Designing for Good

Encouraging community and virality through a simple, sharable call-to-action.

As a member of the Creative Alliance, Trollbäck+Company works with organizations we feel are doing good in the world in collaboration with viral volunteer marketing producer Civic Nation. In 2019, we linked up with the United State of Women, a national advocacy group founded by first lady Michelle Obama pushing for female empowerment, grassroots activism, and women-led policy change in the United States.

Our campaign platform for USOW’s annual ambassador program worked to highlight USOW’s core mission to amplify the diverse and often unheard voices in the push for gender equality. The campaign centered around the line #RaiseHerVoice — a combination tagline, searchable hashtag, and nomination tool encouraging women to not only speak out but to organically spread the word about the program across platforms.

Campaign Kit

A multi-colored cache of 75 unique assets was designed to amplify the program across platforms.

A simple, bright and colorful design system brought the #RaiseHerVoice campaign platform to life, using a variety of animated videos, quote cards, campaign flyers, Instagram stories, and more to showcase the needs and benefits of a more united state of women.

Attention-grabbing copy and graphic animations reinforced the metaphor and group’s eagerness to amplify every advocate — while keeping things simple enough for small-screen real estate on each social platform. By the end of the campaign, USOW’s ambassador application pool increased 7o% from the previous year, exceeding the organization’s goal to recruit ambassadors in 35 states by 2019, and putting the organization well on its way toward connecting ambassadors in all 50 states by 2020.
