Featured Client: Community Trust Foundation

Published: February 27, 2024

We love working with nonprofits and helping them in their quest to do good work. The mission of The Community Trust Foundation, Inc. is to strengthen the region by working in partnership with donors and community groups. They accomplish that mission by building philanthropic resources, connecting donors to organizations and programs they care about, making effective grants that impact community needs and managing investments for smaller non-profits.

Leah Shaffer, Executive Director of Community Trust Foundation chose CurlyRed to create an updated visual brand for their organization. We met with them to discuss the pain points and frustrations they had been facing, and helped them craft a fresh visual icon (with three leaves to represent the three counties they serve). We then paired that icon with elegant and timeless typefaces, and lastly worked with their board to find a nature-inspired and versatile color palette.

Here's what the CTF team had to say:

Our refreshed logo is a subtle nod to CTF’s past, brushed with a modern and friendly feel. We are thrilled that our re-energized look highlights our three counties while symbolizing our strong and trustworthy reputation. Thanks to CurlyRed for their expertise and assistance in this endeavor.
