Branding & Logo Design

Identity and consistency are critical. We make sure your brand speaks to your audience.

Our team uses visual branding elements that engage, creative copy that excites, and an overall cohesion between the two that retains and informs your growing audience. Through modern logo design, carefully-crafted key messaging, and cohesive overall brand guidelines, we create brands that inspire, inform, and engage.

“I can’t thank you enough for capturing my vision to honor my daughter and all the amazing people that have inspired us to continue (as crazy and hard as it is). I really feel confident now to put my foot forward to go after [the fundraising] to help many more.”

Allyson Whitney Foundation

“side•sea helped take our website to a new level and created a page we can be proud of that reflects our mission well. I especially loved the initial process of working with side•sea to determine our style preferences. They provided us with two initial design concepts to choose from, which was a great way to visually see different ways the site could look and then choose elements from both for the final product.”

Ryan Holloway

Director of Market Development and Communications

International Cooperating Ministries

“The side•sea team was such a pleasure to work with. We greatly appreciated their creativity, initiative and flexibility as we developed a beautiful website that captures who we are and our mission to serve Christians working in the global health field. When we began working with side•sea we had encountered debilitating problems with our existing website. side•sea had the technical capabilities to fix the old site and keep it running while the new site was being developed – which was extremely reassuring at a very difficult time. I am so pleased with our new site and would definitely recommend working with side•sea!”

Kathy Erb

Communications Manager

Christian Connections for International Health

“I want to formally thank you for the extensive amount of time and energy your team put into building a new website for Hope Through Health. At the onset, I had no idea how much time and expertise this project would require and we feel so lucky that you were willing to do such high quality work for our organization. Everyone who has seen the site thus far is very impressed. Please thank the whole development team as well, on our behalf. We look forward to continuing to work together. Thank you again for all your hard work!”

“This is the first time ever that all of our offices around the world can benefit from a fully integrated and customised online donation page, fully mobile compatible. It was certainly a challenge but your team was constantly on it, investing a lot of time energy and skills into it. So thank you! And thank you for the flexibility which didn’t go unnoticed. side•sea did an AWESOME job at project managing AND developing at the same time. Wow.”

Designing change  for nonprofits.

We’re here to create thriving brands for the social sector.

In order to get your brand exactly right, we start with a discovery process that allows our designers to understand your organization’s preferred aesthetic. We then use that knowledge to develop the types of shapes, iconography, typography, colors, and other elements that we want to use to create your logo, website, and/or other branded marketing materials. The logo becomes the cornerstone of your brand, so we want it to be perfect.

To develop poignant messaging, we have a dedicated copywriter who gets to know your organization, its mission, and your audience. By crafting custom copy, we create messaging that succinctly and powerfully explains your work, inspires your audience, and establishes strong brand recognition through informative and memorable taglines.

Our branding team develops brand guidelines for your organization -- a guide that includes your chosen logo, colors, typography, and messaging, so that you can keep all you can use this established branding on future marketing assets. Our guide includes how to use these branding elements, the psychology and personality of the colors in your color palette, and the difference between display fonts, heading and body font, script font, and more.
