case study  intro

Three unique United Way agencies needed integrated marketing support driven by United Way worldwide brand standards that also communicated their different perspectives to diverse audiences.


  • Brand Adaptation
  • Campaign development & design
  • communicate to diverse audiences
  • create strong calls to action

Although work for each agency required a slightly different project scope, all projects were unified by a commitment to stories, statistics, and a call to action.
