Authenticity-Driven Creative Communications



Native Arts & Cultures Foundation

The Native Arts & Cultures Foundation is an amazing, one-of-a-kind organization: the first national nonprofit charitable fund in our country’s history dedicated exclusively to supporting Native arts and cultures.

We’re working with the NACF to develop a revitalized brand identity and communications initiatives that authentically express their mission and their sincere passion. We started with ads and collateral (below) and then designed a brand assessment process built on extensive personal interviews and workshopping with NACF stakeholders.

From there we're developing brand components such as naming, key messages, tag lines, and logo design — all grounded in our trademark organizational anthropology.

The Art is Life Campaign

Key to the NACF's mission is the indivisibility of life, art, and culture among Native peoples. We developed a straight-to-the-heart campaign showcasing NACF grantee artists and organizations, rolled out in print media such as American Indian Art magazine, Native Peoples Magazine, NCAI and SWAIA.
