Our home is the beautiful seaside city of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. We truly love this community and the place we get to call home.
DARCI Creative has been in Portsmouth for fifteen years. Our current office has a overlooks the African Burying Ground, a public park and sacred place that reminds us to honor our history and treasure all members of our community.
We’re big on community. Our team is proud to have branded and helped establish some of Portsmouth’s most well known businesses, from local community banks to popular retail shops. We have also donated our branding and marketing services to non-profit organizations like Veterans Count, The Chamber Collaborative of Greater Portsmouth, Hungry for Hope (and many more) through long lasting partnerships. These are just a few of the truly rewarding relationships we have nurtured within our vibrant Seacoast community – a community that has supported us for all these years, too.
When Darci joined the Seacoast Chapter Board over seven years ago, people simply didn’t know about Veterans Count. We helped tighten the brand, redesigned their logo, created a new positioning line (Supporting Our Military and their Families), and redesigned their website to include each regional branch of Veterans Count.
Our execution included public relations, video production, and event branding and coordination for a variety of Veterans Count benefits (of which we provided materials like programs, event graphics, itineraries and the like). Two events that stand out are ones that we created and branded: the Pack & Boots 5K Road Race and their annual Gala, the S.O.S. “Salute Our Soldiers” dinner.
With our help, Veterans Count has blossomed into a well-known philanthropic organization in New Hampshire – and one that we are proud to have played a part in building.
When we first met them, the Child Advocacy Center wasn’t effectively communicating their brand and their mission with the community. They needed a brand refresh, as well as a welcoming online presence that was an accessible and safe place for the children and families they served.
We crafted a new logo for the Center with the hands of a child and adult coming together, with the tagline Turning Hurt Into Hope. We incorporated bright colors into their brand and website, making strategic decisions to empower these child victims through powerful branding. Our Senior Art Director, Regan got involved by organizing a Halloween-themed Party for a Purpose, a benefit whose proceeds went to the Child Advocacy Center. We love that she helped create something worthwhile from a fun event, and it’s a cause we are proud to get behind.
