People Are Not Trash

In honor of Dr. King, I have a dream that someday we won’t treat people like trash anymore. Everyone will be treated with dignity and grace. And all of our design and marketing efforts will support that experience.

Images from around town last week:

SAN GABRIEL MTS REGIONAL CONSERVANCY

San Gabriel Mountains Regional Conservancy is dedicated to “connecting mountains, urban creeks and watershed of the upper San Gabriel River” in Southern California. In 2003 they needed a new logo as well as a site that communicated this important mission.

The Approach
We developed a “purple mountains majesty” logo which stands out nicely amongst more commonly colored green logos popular among “green” organizations and a website featuring beautiful photos from the region along with an easy-to-navigate, updatable interface.

The Result
It’s 2012 and sgmrc.org is still active and growing, providing timely information about SGMRC’s current events, community outreach, mission, and how to support this valuable non-profit organization. [view site]

GIRLS SCOUTS MT. WILSON VISTA COUNCIL

Created in 1999 for active Girl Scouts, parents, and prospective Scouts. The fun navigation trail had destination labels such as “Base Camp” and “Program Point.” Further navigation was easy with rollovers that describe the contents of inside links. Site was live from 1999-2009.

In 2000, the site was awarded a PRo Award, by PCLA (Public Communicators of Los Angeles).
