As a strategic design firm committed to education, studio-e believes that it’s important to give back to the community, provide programs that assist in protecting the environment and support the work of non-profits.
We manage to touch upon all three areas in our work with Gaining Ground, an organic farm that donates all of its produce to area food pantries and meal programs. Located in Concord, MA, not far from the studio, Gaining Ground raises and distributes roughly 20,000 pounds of produce each growing season.
Since 1997, studio-e has contributed our time and our designs to Gaining Ground. We began by refining its logo and brand identity, and have since worked on the farm’s fundraising and special events pieces, as well as its biannual newsletter. We also designed Gaining Ground: A Model of Hunger Relief and Meaningful Volunteerism, and are currently designing the Gaining Ground cookbook.
While our support of Gaining Ground is indicative of the kind of unique work that we do, it also speaks to the strength of our relationships within the community—and the kinds of relationships we hope to cultivate with future clients.
