With more than 20 years of design experience in Vermont, we regularly come across our work out in the world: on signs, on social media, in stores, in publications. And sometimes, we come across instances that remind us that our creative work can be a part of something bigger, something that has a truly lasting impact on generations to come.
Earlier this year, we created a logo for an initiative of Vermont EPSCoR called BREE, Basin Resilience to Extreme Events in the Lake Champlain Basin. It’s a scientific endeavor that strives to answer the question of why some parts of the basin and its watersheds are resilient to extreme weather events while other parts fail to rebound — an important question to answer as we face lake-related environmental issues in our warming climate.
The BREE initiative of Vermont EPSCoR received a $20 million federal grant To continue this important work. The award, one of the largest in Vermont history, was announced by U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy and University of Vermont president Tom Sullivan. The effort will help legislators develop policies that reach far into the future of our state.
We’re proud to have played a tiny part in an effort that will have lasting impacts on the region we love.
