1.1 Research Paper

Introduction Urban League of Hudson County, NJ is a non-profit organization established in 1972. This industry is focused on “Empowering Communities. Changing Lives.” by improving the quality of life in the urban areas and providing a variety of programs and services for their residents. Annually, Urban League serves more than 50,000 individuals with “leadership throughout the state in promoting initiatives that assist individuals and communities in their efforts to achieve economic parity” (Watson). Working together in the community with dedicated staff and professionals has helped each individual achieve goals and prepare for a lifetime of changes and chances on new beginnings. With technology on the rise it is very important for organizations to remain up to date with the current ways of communicating with their consumers. Using social media and continuous updates to the website will help to spread and grow the organization. It is the goal of the organization to reach all individuals that are experiencing financial hardship or just looking for an encouraging path to follow and to see that Urban League is the place for them. To attract kids and adults their website should be youthful, allowing them to visualize all Urban League has to offer by displaying photos of current events to encouraging words for motivation. Using less of a directory based website and more of an encouraging website will increase the Search Engine Optimization by directing more consumers to view the website. Promotional items and advertisements in the local newspaper as well as in the community library and bookstores will help to grab hold of every individual looking for a chance to achieve goals they are seeking to pursue. The main focus will be on the upbringing of youth in the urban communities, and encouraging their parents/guardians to allow Urban League to help ensure a brighter future and to strive to meet all their goals.

all of your children’s needs in beginning their education. In the growing process of any child they will begin to develop a particular skill or interest that will need further assistance where Urban League offers several programs devoted to the youth. Three awesome programs provided are the CEO Program, Mentoring Program and Journey to Womanhood. The CEO Program and Journey to Womanhood both help youth in boosting their confidence, self-esteem and to secure an understanding of leadership. To be a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) you will need to know the fundamental step in developing and managing a company for a successful outcome. Urban League will work to help guide students in a positive way of life success with goals set to “decrease interest in gangs and drugs, improve academic skills, increase selfesteem, positively impact attitudes about learning and school, improve school attendance, and provide personal encouragement and role models” (County, 2008). In the Journey to Womanhood, this program “addresses the many issues and decisions young

1.1 Research Paper

Solution Are we doing everything possible to make all residents aware of programs and services offered in their community through Urban League? Staying on top and current with the latest technology is what keeps consumers connected and loyal to their vendors. Currently their website lacks personalization and only focuses on the detailed information. Through evaluation given, “surveys suggest that consumers are increasingly relying on social media to learn about unfamiliar brands” (Naylor, 2012). By including photos of actual events/programs that have taken place will open doors to consumers as they browse the website. Also, adding a testimonials page will allow the consumers to read a statement from an actual attendee to gage how much Urban League’s programs have been a success in their life. With Urban League staying up-to-date with the website, making it user friendly and vibrant, displaying promotional advertisements in schools, community libraries, and book stores will help increase awareness on the life changing programs offered. This project is so important because it can save

How to reach Target Audience It is very important to reach your target audience the best way you can, by knowing where they may view or take information on Urban League. In the urban community, Urban League can come in contact with the local schools as well as familiarizing themselves with the common public transportation areas. Through this, the media that can be used to reach target audience would be print advertisements of

pamphlets, EDDM postcard, billboards, and

through the local radio station broadcasts. All of these advertisement options will help to instill the overall message that Urban League can help to make a difference in their life. Pamphlets are great for parents/guardians to grab on the go and read at a time that works best for them. Also, pamphlets can be used as a mailer to send to all those living in urban areas. EDDM postcard is great advertisement to reach a wide range of prospects all at the same time. This will allow everyone in the urban communities to receive information on Urban League in the comfort of their own home. A billboard advertisement can be viewed from far distance and also used as a reminder to those that may pass by the billboard frequently. These billboard advertisements can be posted up by the bus and train stops, and even inside them, which is also a great way to reach both child and adult. The local radio station can broadcast an ad for Urban League, by promoting a particular program each week. Repetition of the same program weekly will be great and like the billboards it will create a reminder to all interested and will give those listener another chance to reach out to Urban League.

