Client: 826 Valencia Project Team: Creative Direction: Adam Brodsley, Eric Heiman Art Direction: Eric Heiman Design / Illustration: Talin Wadsworth, James Provenza Development: Matt Glaser / Squonk Studios 826 Valencia is dedicated to supplementing the education of students ages 6-18, and to helping teachers get their students excited about the literary arts. The project goal was to both update the look and feel of the 826 Valencia identity and to build a site with an extensive back-end system for managing volunteers, workshops and students. The site provides rich, fun content aimed at parents and kids alike—click on Mr. Blue and he might tell you,"Your parrot is drab and inarticulate." The site was launched to rave reviews and has greatly improved the organization's ability to engage their audience.
