This project will save us $2,000, allowing us to reach more communities and help them to yield innovative solutions to otherwise intractable urban problems.

What We Need

  • The ability to communicate complex information using an easily interpretable visual aid
  • A high-resolution version of the Infographic in the Organization’s preferred format

How This Will Help

Our work spurs transformational change in communities by affecting things that are often labeled as "intangible": team-building, inspiration, trust, collaboration, inclusion, innovative ideas, creativity. When we are able to make those "intangible" things tangible for people, they understand our impact and how their own communities can transform and produce positive, tangible results to address complex societal issues. With a clear, modern, friendly, clean and inspiring infographic people will better understand who we are, what we do, and how we do it. Your skills will empower us to deliver our services to more people in the region, and get there faster.

What We Have In Place

We recently refined our communications on who we are and what we do, and we have consensus on that identity. We also have some examples of infographics we like, and we have several posters we'll share that help us communicate our organization's core values and our "formula" for success: "Creativity + Collaboration + Inclusion = Thriving Communities." We can articulate our process and outcomes concretely, despite working with the "intangibles" mentioned above, and value collaboration in order to reach the best idea possible.

Fun Fact

We strongly believe in the power of creativity and collaboration to fuel innovation. In this project you will have room for experimentation and thinking out of the box. We work with & value diversity on every level: socio-economic, multi-generational, ethnic & cultural, and sector/industry.

Our Mission

Creative New Jersey is dedicated to fostering creativity, collaboration and inclusion by empowering cross-sector partnerships in commerce, education, philanthropy, government and culture, in order to ensure dynamic communities and a thriving economy.

What We Do

We bring communities together on issues that are most important to them. Our “high-touch” approach to engagement enables us to work directly with citizens, business and nonprofit leaders, and government representatives, among others, to build trust, foster collaboration, ensure inclusion, and create a shared, multi-faceted vision for the community. The ultimate goal of our engagement process is to create and help sustain change. Our work implements human-centered design that puts the communities we work with at the center of everything we do.
