Non-Profit Spotlight: BRIDGE Fort Worth and Junior League of Arlington

We designed a website for BRIDGE Fort Worth a few years back and the board has been doing a stellar job operating the site independently ever since! BRIDGE is an organization for young black professionals in the Fort Worth area, focused on community involvement, education, and professional development. Green Apple Lane proudly supports diversity and inclusion and it is our hope that leadership positions in every type of organization continue to become more reflective of the communities they serve, and the population as a whole.

We were more than happy to create a site that better served BRIDGE's needs. The board wanted to have an online home for the organization to showcase event photos (with easy access to update with new photos and self-created event graphics often), promote upcoming events and professional opportunities, as well as the capability to sell memberships online, and the ability to host separate content for different membership levels, accessible by only members of that level. We were excited to jump in and find a solution to these challenges. As part of the design process, we also created some graphics to break up large text areas and to organize their information most efficiently, like the graphic shown above reflecting the difference in benefits between their two membership levels. BRIDGE has been very happy with the functionality of the site – they were able to take the reins and they've done a fantastic job ever since!

Most folks are familiar with the historic Junior League organization, one of the oldest women's clubs in the country (active since 1901)!

The 2017-2018 President of the Junior League of Arlington, April Pettitt, approached us prior to officially taking office to help develop a look for her theme for the year, "Heart is Key." We were proud to create a logo for JLA, and we love seeing it pop up continually on everything from social media graphics to members' T-shirts on the field at Dallas Cowboys stadium. These ladies are doing a ton of good in our community!

For the logo, we created a key graphic with a heart bow, and if you look closely, you'll notice the key cuts are edges of a heart, alternating between the point and the curved edge. Thanks for all you do, ladies!


We are blogging with a "Non-Profit November" theme this month to spotlight some of our favorite design projects for non-profit corporations. Be sure to keep up here and follow along each week to see what these amazing companies have been up to!

Non-Profit Spotlight: SHHS Alumni Association

Sam Houston High School is the second oldest high school in Arlington and one of the largest public high schools in the entire state of Texas, with a student body of well over 3,000. In 2013, the year of the school's 50th anniversary, a small group of alumni came together and quickly formed a full-fledged 501c3 non-profit organization. Since then, members have raised tens of thousands of dollars to support their alma mater and its recent graduates in the form of scholarships. Green Apple Lane is proud to have developed the branding for the association, as well as its website, which the current board members operate all on their own now (and they do quite a fantastic job). We still provide design services for their business cards, stationery, and social media graphics for a few of their ongoing drives and fundraising projects throughout the year, a favorite of which is the "Texans Helping Texans" program, shown below:

This organization does so much good for SHHS students, faculty, and staff, as well as the surrounding community and all of East Arlington!

Non-Profit Spotlight: Inspired Women Luncheon

The Inspired Women Luncheon is an annual event organized by the Arlington Chamber of Commerce Women's Alliance to celebrate women, recognize community leaders, and award college scholarships. This was our fourth year to serve on the IWL committee and also as design sponsor for the event! The growth of this luncheon has been astonishing, and for 2017, we were excited to create a logo, branding the event for years to come. Our designs for this year's IWL event included:

  • Social media square graphics & Facebook page cover images
  • Logo design & branding guide
  • Flyer design to promote sponsorship throughout the year
  • Event signage
  • Event program
  • Print ads in Arlington Today magazine

Below are a some select images of our work for this year's event as well as a few photos from the event itself, including the phenomenal speaker, Carrie Wilkerson, and sweet centerpieces by Sugar Bee Sweets (that's right; who needs flowers when you can have cakes, cookies, and cupcakes for centerpieces?!).

Green Apple Lane is a proud member of the Arlington Chamber of Commerce and we have loved participating in this wonderful event and helping it grow from around 300 attendees four years ago to over 650 this year! Save the date for 2018 – one thing's for certain, it will be FABULOUS.
