Slam Nonprofit Branding Services Overview

At Slam, we have five main nonprofit branding services. These include:

  • Brand strategy and identity
  • Art direction
  • Illustration, motion and graphic design
  • Email design

At Slam, we understand that a strong nonprofit brand strategy can speak for itself and go beyond words. Here’s how we set ourselves apart:

With a tailored approach. Our project objectives are to make your nonprofit brand look 10x better than the next competitor or brand. How? Visual storytelling, powerful growth-driven website CMS, improving conversion, etc!

We understand that every nonprofit organization is unique, so we go through a brand discovery process to understand your goals, needs, and objectives. We conduct in-depth research and with your input, we put together a mood board with examples, non-examples, and a final direction of where your brand should go.

Plus, we have 10+ years of experience working with nonprofits. This means that we know what it takes to grow a large brand. 

Our approach is storytelling through design. Our work isn’t just pretty stuff. We work closely with your team to understand your nonprofit’s narrative and translate it into visual elements that make a connection with your audience. 

We’ve worked with nonprofits in education, policy, access, and health, and have helped them build beautiful and powerful brands. Some of these websites have won awards for UI, innovation, and user experience.

Want to see examples of our work? Look at Fresh Approach, a nonprofit organization based in California that is dedicated to bringing the benefits of locally-grown produce, nutrition education, and gardening skills to communities across the S.F. Bay Area. Their mission is to ensure that everyone in the region has access to healthy food and the knowledge necessary to make nutritious choices.

Our approach to Fresh Approach's brand identity is rooted in their shared values of diversity and inclusivity. Through the logo and colors, we aim to capture the vibrant tapestry of cultures, flavors, and landscapes that define California. Our diverse visual treatments speak to the essence of the community, encapsulating the diverse experiences and perspectives that contribute to its collective strength.

Drawing inspiration from the beauty of the land, the richness of agricultural heritage, and the faces that make up the community, our nonprofit brand approach brings to life the abundance of the harvest through vibrant illustrations that illustrate the wealth of fresh produce.

We’ve built, grown, and given new life to world class nonprofit brands. We think of design and branding as more than just your logo: it’s everything your customers see and read. From color, to the words you choose, to the way your site comes alive with animations, we think of the full experience of your brand and how your community will interact with it.

When it comes to illustrations and animations, we produce design that stands out from the feed to the big screen. 

We offer dynamic illustration services to complement and enhance the creative work of in-house teams or as a standalone solution. Our team of talented illustrators combines artistic expertise with a deep understanding of design principles and storytelling.

We understand the power of illustrations in capturing attention, conveying messages, and engaging audiences across various mediums. Whether you require assets for social media, advertisements, out-of-home displays, presentations, videos, or any other visual communication needs, we have you covered. You name it, and we'll bring your vision to life.
