I DESIGN for all sorts of non-profit organizations, creating branding from the ground up, re-branding established organizations or incorporating existing branding into event invitations, brochures or other materials.

beth el sign

As CONGREGATION BETH EL underwent a major renovation, I created new branding: logo, color palette, business collateral and signage.

Design work for Beth El is an ongoing project.

Logo and print designs for Congregation Beth El

signage for congregation beth el

My objective was to create a pleasing and clear system of way-finding signage that reflects Beth El's branding. The completed signs range from small and simple room identifiers to large directional signs. 

I designed custom-cut dimensional signs to designate named or other special spaces within the building, and I also designed several unique commemorative signs and plaques. Materials used include brushed aluminum, wood and acrylic. All signage fabricated and installed by Larry Aufiero of Project-Sign. Photos by Joy Yagid (except as noted).


First Book is a nonprofit social enterprise that provides new books, learning materials, and other essentials to children in need.

My work with the organization, which already had a logo and design standards, includes revision of their logo to reflect their 25th anniversary as well as new marketing materials.




Emerge New Jersey is the NJ chapter of a national program that prepares Democratic women to run for office.

I used their existing logo to create materials for fundraising events. 

achieve foundation

I was part of a team of designers that rebranded the Achieve Foundation, formerly known as the South Orange/Maplewood Education Foundation. For the duration of my 12 years on the Achieve Board of Trustees, I was the lead designer for the Foundation, creating branding for a number of signature fundraising events, including Night of 100 Dinners, and the Take a Seat Campaign, which raised significant funds for the restoration of the Columbia High School Auditorium.



This networking group was in need of an identity make-over. I created both an icon and logotype and incorporated both into a design for the organization's website.

temple b'nai jeshurun

I created a 20-page stepped booklet with envelope to commemorate the conclusion of the synagogue's successful capital campaign. 

fund for an open society

I created Integral, an 88-page journal for Fund for an Open Society, working closely with a wonderful editor. My work encompassed all design aspects of the journal: nameplate (title) and interior design, including specification of color palette, type, headlines, section headers and styles, masthead and table of contents, as well as layout of all of the journal's content. Even though Integral was published without a sequel, this is work of which I'm very proud.
