Brand Refinement

As part of an organization-wide effort to raise the integrity of Healing Transitions’ brand and increase public awareness in preparation for a capital campaign public launch in 2020, Angel Oak Creative overhauled Healing Transitions’ brand including both its logo and its messaging. In addition to formalizing branding standards, Angel Oak Creative built a marketing canvas to ensure consistency in messaging.


Website Overhaul

Angel Oak Creative also overhauled Healing Transitions’ website as another initiative to increase public awareness in preparation for a capital campaign public launch. The effort resulted in improvements to functionality, information-flow and refined messaging. Iconography and minimalistic design were also prime focuses of the updated website.

Collateral Development

Angel Oak Creative developed a number of collateral pieces focused on both the organization and the capital campaign. Examples include an organizational mini-booklet, annual report, impact story cards, a donor welcome packet, a corporate one-sheet and a capital campaign case statement to name a few.


Visual storytelling is an impactful way to showcase the power of recovery. Angel Oak Creative produced a testimonial piece told through the eyes of a Healing Transitions’ participant-turned-employee to accompany its annual report.
