Over the years we’ve worked with some amazing WA based arts organizations. Here are a few logos we’ve done for the likes of the Seattle Symphony, Auburn Arts Commission, Seattle International Film Festival, the Seattle Opera, Seattle Repertory Theatre, Puget Soundscape, Seattle International Music Fest, Gorge Amphitheatre, Seattle radio stations, Washington Commission for the Humanities…Think Global, Design Local.
Looking through a box of Vivitiv partner Jacqueline McCarthy’s old 45 rpm singles over the weekend, we found something very cool (besides lot’s of Monkees, Bobby Sherman, and Clarence Carter records). Buried deep amongst these vinyl treasures were these pins from the New York State Energy Office, imploring young Jacki to “Conserve Energy!”. Jacki figures she got these at the Great New York State Fair sometime in the late 1970s, proving that she has a long and deep commitment to conservation issues, and that she is a hoarder.
Vivitiv, was proud to partner with I-LABS, the Institute for Learning and Brain Sciences at the University of Washington and the Allen Institute for Brain Science, to develop a brand identity for the inaugural Seattle Brain Salon. The Salon was a gathering of some of the world’s leading innovators and acclaimed researchers in the field of brain science. Pictured above is a presentation moderated by journalist and author, John Hockenberry. Vivitiv was tasked with creating a new brand mark, signage, communications and marketing materials for this prestigious event. Go here for videos, TED talks, and interviews with some of the illustrious panelists.
We recently created a new brand mark for WRED, Washington Recycles Every Day, a program of WSRA, the Washington State Recycling Association. WSRA hosts three to four WRED events per year bringing professionals from all over Washington State together for discussion of recycling issues and behind the scenes tours of working facilities and technology demonstrations. Some previous WRED events included tours and informational talks at forward thinking companies such as Alchemy Goods, The Boeing Classic, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, NewWood Manufacturing, and Nucor Steel
As an extension of our work with WSRA, the new WRED logo closes the loop with some of the same bold, fresh and forward thinking elements.
This week Bloomberg BusinessWeek profiled Harvard Business School professor, innovation expert, and author of The Innovator’s Dilemma, Clayton Christensen. We were fortunate enough to work with the Technology Alliance for Mr. Christensen’s 2010 keynote appearance in Seattle for the TA Annual Luncheon. Here is an example of alternate event branding we did featuring Clayton and his theory of Disruptive Innovation.
May 1st and 2nd are big fundraising days for The Volunteer Park Conservatory. “May Day! May Day! on Fifteenth” makes it easy to donate while doing what you normally do—shopping, dining out, banking. These select merchants will donate a portion of their sales that day to the Restoration Fund at the Conservatory. See the list of generous shops here. Or look for the poster in shop windows, designed by Vivitiv.
Then, on May 2, the Seattle Foundation is holding their GiveBIG online charitable giving event. From their website:
Each donation made through The Seattle Foundation’s website to the any of the 1,300 profiled nonprofits between midnight and midnight (Pacific Time) on May 2, 2012 will receive a pro-rated portion of the matching funds (or “stretch”) pool. The amount of the “stretch” depends on the size of the stretch pool and how much is raised in total donations on GiveBIG day. For example, if a nonprofit organization receives 3 percent of the total donations during GiveBIG, then it will receive 3 percent of the stretch pool.
The Conservatory is participating this year, as are many other very worthy organizations. Even if flowers aren’t your thing, there is a nonprofit for everyone.
