We teamed up with the National Head Start Association (NHSA) to update their parent brand and to create a new brand for their think-action tank, HeadStarter Network.
For over 40 years the Head Start program has provided early childhood education, health, nutrition, and parent involvement services to low-income children and their families. Head Start is one of the longest-running programs attempting to address the effects of systemic poverty in the United States by intervening to aid children.

We created a new identity system for NHSA’s new think-action tank, HeadStarter Network. In creating the mark we played off of NHSA’s heritage logo. The resulting logo creates an H and an N found in the negative space created by the initials. We chose a vibrant purple to match the energy and innovation of the new network. We also created an identity and colorway system for print, digital and conference collateral systems.
