The Big Idea

Bringing to life the brand promise of a student-centered journey supported by a program with unparalleled breadth, depth and longevity.

The Opportunity

For 75 years, Denver Kids has helped unlock the potential of thousands of Denver Public Schools youth, empowering them to set goals for the future, and to feel confident and supported on their journey to achieve their dreams. After a merger with another youth-serving organization in 2019, and the significance of a 75th Anniversary in 2020, the timing provided the perfect opportunity to examine their brand position, messaging, visual identity and website—all important signals of their long standing brand promise.

The Solution

Waypoint Collective developed an identity that evokes every Denver Kids’ unstoppable path of growth and achievement. The mark also references the constant evolution the organization has undergone over 75 years, an agile and responsive approach that has allowed them to grow and flourish through drastically changing times, and to be uniquely suited to meet the ever-changing needs of students across the decades.

The Creative

The identity—full of motion, bold in color, modern and confident—is every bit a reflection of Denver Kids students and the team who work tirelessly to support their success.
