Vivitiv is proud to have created this mark for new initiative to assist homeless veterans and their families. The Home for a Hero project is a collaboration between the King County Housing Association, US Departments of Veterans Affairs, and 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 the innovation community and economic competitiveness. We worked 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, it’s hard to narrow down where to go when you’re not a trust-fund baby. The “designjunket” 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 “design is everywhere.” After I see what I sought, I check out the rest of the area. Any available pricing will be listed (current at the date of the post) and any money-saving insights will be shared because I’m a skinflint but can’t do hostels.
Come along for the ride, I hope it inspires you to embark on your own design junket and let me know your thoughts. Happy junketing!
Vivitiv is in the creative phase of 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 a summer outdoor market as well as a winter holiday version where you’ll find green, upcycled and locally made arts and crafts. The campaign consists of posters, direct mail, print and digital advertising, outdoor banners and directional signage. Buy upcycled! Buy local! Buy EverGreen!
Vivitiv worked with the advocacy organizations Cool Mom, Zero Waste Washington on the brand design of the Old Car Seat, New Life program. Vivitiv developed the visual language for this new program which included a logo design, the RecycleYourCarSeat.org website, tagline creation, informational brochures, and cards, wayfinding signage and event displays. Funded by a Public Participation Grant from the Washington State Department of Ecology, CoolMom and Zero Waste Washington are working together to tackle sustainability issues of children’s products, beginning with children’s car and booster seats by expanding reuse and recycling options. The campaign provides information for families to review, reuse and recycle car seats and an ever-growing network of partnership programs nationwide.
Vivitiv partner Mark Kaufman helped T-Mobile get into the holiday spirit with a Santa’s sleigh full of drawings for their 2014 holiday campaign. Mark’s drawings can be found in print all over T-Mobile in-store displays, promotional and event materials, apparel, on television spots (look close or you’ll miss it!), and digitally on T-Mobile’s site, in-store video displays and social media channels like Twitter, YouTube and Facebook. Cheers to ad agencies Wong Doody and Razorfish for the fun collaboration!
