Macomb Community Action is looking for a visual brand guideline that can incorporate our various departments in a cohesive, coherent way. We are looking for colors, typography, departmental markers or flags of some kind (to differentiate programs from one another, but still signify their presence as part of a larger collective), and some narrative ideas. Our logo and website cannot change, but all other details are on the table!
Macomb Community Action is a part of the Macomb County government in Southeast Michigan. We serve a wide demographic range with the mission of persistent action to diminish poverty and promote independence. With better branding, we could make a larger, clearer impact online and in-person to reach more folks facing a housing crisis, seniors facing isolation and nutritional deficiencies, children requiring early education, those facing food insecurity, and more.
Macomb Community Action's mission is to apply persistent action to diminish poverty and promote independence. Our vision is that all customers achieve their fullest potential and maintain personal stability and security.
Part of the County of Macomb (Michigan), Macomb Community Action (MCA) supports residents through various programs:
- The Children and Family Services Division assists children and their families enroll in Head Start, and increases food security through our Macomb Food Program.
- The Office of Senior Services provides hot meals to homebound seniors through Meals on Wheels, assists with household chores and repairs via the Handy Helpers program, is an advocate for senior resources, and more.
- The Community Services Division supports individuals and families facing crisis through our Action Centers, provides transportation to seniors and disabled adults to and from medical appointments, installs devices to prevent injury in the home, and rehabilitates qualifying homes in the area to support health and safety.
We stay very busy helping folks in Macomb County regain financial and housing stability, secure meals and education, and care for some of the most vulnerable in the community. We are looking forward to working with creative business professionals on Catchafire to expand our capacity to help those in need.
Wow! I cannot praise Taryn enough for all his excellent work on our visual brand guide! He was extremely quick to produce colors and fonts from the start so we could have an idea of how things could look moving forward. He delivered wonderful icons, layouts, and project mock-ups so we could see his vision in action. When we had to make tweaks or changes, Taryn made adjustments quickly and with absolute professionalism. His final visual brand guide is so utterly complete and well written that following his suggestions in future will be a delight. I am so thrilled by the final product and would gladly work with Taryn in future. Thank you Taryn!
