A few highlights and a hearty thank you to the people and organizations that kept pushing us forward. We wish everyone a purposeful and prosperous new year.
Vivitiv is proud to have created this mark for new initiativeÂ to assistÂ homeless veterans and theirÂ families. The Home for a Hero project is a collaboration between the King County Housing Association, US Departments of Veterans Affairs, andÂ Housing and Urban Development and WA State landlords to set aside housing stock, administer Housing Choice vouchers, provide eligible vets with move-in expenses, case management and support services.
Vivitiv was recently tasked with the development and implementation of a branding program for the Technology Institute, a biennial, invitation-only retreat that brings together leaders from Washington’s technology businesses, research institutions, education and government to address key public policy issues affecting theÂ innovation community and economic competitiveness. We workedÂ in concert with the fine people of the Technology Alliance to craft a program of print and digital materials used in advance of and during the retreat. Vivitiv also had a hand in formulating the 2015 tagline which drove the event discussion, An Open Forum on the Challenges Ahead. Photography by Walter Siegmond.
There are so many interesting places in this world, itâ€™s hard to narrow down where to go when youâ€™re not a trust-fund baby. The â€œdesignjunketâ€ system was developed to determine travel plans. Each junket starts out with at least one specific design-related element to investigate. It could be a painting, a building, an invention or inventor. You know, because â€œdesign is everywhere.â€ After IÂ see what IÂ sought, I check out the rest of the area.Â AnyÂ available pricingÂ will be listed (current at the date of the post) and anyÂ money-saving insightsÂ will be shared because Iâ€™m a skinflint but canâ€™tÂ do hostels.
Come along for the ride, I hope it inspiresÂ you to embark on your own design junket and let me know your thoughts. Happy junketing!
Vivitiv is in the creative phase ofÂ a new campaign for Terra Linda Consulting and the City of Bellevue to promote their EverGreen Gift Markets. These sustainable gift markets are held throughout the year in Bellevue and Vancouver, WA. There is aÂ summer outdoor marketÂ as well as a winter holiday versionÂ where you’llÂ findÂ green, upcycled and locallyÂ made arts and crafts. The campaign consists of posters, direct mail, print and digital advertising,Â outdoor banners and directional signage. Buy upcycled!Â Buy local! Buy EverGreen!
Vivitiv worked with the advocacy organizations Cool Mom, Zero Waste Washington on the brand designÂ of theÂ Old Car Seat, New LifeÂ program. Vivitiv developed the visual language for this new program which included a logo design, the RecycleYourCarSeat.org website, tagline creation,Â informational brochures, andÂ cards, wayfindingÂ signage and event displays.Â Funded by a Public Participation Grant from the Washington State Department of Ecology, CoolMom and Zero Waste Washington are working together to tackle sustainability issuesÂ of childrenâ€™s products, beginning with childrenâ€™s car and booster seats by expanding reuse and recycling options. The campaign provides information for families toÂ review, reuse and recycle car seats and an ever-growing network of partnership programs nationwide.
