+gmmb: An Internship to Remember
In September I moved to Washington D.C. from Boulder, CO to work as a design intern at GMMB, a political/advocacy advertising agency committed to causing the effect.
I spent three months working with with a team of creatives to push campaigns forward and position brands towards a stronger purpose. I designed work for numerous brands and foundations including: FEMA, Hewlett Foundation, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, CAP Tulsa, and more.
I helped design marketing materials for the non-profit, CAP Tulsa. They came to us wanting a different feel and approach. This is just one piece out of many that I helped design.
I grew up in Tulsa, OK and so working on this project brought me a lot of joy in knowing that I was helping my hometown community.
Voices for Georgia's Children
This is a one pager I designed for the non-profit organization, Voices for Georgia's Children.
As you can see, they wanted the one pager to be simple, but yet colorful and attractive.
Hewlett Foundation Baseball Cards
One of my first projects was to design these baseball cards for the Hewlett Foundation.
The purpose of these cards are to help lead the different positions throughout the company through various team building exercises and activities.
The cards were printed and laminated and fit perfectly in your hand.
Gates Foundation Organigram
I helped design this organigram for the Gates Foundation. They needed it done in PowerPoint so that they could easily edit the information.
Not only am I skilled in InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator, but also in PowerPoint.
Washington Health Department
Towards the end of my internship I worked on a campaign for the Washington Health Department. The purpose of this campaign was to urge people to sign up for a health plan by visiting their website and using their new WA Healthplan Finder tool.
I made the 30s storyboard, designed the facebook carousel and resized all the advertisements. I also worked with the animation team to make sure the animated banners were designed correctly.
The campaign was very successful. We saw a 24% rise in site visits and more than 50% increase in new enrollees.
I designed 12 sets of cards with different designs. Each set had 5 cards for a total of 60 cards.
The brand team at GMMB will use these cards with clients to establish their brand and help them push their brand to a stronger purpose.
Think Babies @ Shine
Strolling Thunder is a campaign brought on by the Zero to Three foundation. They specialize in early education.
They had a booth set up at the annual Shine conference in Washington, D.C.
I designed the this banner as well as the three background that the participants could get a picture with and then upload it to twitter with the #ThinkBabiesAndAct
These are just some of the photos that were uploaded to social media.
