Make Your Mark 02.13.201212.29.2016 Branding • Collaborations • Community • Events My good friend Sarah McGowan of MAC + COB Business Therapy and I have been trying to figure out a fresh, new way to put our special approaches to branding out in the big, wide world and we realized that we need to actually start small right in our backyard. Both Sarah and I love Los Angeles — our cozy neighborhood of Silver Lake, especially — and it dawned on us that a way to flex our creative muscles and share our services in a bigger way is to support our community’s philanthropic endeavors. We are both community-minded anyway and as small businesses we understand what it means to be the underdog. So we are launching MAKE YOUR MARK, a branding giveaway targeted to LA-based non-profit organizations that are five-years-old or under. We’ll receive applications until March 19 and then select five finalists who will then campaign to be the final winner on Facebook. The winner will receive a brand strategy, key messaging, logo and identity system. We are SO excited about the synergistic possibilities! All the deets are here if you are part of such an organization, know of someone who is or just want to spread the love. Be sure to join the Facebook MYM page.
