Spark Corps is a design non profit specializing in branding and design strategy. We believe in providing professional development and mentorship to young designers while also creating high quality design work for non-profits and social impact organization. To do this, we pull on our strengths in visual design, critical thinking and global awareness. This skill set allows us to communicate the needs and missions of our partners while also allowing us to develop designs that provoke thought and inspire change.
We also believe in providing services to all groups that produce work for social impact, regardless of social, religious, and economic identifiers. We find it important that the organizations we partner with also reflect these values.
Social Impact Focus
During our apprenticeships, we work with young designers to polish their design skill and provide them with partner focused professional development.
We work with global change makers to attack social problems and design solutions that will benefit communities across the globe. We aim to build long term relationships with our partners as we invest in their missions.
To measure the success of our work and client communication, we document all of our partner projects through a blog-style process book, highlighting the start and finish of each project as well as a 6-month follow up with partners.
Hot off the press! Spark Your Design Creativity
Spark Your Design Creativity is an activity book that introduces kids to design while also helping them to build skills to foster creativity and 21st century thinking. This Summer, our design apprentices led a Kickstarter campaign raising over $7,000 to get our first shipment of 500 books! Now, you can purchase your very own copy on Amazon.
Spark Corps Year In Review
Each year, our team crafts visual summaries of our work, achievements and future goals. We do this to both share our successes and challenges with the community as well push how nonprofits can communicate their programming in an innovative way. Stay tuned for our 2016 review!
In the summer 2015, Spark Corps welcomed it's first class of corps members via an 8 week beta program. During the program, Orange Sparkle Ball shadowed Allie Miller and Grace Cha to document their experience.
