Help Fund This project

Rise & Design began as a small idea back in 2016 when Yao and Danielle were having frequent coffee chats around being creative entrepreneurs and how to navigate through all of the pitfalls and successes that they dealt with day-to-day. Their perspectives from different industries highlighted the fact that these are common struggles that all creatives go through. Their vision for Rise & Design was to broaden out these important discussions to everyone in the Columbus, Ohio design community!

Now 3 years later, Rise & Design has grown to not only be this inclusive, vibrant community full of artists, designers, photographers, to name just a few…but also a place for resource, connection and support.

To celebrate this important milestone, Yao & Danielle have launched a brand refresh by one of our own, Remo Remo Design!

To start, Remo evolved the brand ampersand and sun rays to reflect the valuable time members put aside each month to become better entrepreneurs and freelancers. Along with the new logo, he also explored a new visual language and a set of icons to distinguish Rise & Design’s role in the community.

We cannot thank Remo enough for donating his time and creative effort in helping us with this project. All of our proceeds from our May 3rd Anniversary Bash will go towards Remo for this project. In addition, if you’d like to extend a helping hand outside of the anniversary event, we would really appreciate it!
