Free Design for Non-Profits

Posted by Adam Valvasori | 11-12-2013 08:02 | Category: Corporate Social Responsibility, Design



Webby award-winning 99designs is giving away free ‘design contests’ each month to a number of certified non-profit organisations around the world. For those unfamiliar with this model, it’s a process whereby designers submit competing designs in response to a customer’s design brief—and the winner receives a cash payment for their work. They’ve just announced that they’re bumping up the number of contests being given away in the lead up to Christmas (10 - 21 December). So now is your time to act - please take advantage of their kind offer! It’s not enough that you have a great cause (thousands do) make sure yours stands out. Make it easy for people to: find, understand and adopt your organisation’s values and vision as their own.

Whether you need a new or refreshed logo, website, t-shirt, flyer or whatever to do this, it’s essential that you start by writing a good brief. Just make sure you follow their advice.

Can fundraising marketers recreate the #icebucketchallenge?

Yesterday, it finally happened. Somebody challenged me to the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS. If your internet connection has been broken all summer, it’s this year’s big meme. You can read about it here. To be honest, I felt that the movement had passed its high-water mark when I saw…
