A common problem nonprofit agencies face is their inability to reach their target audiences. While often innovative in their development of and devotion to their mission and values, they often simply lack the resources and manpower to mobilize the correct kind of communicative campaign. Because nonprofits tend to rely heavily on support from community members and donors, the importance of effectively reaching out to them is of even greater importance.
The brainchild of Executive Director Christopher Gerke, Creative Go-Round (CGR) is a nonprofit design firm working to help other nonprofit organizations in the Chicagoland area. Located on the Chicago River just north of downtown, CGR offers industry-standard technology and facilities that enable our creative team with the tools and space to ideate, create and produce deliverables for our clients. For more than four years, our designers have come in from local design schools to create social change within their community and gain valuable knowledge, skills and experience.
Currently, CGR is accepting applications for new nonprofit clients that are in need of design and/or communications services. These new nonprofit clients will receive the benefits of a fully functional design firm without the high cost of other for-profit firms.
CGR is accepting new client interviews June 10-21 on a first come, first served basis. Meetings are set up in two-hour blocks, and will be conducted at the CGR office. This will be the last interview session held until fall, and all communication and design work will be completed during the summer and fall terms.
Whether you are a nonprofit looking for services, or if you know of a great organization that could benefit from CGR’s design studio, please spread the word about this outstanding nonprofit firm. Nonprofit clients interested in design services can apply on the CGR website (www.creativegoround.org/clients)
