The WRV graphic identity has been in use for many years and has served us well.
WRV is REBRANDING and we’d like your input!
Join us for a 90 minute charrette* on Thursday, June 3 at 7pm to collaborate on a vision for Wissahickon Restoration Volunteers’ graphic identity. Sign up below — three participants will be selected at random to receive new WRV merch when it becomes available!
We’ve teamed up with Felicia Blow of Two Minds Press who will facilitate an open dialog to generate ideas that will lead to a redesign of WRV’s logo, color scheme and imagery, and eventually some swag!
Felicia Blow is a designer, screen printer, and illustrator based in Philadelphia. Blow started Two Minds Press in 2018 to create original hand-printed apparel, accessories, and prints around themes of emotionality, wordplay, social justice, and radical joy. Below are some samples of her work:

*What’s a charrette, you ask? A charrette is a collaborative planning process that harnesses the talents and energies of interested parties to collaborate on a vision, essentially a forum for exploring a diversity of design ideas. The word charrette is French for “cart” or “chariot.” Its use in the sense of design and planning arose in the 19th century at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, where it was not unusual at the end of a term for teams of student architects to work right up until a deadline, when a charrette would be wheeled among them to collect up their scale models and other work for review. The furious continuation of their work to apply the finishing touches came to be referred to as working en charrette, “in the cart.” [Wikipedia]
