Branding for nonprofit

The Joe Andruzzi Foundation is committed to providing help, hope, and a reason to smile, for New England cancer patients and their families by contributing financial support when it is needed most.

We are incredibly proud to have worked with the Joe Andruzzi Foundation (JAF) for many years and to be able to continue this partnership. It is a great honor for us to play a small role in helping JAF advance their mission to support cancer patients and their families through our graphic design and web design services. To coincide with their 10-year anniversary, we worked with JAF on their rebranding and logo design.

Web design for nonprofit

Since 1989, Christmas in the City brings comfort & joy to Boston-area families experiencing homelessness and poverty. We were thrilled to work with this wonderful nonprofit on their website redesign.

Christmas in the City needed a website redesign that reflected how exciting their events are for families in need. It was also important that the website design for this Boston nonprofit communicated that the events aren’t only focused on Christmas. They are a supportive, inclusive group that welcomes diversity.

Infographics for nonprofit

Groundwater Guardians is a collaboration of professionals working to engage residents, visitors, and fans of Cape Cod in making clean water available for everyone. They hired us to design an infographics series to educate the community on topics such as aquifers, the importance of nitrogen and phosphorous, and emerging contaminants in drinking water. The organization struggled to make these technical topics clear for the public, so it was our job to learn, simplify, and visualize the information in infographics.

Print design for nonprofit

BlueHub Capital projects touch the lives of underserved communities across the country. They reinvigorate their communities by financing affordable housing, child and youth programs, schools and health care facilities; renovating commercial real estate in distressed neighborhoods; introducing solar power to help contain energy costs of low-income families; and lending to homeowners facing the threat of foreclosure.

After completing the rename and branding project, BlueHub Capital asked us to design their annual report. Our approach was to include a combination of illustration and infographics to accompany the wonderful photographs.

Opus Design worked diligently with us on our rebranding. We’re a complex organization and our decision-making is by consensus, so the process of identifying a new name was longer than usual. It was worth it: we ended up with a name that stands out and a stunning visual identity that our employees, partners, investors and other stakeholders like very much. Throughout the process, Opus was responsive and flexible in turning around our requests. I highly recommend them.