Elements needed for Solution When thinking about the youth Urban League desires to help, vibrant, full of life and joyous colors come to mind. The colors need to bring out the message that will be taught through each program offered and help to guide each youth through their own personal journey. The color scheme used will be blue, red and purple. The actual colors have been found during the creation of the moodboard Builder/Encourage/ Uplift. These three main colors have been chosen based on the connection and also meaning of each that demonstrates what Urban League is striving to represent. “Red symbolizes: action, confidence, courage, vitality. Purple is the color of good judgment. It is the color of people seeking spiritual fulfillment. It is said if you surround yourself with purple you will have peace of mind. Blue symbolizes: youth, spirituality, truth, peace” (Gems, 2003). Urban League will represent the meanings and symbolizing’s of

1.1 Research Paper each color mentioned through the eyes of every child that desires a chance for change. Two other colors that may be used to balance out a layout or to make text legible at times due to graphic backgrounds are black and white. All images used will reflect those that live in the urban community. This will also cater to youth excelling to another level, single parent/guardian with his/her children, mentors and educators helping youth to reach their goals. Through all of these images it will encourage both parent and child to want to see all desired goals and dreams come to reality. The typeface envisioned for this campaign is a sanserif bold, eye catching and simple font that will also work well with any body text. On considering the best font to use in order to get the job done as been well thought out. “typography enhances the overall book design, helps to convey meaning and emphasize specific elements of the story in picture books” (Phinney, 2010). A simple yet striking font is what Urban League needs to get through to the target audience. The fonts envisioned to use for this campaign are News Gothic MT Italic and Bold, Lithos Pro Black, and Myriad Pro Regular. The headline will be News Gothic MT Bold or Lithos Pro Black, sub headline and/or tagline will use News Gothic MT Italic and Myriad Pro Regular for the body text. This will allow flexibility with colors and graphics that need to be used in order to get the message across.

Conclusion The main focus will be on the upbringing of youth in the urban communities, and encouraging their parents/guardians to allow Urban League to help ensure a brighter future and to strive to meet all their goals. By making the youth aware of all the opportunities available, will also show that they have options for their future. Urban League will reinforce the role of the parent/guardian on the importance of starting their child’s future now. Taking the time to focus on their main goals in life will set a mark on what is to unfold in the near future. Urban League is a team of well-educated individuals that has a desire to help make changes in the lives of those willing to give them a chance. Also having Urban League will be a place for many youth to go to after school and to keep away from the streets that may stir them in the wrong direction. The youth that gets the opportunity to see what Urban League has to offer will allow many doors in their future to open. Having a mind set to go to college and to even understand the principles of managing their own business at a young age is what Urban League is all about. The success of today’s youth will bring positive changes to the community and will be a great influence to the up and coming generation. Urban League needs the support of the community and the confidence in the parents/ guardians to allow them to do all that is necessary to create an everlasting change in our youth’s future.

Design Research Overview

Urban League’s mission is “Empowering residents and improving the quality of life in urban communities.” (Urban League, 2008) Through the mission statement alone it is trying to stir the consumers in the direction of success, leadership and better way of living. Urban League is made known to help those in urban communities and make all consumers aware of all programs willing and waiting to help all in need. The message that I want to focus on is a way of guidance and empowerment for the consumers to help their minds for a more

In an organization such as the Urban League, ads will bring direction to consumers that have been lost. Creating the perfect headline that will allow the consumer to read the fine print and make a decision on going straight or looking for that u-turn.

Being able to help youth, families and elderly be able to live a stable life has instilled trust in the consumers. By having a large age range we will have to be very mindful on the approach to not stir any consumers away or confuse them of the actual message being addressed. Urban League offers a lot of guidance on ways to support families with low-income, single family homes and those living in the urban city area.

Urban League wants to show positive outcomes that will be of great assistance to reaching future goals. This moodboard was chosen because it shows the step-by-step process on which Urban League can help many youth achieve desired goals in life. Creating friendship, looking up to a leader for guidance and taking great direction from those teaching you how to succeed is a great

start on a brighter future. Also wanted to show some connection with the color palette to the images by creating a dotted path. The placing of each word helps to describe the image onto which the dotted path is near. The dots were also created to form an arrow that is kind of pointing down to the next word and allowing it to travel to the corresponding image on the left.

Logo

Sketches & Final version Many of the sketches incorporated the first letters of the company U L and was kept simple to express a symbol that will help customers remember who Urban League is. Played with arrows that help to give the direction one may take and tried using stairs that indicates stepping toward your future Then, tried the “U” upside down to give the appearance of an umbrella with the “L” forming the handle. “A distinctive logo is one that can be easily separated from the competition. It has a unique quality or style that accurately portrays

26

your client’s business perspective” (Airey 30), is what the aim attended to display to work toward the right logo design. By continuing to play with different directions by turning each letter around or combining them to create another shape. “The brain takes more time to process language, so content is third in the sequence behind shape and color.” (Wheeler 52) With that in mind the creation of a shape that can stand-alone and allow emotion to derive from its visual became the primary focus.


2.4 Logo Development

The final logog interprets the look that was aiming for with the visual of stair to reflect what Urban League will be doing. “Stepping up” “Stepping into your Future” “Moving up” to just name a few that will relate to Urban

Leagues mission. Even though the logo does not have to reflect what it is that they do,it helped to express the elements to support simple and memorable brand.
