We are offering in-kind branding services to youth-led organizations that are looking to develop their brand identity or revitalize their current brand.

Groups that are approved for our Branding Buddy Program will be provided with one-on-one consultations with FES’ Creative Director and founder of ekho Design, Kathryn Hoffart, a marketing firm, or a marketing professional, to develop a branding package and strategy for your team. Other organizations will be paired with alternate service providers and firms that specialize in brand identity and development.


At the end of the Branding Buddy Program, youth organizations will have a brandbook that includes:

Logo design
Logo usage guidelines
Colour palette
Typography guidelines
Language recommendations


The provision of services will take approximately one-month depending on the frequency of your team’s availability for consultations. Here is the general timeline:

Week One

One-hour initial consultation with the Branding Buddy to discuss the vibe and feel of your organization, as well as your vision for communications.

The Branding Buddy will develop some initial design ideas for your brand.

Week Two

The Branding Buddy will share design and identity ideas for you to review and provide feedback on in another one-hour consultation.

The Branding Buddy will incorporate feedback and make adjustments based on your recommendations and vision.

Week Three

The Branding Buddy will book another consultation with you to show final versions of the logo and colour palette + typography recommendations.

The Branding Buddy will incorporate final recommendation and feedback.

Week Four

The Branding Buddy will present your final brandbook and images.
