After several months of hard work and collaboration, we're excited to announce the launch of our new brand identity, complete with a whole new website!
THE HOW: 180 Degrees partnered with the talented creative agency StoneArch to take on this important project. Together, we dug into those questions – what do we do, why do we do it, and how? We reworked our messaging from the ground up and got feedback from staff, partner organizations, clients, supporters, and the community, which was then translated into a visual identity.
- How we talk about ourselves. We've laid out six pillars that root our organization in what we do and tell the story of how we do our work.
- Our mission statement has had a refresh to accurately reflect the heart of 180 Degrees and what we’re working to achieve in the community.
- Our logo, branding color palette, and website will be completely transformed.
What will stay the same?
- You can count on our services, priorities, and values continuing to be centered around supporting youth and adults who are in crisis.
- Our service approach will continue to be rooted in equity, trauma-informed care, and strength-based programming.
- We’ll continue focusing on meeting clients where they’re at, building community engagement, and creating a safe space for everyone.
Over the past year, 180 Degrees focused on listening to what the community needs most. In response, we're adding more transitional housing to support those coming out of emergency housing. We’re working to make emergency housing more easily accessible for rural youth who experience high levels of isolation. We’re prioritizing fully embodying a trauma-informed organization with extensive trainings, organization-wide protocols, and staff support to ensure our actions speak louder than words.
“Understanding the what, how, and why of the organization unites staff and the community, and strengthens fundraising for short and long-term stability. By having a clear message and an easy to navigate website, clients and community partners will have an easier time accessing support and getting connected to resources” Marketing Manager Alex Moeller said.
Thank you to the community for your support in this next adventure, and being a partner in creating safe spaces for people in crisis.
