Inspiration and Dreams from Balle 2014

We were honored to be chosen to design the identity and collateral for BALLE’s 2014 conference.

You couldn’t ask for a more inspiring theme than this year’s: Prosperity For All.

It was an intense and creative four month process where we first established the look and feel for the conference and then carried it through to every sign, hand out, and visual element of the conference. We even created fun props to bring the conference identity all the way into the photo booth! (Check out our work in our portfolio →)

The conference itself was a huge success. BALLE staff brought together change-makers from all over the country and the world to learn from and inspire each other.

BALLE’s Executive Director Michelle Long summarized the mood:

We were not meant to be in service to our economy;

The economy was meant to be in service to us…

…anyone who thinks or feels that they can’t do it alone, they are… sane.”

Dream it Forward

We unveiled our dream of creating Camp Artsy Geek, a supportive community that provides entrepreneurs the resources to market their businesses themselves.

We asked the friends we met to share their secret business dreams. Each was as encouraging as the next, and we could truly see the potential of so many change-makers working toward the same universal goals.
