Hunger Heros Logo

Trent Design has just completed work for a new campaign to support Gleaners Community Food Bank in the fight against Hunger. Asking its participants to become Hunger Heroes, this initiative invites volunteers, organizations and ordinary people to donate the funds Gleaners needs to increase its supply of food by 2,000,000 pounds.

Trent Design was accountable for designing the event logo, photo-shoot, mobile truck-skin graphics, website & avatars associated with the marketing and planning for this important event. Take a look:

Above: Identity for The 5ive 9ine

Trent Design was chosen to brand and promote The 5ive 9ine Business Association that represents a partnership with six municipalities that are on the Hall Road Corridor from Mound Road to I-94. The goal is to obtain over 1,000 memberships from the retail stores, movie theatres, well established fine dining, and entertainment venues.

The promotions and membership recruitment represents a system of convergence marketing (a combination of traditional, print and digital communications). The new brand integrates billboard advertising, brochures, postcards, and a color coded way-finding system that connects to a map of the 5ive 9ine region. Colors on the map help define stores based on their geography and retail industry.
