The resources to succeed
Autonomy and efficiency are critical for the ongoing management of AWF’s communications. Envelope’s solution comprises a flexible system, providing for the uniform documentation of projects, partners and news. Implementing this saves AWF significant time ensuring its limited resources are focussed on its mission to transform lives.
Brand elements are carefully considered and applied with consistency.

Ty and his team rationalised AWF’s communications into an efficient, easy to use architecture for our own team to use, saving time and money for an organisation with limited resources.”

Simple materials, memorable outcomes
A broadsheet, which doubles as a promotional poster, conveys the complete AWF story. Designed to be folded to A5 size it becomes the folder for a selection of case-studies, chosen specifically for the intended recipient. The complete package is ready for cost-effective posting to potential donors and partners.
A digital brochure provides a handy breakdown of the organisations strengths and abilities for prospective partners. The template is adapted for prospective clients.

Reaching the world

AWF commissioned Envelope to redevelop its online presence. A new website focusses on providing up-to-date information for AWF’s worldwide stakeholders and potential clients. A user-friendly content management system allows its small team to readily manage the site.

I have had the pleasure in working with Ty for more than twenty years, during which he has worked with us to create and develop the AWF brand, and helped us to achieve significant corporate sponsorship and public interest. He is a great listener, designer and supporter for all us working on design for the other ninety-percent!”
