The Robert Jensen Dau Foundation is a non-profit foundation with a purpose to fulfill charitable goals as set forth by its founder Robert Dau and his daughter. The organization primarily supports education, the written word, arts, and the environment. The foundation pays particular attention to Northern Michigan where the founder was born.

Supporting growth

It was important to create a logo that embodied not only the work that the foundation does, but that also reflects the values and passions Robert Dau is remembered for. The logo depicts a tree of life, a fundamental symbol of growth, inspired by the support the foundation provides to others, allowing them to thrive and flourish. The logo also incorporates elements of a maple leaf to represent Northern Michigan and the prosperity Robert Dau found in maple products as a woodcarver.

In addition to the logo, we designed a new website for the foundation.
