Total Branding


Brand Vision Board

In order to identity a new brand's identity, a vision board is crucial.

By combining modern feminine tones, textures, and some seriously cool girls (hey, Gina Rodriguez!) - this board propelled the BOLD Academy's brand in the right direction.


Brand Snapshot

As part of our pitch, we created a quick "snapshot" board to show what BOLD Academy's logo and brand would look like in action.

In this phase, we developed phrases and layouts to capture BOLD Academy's brand, voice, patterns, and layout styles in one glance.

The slogans The BOLD Standard and Reach Higher, Go Further, Lead Stronger both communicate the standard of excellence and empowerment BOLD Academy aims to inspire in its graduates.

Final Brand Board

BOLD Academy's final brand board combines deep and pastel hues, geometric patterns, and a versatile collection of logos to bring this brand to life.

The BOLD Academy isn't your typical summer camp. This truly unique brand that will make the Academy's voice and identity stand out from the rest. 



Original Name Creation

The original name of BOLD Academy was a long, confusing acronym - and we wanted to fix that.

We crafted BOLD Academy's name to stand for exactly what the academy itself stands for: Black & Brown Opportunity, Leadership & Development.

This catchy and memorable name communicates the goal of the program in a succinct and powerful way. It also makes it clear that by pairing these girls up with mentors and the Academy's skills they will be prepared to confidently take on the world. 👊🏽
