Rebrand, Redesign, Campaigns & Website Development

We live in one of the richest cities in the world. Yet one out of four of our residents suffer from food insecurity. Say what?! Yes, that means they actually do not know where their next meal will be coming from.

Three years ago when we first heard this statistic, we were thrust into action, eager to help in any way we could. That has resulted in a revamped brand, it has led to the design and promotion of events such as One Big Table and Hack Hunger. It has led to print ads, bus wraps, outdoor signage, an annual report, logos and of course a brand new website.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the director of marketing and communications at San Francisco Marin Food Bank.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Sköna?

We're a non-profit with limited resources, so we needed a vendor that would help us with our brand strategy and work with our budget.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They provide strategic brand counsel, helping us develop our brand identity. They’ve developed our website and continue to maintain it. They also produce our annual reports and collateral for our annual gala. When we have various events or campaigns, Sköna creates campaign microsites for us. In addition, they provide design services, such as redesigning our newsletter and creating infographics. We've had advertising campaigns in the community and Sköna has helped us with both the concept and the production.

How did you come to work with Sköna?

I joined the company after the relationship had already started.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in May 2014 and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We've seen a huge jump in our web traffic after Sköna redesigned our website in 2016 and helped us create an ad campaign that extended across all of our channels. December is the most important month of giving for us and we’ve noticed that our traffic has been increasing about 60% year after year.

How did Sköna perform from a project management standpoint?

They're incredibly responsive. We have weekly check-ins with our account executive and our web strategist. They're great communicators and meet their deadlines.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We feel like we're the most important client to them. They bring their best talent to the project and pay a lot of attention to us. Also, they're willing to work with a non-profit, so it's like a gift in many ways.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Not at all.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They're a great strategic partner, so they'll take care of everything for you.
