Revo Round Two

There have been a lot of incredible partnerships that we shared with you all over the course of 2010 and we’re sure not going to stop now! Plant With Purpose is proud to have the artistic and creative genius of Cody Small on our side as we move into 2011 with a bang. Cody is the graphic designer responsible for much of the creation and ongoing development of Plant With Purpose’s branding. What that means is that he designs the quarterly Sower newsletter, the annual report, and other miscellaneous pieces throughout the year so that we can clearly relay the impact that Plant With Purpose is having on so many lives internationally (and he just so happens to be my older brother… double bonus).
We are excited to announce his most recent work for Plant With Purpose to help us advertise and promote a fundraiser for Plant With Purpose’s long-term work in Haiti. He designed some incredible pieces for us and we wanted to share them with you all (please help us to spread the news in your networks as well!) The upcoming event is called Revo San Diego (http://www.revosandiego.com/) and it will be an evening of live music, drinks, and fun all for the sake of bringing people to together to support families in Haiti. On Saturday, January 29th in Northpark, San Diego we will celebrate the accomplishments of our staff and partners in Haiti as well as look forward to the goals in the coming year.
This last year Cody launched his own freelance graphic design firm called Caava Design (http://caavadesign.com), which focuses on everything from website design and development to branding and photography. Cody was just named one of the top 100 graphic designers in San Diego (a market with too many colleges, art institutes, graphic design programs, and not enough jobs to match the saturation of talent) by Sparkah.com. We are grateful to have his partnership and talent to help Plant With Purpose continue to reach more people with the inspiring transformational stories of farmers being empowered to provide for their families. Cody loves the holistic mission of Plant With Purpose and he has been actively involved with us for the past 3 years. Recently, Cody donated his graphic design abilities for this Revo poster design as well as some other great projects.
Cody’s bio at Caava Design:

Prior to founding Caava Design, Cody gained branding experience designing for clients such as World Vision, Starbucks, Diageo, Easton, Plant With Purpose, WD-40 and Westfield. He holds a BFA in graphic design from Point Loma Nazarene University. Affectionately dubbed “font savant”, he has an irritating knack for identifying any typeface that crosses his path. He spends most of his time behind a camera, or on his bike, sometimes simultaneously.
