The theme for the 2018 Dine. Drink. Dress. event at the Franklin Park Conservatory was Party + Empower. We paired strong, bold typography with a warm, “bubbly” background image that evokes the spirit of this annual summer event. This look was applied to multiple print and digital promotions for the event, which raises money to support Dress for Success’ mission to help women achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools. Throughout these materials, personal quotes from Dress for Success clients help to provide a personal connection to the cause.

In 2018, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium hosted a surprise party to celebrate Jack and Suzi Hanna’s 40 years with the Zoo. As the Zoo’s director, Jack Hanna helped make the Zoo what it is today, including its many educational programs and strong conservation efforts. In the design of these pieces, we pair Jack Hanna’s signature safari look with the sophistication of a high-end event. Die-cut leaves and a textured printing technique make this invitation package truly memorable. Ticket proceeds from this event launched the Jack and Suzi Hanna Fund for Wildlife Conservation, Transformative Education and Innovative Habitats.

Ibel Agency worked with the Pickaway County Community Foundation to redesign their website with a fresh, modern look and feel. PCCF’s goal was to establish their role in the community and highlight their diverse funds, grant opportunities and leadership training. The bright colors and modular layout of this site make it approachable and easy to access for its users.

Since 2009, Ibel Agency has worked with Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing each year to develop a new theme for the organization’s annual partnership luncheon. With the title of “This is home,” the 2018 theme aims to leave attendees with an understanding of the meaningful work that OCCH does in collaboration with its partners. The logo for this theme is carried through all elements created for the event, including digital invitations, an event program, a presentation template, nametags and a video that was featured at the luncheon. We worked with the team at Loose Films to interview residents and OCCH partners for this video. The final piece tells the story of how the work OCCH does gives people a place that truly feels like home.

Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing took on a new format for the 2017 Annual Report. We designed and developed a microsite that houses all of the stories, photos, graphs and charts that have always been a part of this publication. The site features large images opposite copy – imitating the feeling of a printed spread. A slider navigation that takes the user through pages within a section also helps to retain the experience of storytelling and pacing. Because of the digital format, however, users can now interact with some of the map graphs and watch a video that features the work that OCCH does. We created this video in partnership with Loose Films to tell OCCH’s story for those users who might not be familiar with or have a deep understanding of the organization’s work.
The Global Report is released biennially by the Columbus Council on World Affairs to provide the community with a snapshot of the city’s global connections. We used infographics throughout this document to highlight the global fluency of the Greater Columbus region in a way that is easy to understand. Divided into three sections of People, Education, and Economy, the report includes statistics about global trade, world languages in schools and Columbus’ increasingly diverse demographics. The most recent trifold brochure also includes a large map, which highlights the international engagements of Greater Columbus-based companies and institutions.

The International Awards Ceremony is the Council’s biggest event of the year and 2018 had a record attendance. We updated the look of the event envelope, one-pagers, membership envelope, mission card, sponsor poster and presentation slides and reformatted the program to make 2018 stand out from previous years. The rejuvenated design features gradations and graphic line elements from the Global Fluency Institute website and 2018-2019 The Global Report—both of which were announced at the event.

In conjunction with the launch of their new website, JBAD came to Ibel in 2017 to create a refreshed look for their brand. We kept the basic structure of the square logo while updating the type to a more modern, architectural font. A new color palette, made up of mostly grays, creates a neutral backdrop that emphasizes JBAD’s vibrant building imagery. The orange that was previously incorporated in the brand continues to provide a pop of color to highlight specific information.

This website was created with the team at the Columbus Council on World Affairs to help promote the organization’s Global Fluency Training and Global Scholars Diploma. Through these programs, CCWA educates professionals and high school students, respectively, on global fluency. The Global Fluency Institute brings these offerings to a national audience.
With a modular design, colorful graphics and bright imagery of people, the site successfully explains the ‘why,’ ‘what’ and ‘how’ of each program. It also features a calendar of upcoming events and an archive of The Global Report. The Global Fluency Quiz provides the user with an opportunity to test their own knowledge of the world—emphasizing the need for these trainings.
