Warm, professional design + social media development for a growing nonprofit

 

Music Education & Performing Artists Association (MEPAA) is a nonprofit in Eugene, OR that provides affordable music and arts programming for women, at-risk youth, and low-income families. MEPAA has a wide variety of programs and social channels, so our work revolved primarily around creating and promoting the overall MEPAA brand while also raising awareness of specific programs.

Through intensive grant writing, program development, and marketing solutions (email marketing, rebranding of materials, website redesign, and social media), MEPAA had its most successful festival season in history and received funding to complete Phase One of a major expansion project that will bring arts programming to those who need it most.

Program Promo Gifs

MEPAA hosts a number of weekly workshops as well as special events throughout the month. In order to raise awareness and help our community differentiate between the various programs, I created multiple moving gifs and videos highlighting the workshops, what they are, facts about them, etc.

Giving Tuesday Donation Video

I collected interviews from some of MEPAA’s oldest and most committed students and volunteers to create this “Giving Tuesday” video campaign

Meet the Team   I designed and implemented monthly mailers and social posts featuring MEPAA’s various staff members and volunteers, their backgrounds, and how they contribute to the organization.

Clean, elegant design for a classic downtown spa

BRAND CONSULT
ATLANTA LYMPH

”I recently opened my small massage practice, and was overwhelmed by the prospect of using social media. I'm a bad millennial who is not very social media literate. I scheduled a phone consultation with Amrit, and she gave me some truly great tips that have increased the amount of views I'm getting. She also gave me some useful advice about improving my website's SEO. She really knows her stuff, and I had multiple pages of actual practical and doable notes and action items after our call. When it comes time for me to hire someone to manage my social media accounts, I'll definitely go to Amrit first.”

”I continue to be grateful and amazed at what Amrit creates for me, plus the ways she supports and promotes her clients. I’m going to have a lot of fun putting this [logo] all over stuff!”

Book Cover Design:
"I tend to try to do everything myself, so it took a lot of trust to hand over a project to Sage House. I was so pleased with the process and the outcome! Communication was clear and timely, and the end product was something I hadn't even known I wanted, but it was perfect. In fact, Amrit continued to suggest areas for improvement that I hadn't considered, going above and beyond. Highly recommended for services that combine the best of the heart and mind. Thank you!"
