In 2020, as part of the annual donation we make to 1% For the Planet, we donated a logo design to their network auction and were so delighted when Healthy Oceans, Healthy People won the bid. As a small non-profit, Healthy Oceans, Healthy People were looking to build a brand identity that successfully positioned them as the positive, action-oriented, ocean-focused organization that they are. Healthy Oceans, Healthy People came to the project knowing that they wanted a brand identity that showed the connection between people and the oceans and their proud representation of California, where they are located.
After working closely on brand strategy with Healthy Oceans, Healthy People, we came to understand how vital surfing and surf culture is to their mission of protecting the oceans through education and research. By exploring an untapped intersection between surf-inspired design and non-profit design, we developed a brand identity for Healthy Oceans, Healthy People that positions them as experts and a credible organization but also one that is lively and full of action. Most importantly, we connected people with the ocean and demonstrated how inseparable they are.
"Natalie and Brandyn were amazing to work with - professional and creative. We signed up for a logo and got so much more. They are great communicators and designed the perfect logo for our non-profit. They also designed an impressive, beautiful colour palette, story board and brand board for us. We received so much more creative expertise than expected. We will definitely work with them again on our next creative project. We also love that they are part of the 1% for the Planet community."
