As a nonprofit focused on creating a strong, self-sustaining St. Louis, Grace Hill wanted a brand refresh that would engage and inspire neighbors, families and potential donors alike. We started by developing the line “Everyday Opportunity,” which captures the mission and possibilities this important organization provides. The accompanying logo works as a natural extension of this brand position, inspired by hope and promise of a better tomorrow.
web & digital strategy
Our team has collaborated with Grace Hill on a broad range of multi-faceted, ongoing communications to support its programs and fundraising efforts. This work has included social/digital campaigns, direct mail and publications. One highlight is their Annual Report to the Community, which celebrates the year’s successes with messages and images of hope. The bright colors, candid photography and bold typography are all a seamless extension of their brand — inspired by the positive impact Grace Hill has on so many families.
A Growing Understanding
In order to have anyone buy into an idea, especially one that calls for monetary giving, they have to understand who we are, what we do, and why their help or donation is impactful. We used a local approach, as Grace Hill serves those throughout the St. Louis city, but we also presented a big picture idea with Grace Hill’s partnership with Head Start, a national organization. Specified targeted allowed us to target a variety of people (ages, locations, affinities, etc.) while keeping our demographic relevant and wide spread based on likelihood to donate.
“You have always taken great care to understand the nuances of our mission and values, and give our brand that same level of thoughtful attention.”
