It’s the end of April, which means designer Tim Hammond and I mined another month of the finest nonprofit designs from every corner of our fine planet. We found this month’s curation to be even more impactful and impressive than our first episode with mediums ranging from interactive design to even sculpture (look close).
But even with all of this creative diversity, you’ll find a common purpose in each design, every month.
Whether the design be visceral and gritty or lighthearted and humorous, each shares a singular purpose. Each design is meant to provoke a reaction and elicit a response for good. Each nonprofit is making a thousand voice, message, and pixel choices to push the world to engage, support, and advocate for a better world.
So are you are crafting email appeals, developing content across social channels, or is a full-time designer doing everything? Do you spend time and energy to painstakingly “get the message right”? Let these designs shout at you that it’s time well spent. Know that your energy and passion is making a difference to your organization and growing it’s impact by inspiring others.
Soak these in and stay proud, fellow designers!

How many “Save the Date” event collaterals have you received in mail? Would be very hard to ignore this splashy mailer by Jane Gleissner (@JBackes) for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia(@ChildrensPhila).
And lastly, some promising student designs for nonprofits…
