The Challenge

Advancing an organization

As 2019 marked their 30th year, it was time to reflect upon their brand and create new elements that truly represented the organization and would carry them into their next thirty years. Just as LPP helps students to reach their full potential, it was Idea Kraft’s turn to help LPP reach theirs.

The Solution

Stepping into the future

We introduced a modified logo refresh that stays true to the original symbology. We kept the torch icon, but reworked the logo to feel more modern, bold, and impactful. The previous logo had typography that got lost in the design, and we wanted to put more focus on the name. We also put more focus on the torch by simplifying it, and letting it be in the forefront of the circle, instead of being blocked. The logo was also created with reproduction in mind – it is now easily changed to a single color version to be used by all the various organizations where 1 color merchandise printing is common.

To ensure success in use, we also created a brand guidelines document that will help the multiple users of the logo have a clear pathway to success. Many of the users are unfamiliar with correct logo usage and the different production standards available to them. The guidelines will help inform them how to launch a successful new brand and look their best.

By revising their website, we created a unified location that they are now proud to show off. Content is current and expansive, covering information from every region. A more engaging interactive map improves central access to programs. Data is more presentable, and prioritized calls to action make it easier for visitors to utilize Liberty Partnerships’ resources. The new design guides users through the website and promotes Liberty Partnerships as a whole.

In addition to their main website, we created a subpage that can be used as a landing page to promote and bring awareness to their 30 for 30 campaign. This subpage honors the 30th anniversary of the organization with a focus on donations and highlighting alumni. A special logo was also created for this anniversary to use on promotional materials throughout the year.
