METAvivor: Branding

METAvivor is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and support for those suffering from metastatic (Stage 4) breast cancer. In memory of those who have died battling this cancer, the organization features photos of the individuals on their home page through a dynamic “living wall” which allows visitors to journey back in time and see pictures of their lost loved ones. In addition to the main website, we developed a microsite built around thought-provoking statement that “Women Don’t Die from Breast Cancer” – in reality, both women and men die when only once breast cancer metastasizes.

Located in the hub of governmental contract work, it is sponsored by the GSA and gives product specifiers/purchasers a chance to see the latest in the industry. In previous years, the conference theme typically revolved around a simple graphic look, but this year we had the opportunity to infuse it with some hard-hitting messaging. The playful theme invites the audience to step away from the computer, put down their phones, and “Browse Without Your Browser.”

SpryWare: Website

SpryWareSpryWare is a software development company that provides real-time market data feeds to financial organizations. In their business it is important to deliver information in nanoseconds, so we used speed as the primary messaging focus. The complexities of their product offerings also demanded an educational approach to the copy and navigation design. The simplified layout showcases the basic concepts at a glance. Written copy is kept to small chunks that don’t overwhelm the reader with complex information. And an illustrated slideshow on the homepage presents an informative overview.

Set against the Chicago skyline, the slogan adorned a wide range of marketing materials leading up to the event including the website, print/web ads, and direct mail. The website served as a central repository of information for each of the conference’s targeted audience groups.

Lutheran Malaria Initiative: Interactive Projects

Lutheran Malaria Initiative

The Lutheran Malaria Initiative helps people suffering from malaria in under-served countries through a combination of education, treatment, and prevention. Before their national roll out, we completely redesigned LMI’s website to reach out to donors and people who want to get involved in the movement. The goal of the new site is to humanize the issue with the theme “Give a First Chance,” and to create an emotional appeal that encourages action. The highly interactive home page, motion video, and interactive quiz showcase personal stories and statistical facts about the disease and the value of intervention. Each of these elements were tightly integrated with social media as a way to further spread the word about this important cause.
