Kentucky Center for Economic Policy

Trifold brochure for KCEP

Kentucky Center for Economic Policy (KCEP)

Logo and Print Collateral Design



KCEP needed a logo design and tri-fold brochure to introduce their organization as they began their work producing research; promoting public policy; and serving as advocates to decision makers on the need for policies that work for all. The Center conducts research analysis and education on important policy issues facing Kentucky’s commonwealth.


The final chosen logo conveys a sense of stability and trust. The client did not want anything edgy or showy. For the organization’s palette, we chose blue and tan; with secondary colors of green and brown. The logo design concept incorporates a grid—or graph—a tool that is recognized by all as a method often used to show and measure important data. The grid also serves as a subtle pattern throughout print material.

Roll-up banner for display at conferences or literature tables.

As the organization grew, it needed a banner to set up at conferences and rallies. Wild Olive Design created a small, retractable banner that coordinates exactly with the brochure cover. And it is easy to transport, set up and take down. Below: Jason Bailey, Executive Director, poses with the banner.

Above are cover designs for a few of the reports that KCEP produced, and I designed. In each case, Wild Olive Design was challenged to show the diversity of Kentucky in a way that represents the whole Commonwealth. For An Economic Agenda for a Thriving Commonwealth, I took silhouettes of everyday people and inserted everyday Kentucky locations inside. 

Below: The Five-Year Impact Report showcased all the work the Center had accomplished in a mere five years to help build and shape a better Kentucky. It is filled with charts and infographics to convey their message of everyone working together for the good of the Commonwealth.

With the report, An Economic Agenda for a Thriving Commonwealth, I designed templates for social media graphics that allowed the KCEP team to craft very specific messages to use on Facebook and Twitter.
