I am very happy to share a recent piece I did for a newly formed domestic violence and poverty awareness group in Mongolia, through a Peace Corps volunteer from the States. To help Гэрэлт Ирээдүйн Төлөө Хамтдаа (Let’s Work Together for a Better Future), I donated my design services and turned their logo idea into a clean and professional digital file.
I understand the importance of having a visual identity. It helps promotion and in this case, aids in awareness of something otherwise undiscussed. Black Coffee Projects, an art and design team I co-founded, is celebrating its first year and I have had some really interesting and exciting opportunities. This one is very special to me and came at the perfect time, we are celebrating our first anniversary, as well as the holidays. I hope the amazing youth in this country continue their efforts and I am very proud and honored to take part.
So far, they have organized a no-domestic-violence pledge/signature drive at several schools, and continue to collect wood for impoverished families that can’t afford fuel for the winter. Most recently, they collected gifts from local businesses and distributed them to disadvantaged children for New Year’s. Great kids! Stay tuned for more as I get updates!
