Collaborative Classroom Identity

’Berta was challenged to create a new brand mark for an educational nonprofit following a merger. While the branding of the previous organization, Developmental Studies Center, was primarily focused on literacy, the new directive was to emphasize collaboration and community, and to move away from a strictly literacy focus. The new mark evolves the this nonprofit educational publisher’s logo with a focus on students, diversity, and collaboration, with a nod to books.

’Berta’s Role

For the duration of this project, ’Berta simultaneously:

  • rebranded the organization.
  • created new marketing collateral.
  • presented select options to the Executive Committee and incorporated their feedback.
  • partnered with the VP of Marketing to strategize the rollout of the rebrand.


As a result of ’Berta’s work on the project, the deadlines were met for rebranding product already in development to align with the new goals and focus of the organization, and customers and reps in the field had a more robust story to tell around the collaboration of students in the classroom as it relates to the curricula developed and sold into school districts by Collaborative Classroom. The branding has been very well received by staff and the field, with a positive connotation for potential customers.
