Webinar | $49 Building an Effective Brand: How to Stand Out in a Noisy World

Our world is filled with noise. From advertisements to our own internal thoughts, every day people are bombarded with information. Because of this information overload, they only listen to brands that communicate simply and clearly. In this 45 minute webinar, first shared at the Raise More Together Summit in August 2020, Lauren Atherton shares the 3 steps to building an effective nonprofit brand that will cut through the noise and keep your organization top of mind.

Some of Our Favorite Tools

We often get asked about the best tools available for nonprofits, so we compiled our top recommendations to help you save time and money shopping around. These must-have resources help keep HeartSpark Design running smoothly and profitably and we hope they help you, too!

Adobe Creative Cloud

Adobe software is the best in the business for creating beautiful brands and marketing materials. We use InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Lightroom on a daily basis.


If you’re looking for reasonably priced fonts with worry-free licensing, then FontSpring is the perfect site for you! They have a great variety and you can even save fonts to collections and come back to them later.


The best resource for stock photography, illustrations, and vectors. They’re owned by Getty Images, which offers premium stock images, but iStock’s archive is extensive and much more affordable.

Some links included are to our affiliates and Heart Spark LLC may earn a commission on purchases made.

The way your nonprofit looks matters.

If you aren’t proud of your branding enough to put it on a t-shirt or tell other people about it, we can help! In a few weeks we can have your brand refreshed on and offline, and ready to wow your community.
