The Shared Humanity Project

Brand Development

The Shared Humanity Project is a brand new, DMV-based, non-profit initiative, focused on helping address the systematic poverty that is plaguing our country. Branching off from A Wider Circle, SHP founders wanted to create an organization, founded on the principle that in order to tackle this generational issue, we must "bring together people of all ages, races, and backgrounds to work towards economic and social change and the advancement of humanity."

It was an honor to both Art Direct and fully design the brand for The Shared Humanity Project. I am very excited to see the progress that SHP will make in the coming years, in the fight against poverty.
