We've designed many annual reports, infographics, fundraising materials, and other brand support for several nonprofits and companies over the course of many years. We've also helped to coordinate (and shoot) photography and to manage the printing processes to ensure projects are finished on time and on budget.

Founded in 1888, Sheltering Arms is one of Georgia’s largest nonprofit organizations and one of its most respected. As a national leader in early education, Sheltering Arms serves nearly 2500 children daily, ages six weeks to five years old, and their families in 15 centers across metro Atlanta. It’s another cause we really believe in, and we are excited to be creating materials to support their mission.
Sheltering Arms approached us with a brand concept that they needed to bring to life — we took the initial concept and made it real with multiple executions, including the brand standards manual and many print materials and templates. Prior to that project, we shot photography for and designed their Annual Reports, fundraising materials and gala event support.
We were approached by Impact Zone, an SEO and data management company, to design a logo and a simple brand standards framework. The logo design is based on the fibonacci spiral as well as the surfing concept the company was named for: the impact zone is where the waves have the most energy and where systematic water motions give way to heavy duty turbulence in the surf. By the same point, Impact Zone was founded to help companies manage the data deluge before the critical turning point.
Pro Bono Partnership of Atlanta
We've recently helped the ProBono Partnership of Atlanta with an infographic and type treatment to embed in their (already branded) emails for a fundraising campaign — which was successful in a fairly short amount of time. We also designed an event invitation for an upcoming gala.
PeopleSourcer, a national, woman-owned professional staffing company, approached us for a total web redo. It had been years since they had revisited their online presence, and they wanted something clean, professional, and that would keep them looking fresh and relevant for a few more. The finished product is responsive, cleanly designed, and clearly written (by our team), and gives the company the keys to the update kingdom with an intuitive content management system. We also ported this new messaging, content, and look to an updated brochure and capabilities presentation to round out a fresh collection of materials.
C5 Georgia Youth Foundation is a nonprofit organization that helps high-potential teens (often from risk-filled environments) learn leadership skills, prepare for college and return to their communities to lead. It’s a cause we really believe in, and over our five-year relationship with this nonprofit, we’ve been commissioned to redefine their brand, redesign their website, and create a new series of annual reports after a multi-year hiatus from them. The look needed to reference their current well-known brand and refresh the materials to both appeal to mature donors and reflect the organization’s youthful energy.
The result is a cohesive design voice and a living, flexible brand that we continue to apply to communications from donation requests to overview brochures, case statements, special events, newsletters, and more
