Design Corps, Pratt Institute

Grant Awarded: $15,000

A semi-independent academic initiative of Pratt Institute, the Design Corps aims to provide non-profit organizations with quality pro bono design services, while exposing communication design students to professional experience and the rewards of using their skills in the service of a good cause.

The Ideas that Matter grant went toward creating an identity and graphic presence for Design Corps, along with promotional materials that connect more clients to their services, more students to non-profit work, and more potential donors to Design Corps and their clients. The materials also offer other non-profits case studies that showcase how design can effect change.
