Proof it Works

Lee Snelgrove
Executive Director, One Columbia

We're incredibly happy with the success of the unified Burning of Columbia branding and website. It let us have a distinct way to bring together all of the nearly 30 organizations and their myriad of associated events. By simplifying the branding, we were able to draw larger and diverse audiences to the series and feature the full range of Columbia's cultural and historical community.
