Literacy Impact Project
Study of Integrated Living Learning Programs
BOYS College is based on the premise that literacy is power, and that struggling and non-struggling readers and writers can achieve exponential growth when there is a combination of powerful literacy teaching and powerful texts. Therefore, BOYS College provides support to parents, teachers, school administrators and policy makers who continue to grapple with methods and approaches to move African American boys to advanced levels of reading and writing in the elementary grades.

The Assessment of Collegiate Residential Environments and Outcomes (ACREO) assesses the influence of residential environments on academic, intellectual, and social outcomes of college students. We invite your institution to participate in this national study, which will inform the conversation about effective student affairs practices in higher education for years to come.

DESIGN / BRANDING
Every project needs a strong visual identity. A logo or a brand aesthetic can communicate so much information to the audience. When we begin working with a new client, we determine who the audience is, how to reach them and what the take away is from the content we produce. With the National Commission of Asian American and Pacific Islanders Research in Education, we went through several iterations of a logo design until we found the right one for their audience of Policy Makers, Practitioners and Students.
Many clients ask us to develop a website to use as a home base for their recruitment and outreach efforts. The National Study of Integrated Living Learning Programs asked us to develop a digital presence where future participants could learn about the project and see if they qualified to participate. Additionally, it would serve as a portal for participants to actually connect with the SILLP team to register themselves in the project. A website allows you to have complete control of your story and your audiences experience.
Disseminating compelling statistics can be difficult. With a fully illustrated infographic, a research group can showcase the most compelling data to peak their audiences attention and have a dramatic impact on the observer. Sound Art, a nonprofit teaching rock music in undeserved schools in Los Angeles Unified School District needed a way to showcase the need for their program to potential donors and supporters. This infographic not only explains what Sound Art does, but also explains the need for the work they are doing. Additionally, UndocuScholars wanted a way to tell a compelling story and affect their audiences feelings about the known data on undocumented college students. This infographic weaves a compelling narrative while minimizing a reliance on pure textual storytelling.
Web Video is the leading form of content audiences consume while interacting in the digital sphere. We offer a fully customizable video production unit that can tell the stories text on a page simply can’t. Sound Art, a nonprofit teaching rock music in undeserved schools in Los Angeles Unified School District, needed a way to bring the experience of a Sound Art class out of the classroom and into the awareness of potential donors. The music, the movement the energy simply couldn’t have been captured in a blog post or a mass email. This video allowed the audience to experience that joy for themselves and go inside the classroom without leaving their own home.
Web animation is an audience engager! Studies show immediate movement on a web page, draws the audiences’ eyes to the content and they will view it three times longer than a static image. Animating data allows for a more complex narrative to be told, also it's more entertaining and compelling! The National Study of Integrated Living Learning Programs asked us to tell the entire story oftheir project in three sentences, but to make sure we to engaged the audience immediately. We designed this full illustrated motion graphic to meet their needs. And it worked out pretty well!
If you want an audience to pay attention, you need to have something for them to engage with. In today’s digital world, content is king. We develop and design a social media strategy that is in-line with out clients needs and produce content to fuel that strategy. For the Undocuscholars Project, we needed to engage an audience that was living in the shadows. We developed content that would meet the the undocumented undergrads where they were at, engage them and build a sense of trust with them. As the audience grew, the social media impact grew as well. The project secured enough participants to be a success and the content we produced reached audience members in all 50 US states, (even Europe, Central & South America and Africa!)
