Building a brand for a thriving organization

Family and community

In order to achieve their mission—working for the full equality of all LGBTQ Jews in Jewish life—Keshet needed to send strong, consistent messages.

Renewed focus called for refined communications.

Keshet identified three major programmatic priorities in their five-year strategic plan—expanding partnerships with Jewish institutions, reaching more LGBTQ Jewish teens, and increasing advocacy efforts—and partnered with Big Duck to build a bold and modern brand to help achieve their goals and take them into the future.

Telling the whole story

Keshet’s communications historically prioritized their teen programs. To motivate all of their audiences (Jewish leaders, LGBTQ Jewish teens, LGBTQ Jews, and liberal Jewish allies) to take action, it was time to weave the different threads of their work together.

We developed a simple brand strategy, identity, and visual system that exudes strength and communicates Keshet’s mission in a bold, unexpected way. We also crafted a messaging platform for their staff to use to tell a comprehensive and compelling story about who Keshet is, what they do, and why their work matters for LGBTQ Jews and Jewish life as a whole.

Streamlining set them apart

Keshet developed a new website with Advomatic (now Four Kitchens). Their new identity and website radiates Keshet’s expertise and LGBTQ pride.

As a result

Keshet is building a more robust base of supporters and Jewish community leaders, expanding their reach with LGBTQ Jewish teens, and bolstering strategic partnerships by using their reenergized brand to advance LGBTQ equality as a core Jewish value. Keshet is better articulating their vision for a more just future and more effectively mobilizing their key audiences in reaching that goal.

Big Duck helped us express our vision. They fused our Jewish roots and LGBTQ pride in a sophisticated brand that gives us a strong platform to speak more consistently—and powerfully—as an organization.
