Hyperquake announces the second annual “Do Good Initiative” for non-profits


Hyperquake, the Cincinnati-based brand evolution agency, announced today the launch of their second annual Do Good Initiative. This program is designed to support local change-makers by providing pro bono creative services to a deserving local nonprofit.

Hyperquake will be accepting written applications until June 30 from local nonprofits who believe their mission and reach could benefit from free creative brand services. Hyperquake will conduct interviews with a short-list of applicants, and announce the selected organization by July 31.  

On Friday, October 12 and Saturday, October 13, 2018, the chosen organization will attend a 2-day brand development event at Hyperquake, where they will have the opportunity to work with strategists, designers, and project leaders to develop their brand identity into something their stakeholders can continue to be proud of. Hyperquake will also partner with talented locals to provide other creative services in support of the new brand, like photography, collateral printing, or production, to help the nonprofit serve more people and touch more hearts.

“We know it can be difficult for nonprofit organizations to identify funds to evolve their brand,” says Dan Barczak, partner and chief creative officer of Hyperquake, “and that can hold their organization back from maximizing its impact. We know better than anyone that creating a brand that truly reflects your values takes time, funds, and a lot of hard work. We want to give that opportunity to a deserving organization that wouldn’t otherwise have access to creative talent.”

In 2017, Hyperquake’s first annual Do Good Initiative provided a new name, brand identity, and supporting materials for Fourthwall Youth Studios (previously Stages for Youth), a nonprofit dedicated to introducing Cincinnati’s youth to the creative industry through the making of short films. Fourthwall has since moved into a permanent studio space in OTR and expanded to include an after-school program. 

All 501(c)3 nonprofits who serve a core audience within metropolitan Cincinnati are invited to apply. Questions can be directed to dogood@hyperquake.com.

If you're a creative looking to contribute, please contact dogood@hyperquake.comto share your interest and capabilities. Services for which we may need volunteers could include photography, videography, collateral printing or production, copywriting, or web development.
