The brand is centered on being accessible, realiable, and results-driven, while standing out in a sometimes stale market.

To achieve everything the client wanted in the brand, we started with BKO’s proprietary Thought ProvokersTM process. The journey from ideation to execution revealed how we can best reach an audience looking for something different - and effective - to enhance the work they do. Focalize’s clients are committed to serving their communities. We wanted to create a brand that infused some colour into what they do.

The strategy behind the website was to help the reader quickly understand how Focalize will help them achieve greater outcomes for their social service programs.

Putting positive imagery of both constituents - clients and those they serve - lead the reader to imagine the amplification of their efforts by working with Focalize.

The homepage itself tells a fluid narrative of the services and impact; should the reader go no further, they will understand the value of Focalize’s services as well as have an opportunity to evaluate their own.

Responsive design helps Focalize’s clients get the message wherever they are.

The team at BKO helped bring the Focalize vision into reality. From their acute understanding of how to design a brand to their ongoing support to ensure the success of a socially aware business is unmatched.
