New normal? No problem!
One thing the COVID-19 pandemic has proved to us all, we can accomplish what we set out to even if it has to be done completely remotely.
As a design studio, we want to assure you that even if you’re not based in the same city as we are, we can still work with you remotely and produce quality work. Our passion for supporting good causes extends beyond our city’s borders.
In fact, even before the pandemic, we were already working remotely with two organizations; Recovery Cafe San Jose, and Golden State opportunity.
Once we establish a working relationship with any nonprofit, we are an email, a phone call, or a Zoom meeting away.
A word from Robert Cooper, CauseLaunch founder:
I worked in the for-profit world out of college and spent time as a creative director at an ad agency. After a stint in advertising, I landed a job with the American Red Cross. Then my eyes were opened — using my skills for positive change was much more gratifying.
After working within the American Red Cross of Greater Los Angeles communication & marketing department for more than 10 years, I left and worked several years as a freelance designer and web developer with an emphasis on supporting nonprofit marketing teams. Sometime later, I started CauseLaunch — a design studio that would focus on producing high-quality graphic design and web development exclusively for the nonprofit sector.
Reflecting back, it was great working with American Red Cross of Great L.A., an organization with a six-figure marketing budget, but in reality, I quickly saw that most nonprofits didn’t have the financial means to staff in-house designers, marketers and web developers. In fact, many nonprofits have their staffers filling multiple roles in the early years, and a revolving door of volunteer marketers creates inconsistencies in branding. A “grass roots” mentality is exciting starting out, but it is not a sustainable way to grow a nonprofit.
And while volunteers are the life-blood of every nonprofit, volunteers still don’t have the experience needed to take your “brand” to the next level like a 501(c)(3) deserves.
The main mission of CauseLaunch is to make sure small to medium-budget nonprofits are able to have the same quality of work as if they were a large-budget nonprofit (but, without having to spend big bucks). At the end of the day, yes, it might be a financial sacrifice working with nonprofits, but knowing that my talent and effort is helping to change the world — for good — makes it all worth it.
