Bringing the energy of mindfulness
to the design process.
Mindfulness is the energy of compassionate awarness. Cultivating this energy helps us to be more fully present with each moment of our lives, and to connect more deeply with others. It helps us to engage with a relaxed mind and open heart, responding to circumstances that arise in a grounded, effective way.
At RippleWorks, mindfulness is intrinsic to strategic design; promoting synergistic alignment in a comprehensive approach to facilitating adaptive change and resolving constraints in technical, human, aesthetic, and business concerns. Whether reimagining how to visually represent your organization on the web, or considering new solutions to streamline workflow, and promote a healthy atmosphere for your team –– we start with understanding.
Each piece of printed collateral is a work of art, and a calling card – a chance to tell the world about what you do and invite interest.
We can compose a coordinated package of materials to reinforce your brand; create a logo or sub-mark variations; or work on individual projects including flyers, brochures, or catalouges.
Imbued with a sense of personality, built on precise language and presented with visual potency, print media is a vehicle of lasting impact.
Some of our most rewarding projects involve working at the program and operations level. We work to understand the culture of your organization and help identify and shape oportunity for growth.
We've designed and implemented innovative pilot programs in public schools; developed service-learning infruastucture for a college and surrounding community; secured grant funding for education programs; and facilitated sucessful
adaptation of new technology to increase organizational capacity.
We help you tell your story in a compelling, dynamic way.
From web deisgn to engagement strategy, we can help identify the right technologies to support your goals, and integrate web copy, photography and striking graphic elements to skillfully convey your message and engage your audience.
We can also help you connect more deeply with the mission and heart behind all you do, to shape your message in a centered, authentic way that truely inspires.
–– Our Team ––
Selene Hoover is our lead design strategist. She developed her approach to design though a series of experiential, self-designed degree programs. With a lot of help from some very good mentors and advisors, she co-wrote several grants, developed pilot programs, mentored other college students, and completed graduate level conceptual and practicum work, but her documentation suffered in execution until she failed at something pretty badly and had to work hard to get better.
She began formal graduate study with a focus on "facilitating generative change" and asked herself what would happen if she dropped academic conception, and focused on "being the change she wished to see." It's been quite a ride since then! We'll soon be adding more information on the Story Lab project Selene is working on. Until then, contact us with any questions!
Serra Hoover was once described as a "fully awakened being challenged only by the being a dog in a human-centric word." She is our morale manager. She helps us keep it real.
Garrett Hoover is an avid adventurer skilled in the art of perspective. He works as our digital asset manger, and brings a keen sense of balance and flow to all aspects of collaboration, improving everything we do.
