Act. We achieve this through education, advocacy, investigation, and collaboration with legal service providers. As advocates for disabled individuals and others with access needs, it is important our visual materials are accessible to our clients. We also feel it important to set a leading example for other agencies, and appeal to donors and grand providers.

Project Plan

Prep: Distribution of Prep Materials
  • Volunteer Manager provides Professional with current logo, current branding guidelines (if available), and any existing marketing/communications materials (letterhead, business cards, social media usage, etc.)
  • Volunteer Manager provides Professional with examples of 1-2 branding guidelines from existing companies they feel have great branding guidelines
Milestone 1: Brainstorm
  • Professional and Volunteer Manager connect to discuss the branding goals, target audience, and preferred design elements
