Kiva: Brand Redesign

  • Kiva Brand RedesignPrint & Web
    Brand redesign for Kiva, a non-profit microlending organization that supports entrepreneurs from developing nations. Through the exploration of business and design strategies associated with brand development, I contrived three solutions to aid in Kiva's success:
    1. Personalize the lending experience.
    2. Operate transparently.
    3. Unify and strengthen visual identity.

    The Kiva brand redesign began with identifying the problem with the brand and implementing a solution. Deliverables included logo design, brand toolkit, website, typography and color palette, business system, and marketing collateral.

    Kiva's visual identity is influenced by photography, a playful color palette, and circular graphics, which represent the lender/entrepreneur relationships within the Kiva loan cycle.
