To attract members and funding, the Impact Hub needed a consistent message and brand

The folks at Impact Hub Baltimore had a vision of a space that would be a central hub for Baltimore’s social change community. When I began working with the team, they were busy on many fronts from fundraising to planning and the way they talked about themselves was inconsistent. To build a physical space they needed support in the form of money, ambassadors, members and volunteers. Their messaging needed to make the case for why people should be involved.

We worked together to build a message and brand that engages supporters

Our engagement started with an extended branding workshop which allowed the team to get together in one room and come to consensus about their culture and what they want to communicate. We helped them refine their pitch in order to solicit funding. This often involved narrowing down what to say and figuring out the most compelling way to tell the story. We helped to ensure all marketing materials were cohesive and grounded in their identity. From their business cards to their website, their brand materials allowed them to raise all the money they needed to build the space.

“I can’t speak highly enough about how much clarity Kate brought to our team while we were forming. Six years later we still regularly use the brand and messaging guide she created for us. In fact, it's required reading for new team members.”
