Innovation Exchange Logo Design

We designed a promotional event logo providing new tools and workshops for educators incorporating design thinking and innovation in their elementary and middle school curriculums. This yearly event help create a tech community of teachers and school programming aligned with Bricolage’s goal for equitable education for all.

Through the Innovation Exchange, educators attend two-hour sessions observing an innovation class and a design thinking workshop.  At this community event, teachers worked with students to plan a playground for Bricolage’s future campus.

The goal of the promotional logo was to draw upon Bricolage’s advocacy for educational equity and visualize this open-minded exchange no matter the school, teacher, or student.

How we solved the challenge visually

As Josh Densen, Founder of Bricolage Academy, explains: “When educators cross lines of difference and come together from private schools, charter schools, and traditional public schools, you end up with greater access to ideas, concepts, and experiences that often aren’t available to everybody equally or equitably.”

The logo incorporated the well-known Bricolage spiral ‘i’ now seen as an energetic exchange. The consistency of the shapes within the logo echoes the extension of the Bricolage brand.

What Clients Say

Mary Louise led Bricolage’s community outreach and constituent workshops with staff, students and John McDonogh alumni. Remarkably, she listened to varied points of view, drew connections across occasionally in conflicting community values, and emerged with a new Bricolage brand that united disparate communities under a single identity honoring our separate pasts and looked to a united future that we could all share.
