Unifying an expanding organization
A growing human services agency needed a cohesive identity that would honor where they’ve been and embrace where they’re headed.
Growth led an organization into a wider range of services.
Junior Blind of America began in Los Angeles in 1953 as a recreational program for children with vision loss. Today, it’s a powerful organization with a statewide presence and deep expertise in programmatic areas that extend far beyond visual impairment including special needs, foster care, adoption, and mental health services. The “Junior Blind” identity was an important part of their history, but it no longer represented the organization they had become.
Building on history while making room to tell a larger story.
Junior Blind has long been known as the go-to place for programs for the visually impaired in California. To be effective, a new identity had to appeal to clients and donors with connections to issues around vision loss, as well as to new audiences who were more familiar with them for other areas of their work.
