Children's Shelter of Cebu Brand Identity Design
An uplifting brand identity for a children’s shelter
The Challenge Children’s Shelter of Cebu opened in 1979 as a home to orphaned, abandoned and surrendered children in the Philippines. The organization provides education and healthcare to its residents. With growing needs and expenses, attracting a wider donor base to advance its mission was crucial.
The Solution We created an authentic brand strategy that reflects the Children’s Shelter of Cebu mission. Based on the brand personality, a vividly colored logo using a childlike lowercase “i” was developed. With the truism of “a picture is worth a thousand words” in mind, we designed an image-centered visual identity system that captures the spirit of children in real moments at the shelter. Informal sans serif typography adds a contemporary, approachable feeling. Applied to all communications, from stationery system to website, the identity unites and strengthens the organization.
The Result Children’s Shelter of Cebu leaders revealed the brand identity at its annual banquet. Fundraising records were broken that night, with more than 14 percent of the annual budget raised. Families, donors and children from the shelter commended the work and expressed their gratitude for the opportunities it offers.
