CLIENT

Blue Ridge Foun­da­tion helps startups—new busi­nesses with a mis­sion to make a difference—become suc­cess­ful orga­ni­za­tions. They pro­vide money, exper­tise, and office space, help­ing to tran­si­tion great ideas into mean­ing­ful impact. For 20 years they’ve helped launch socially con­scious initiatives.


BRIEF

Recently, their focus has shifted towards technology-centered ideas, and they reached out to us to help them com­mu­ni­cate with their new audience.


APPROACH

The client knew that in order to be cred­i­ble in the tech-startup and social entre­pre­neur­ship sphere their brand would need to become more outward-facing and inno­v­a­tive. We needed to nego­ti­ate between appeal­ing to a new, youth­ful, technology-centered audi­ence, while still remain­ing authen­tic to the foundation’s his­tory. The three-dimensional cube visu­al­izes Blue Ridge as an incu­ba­tor space. The logo com­mu­ni­cates build­ing blocks, as the client helps new orga­ni­za­tions build a solid foundation.

PRODUCTION LESSONS

One impor­tant pro­duc­tion les­son learned from this job was to leave areas that required glue­ing with­out any ink. Glue sticks best when on vir­gin paper.
