StreetLevel IV:
A Legacy of Justice (2009)

Thinkhouse Design was approached to explore the creative direction for the StreetLevel Conference in 2009, the theme of which is “A Legacy of Justice”.

A Legacy grows, like a tree, over time and will benefit those who never took part in its original planting. Its seed is taken from another tree, the fruit of someone else’s legacy. Justice flourishes when it is firmly rooted in a healthy place, growing and spreading out to provide relief and comfort, both visibly and invisibly.

We developed the visual identity, invitations, mailers, collateral and promotional materials, T-shirt, website, and program for the event.

StreetLevel III:
Truthtellers and Peacemakers (2006)

Thinkhouse contributed to the success of this national conference on poverty and homelessness with a solution that effectively addressed multiple audiences and languages, political issues, budget limitations, and an over-riding need for sensitivity and professionalism.

The graphics for all of the conference materials were based on waste billboard materials from scrap transit ads. All of the covers and divider pages were cut from these scraps, and all of the paper was sourced from end-of-line and discontinued stock, giving each book an entirely unique look. Even an unwanted piece of paper has been given a second chance.

Patterns of Promise captured a sense of the rich tapestry of CBM’s past and the continuance of that legacy in the future. Thinkhouse worked with the client to develop a name and creative for the 135 year anniversary held in India.

Thinkhouse Design: Ontario Prayer Breakfast

This identity draws its inspiration from the Trillium (the Provincial flower of Ontario) and the triquetra (the Celtic Christian symbol for the Holy Trinity.) The stylized Trillium includes three figures gathered around a table to uphold a central “O”. Thinkhouse Design was asked to redesign The Ontario Prayer Breakfast identity, in celebration of the organization’s 40th Anniversary.


Thinkhouse Design: solutions

We are able to distill a working hypothesis into a clear plan and to help you accurately define communication objectives, even when there is limited information or conflicting agendas. The challenge was to refine the existing logo for Save The Mothers and build consistency in all support material with defined brand standards. We’ve developed a high level of expertise in analyzing business objectives, competetive contexts and audience needs.
