Myself, two other designers, and a former design professor teamed up with the Rich Center for Autism in Youngstown, Ohio to create a new identity for the center. We created a new logo with a full identity system that bridged the gap between the center's academic research areas with the childlike playfulness of the center's original logo of two children chasing a butterfly. To accompany the identity we included multiple design concepts for marketing and promotional items using that new identity to inspire the board members.
I continue to include this work in my portfolio because as my first professional interaction with a community organization, I find it endlessly inspiring. The service they provide to the Youngstown community is invaluable. By working with them, I learned humility enough to understand that while my designs won't ever solve everything, my skills can be used to better communicate, create, and foster advocacy for truly good causes.
