Stoked

STOKED - community service initiative by spark that includes service days and non-profit branding

Helping those who do good, feel good.

In 2017, we asked ourselves, Why we don’t give back more? Enter Stoked: A pro bono nonprofit rebrand. Since then, Stoked has become an agency-wide initiative that now includes special projects and days spent volunteering at local charities. We’ve rebranded a summer camp, cleaned up a shelter, sorted food for the community, and so much more.

Rebrand

Many smaller nonprofits invest their money in their cause — not their branding. So every year, the SPARK team selects a nonprofit to rebrand for free. They share their compelling mission, we bring the creativity and strategy. At the end of it all, we provide easy-to-use guides that ensure the brand stays consistent and effective long after the project. We’ve been lucky enough to work with:

2017 Special Camp for Special Kids
2018 Alpha House of Tampa Bay
2019 Shark Allies
2020 Truthshine
Special camp for special kids

The pro bono effort with a simple goal of making more smiles.

As a summer camp for children and young adults of varying abilities, each session of Special Camp is a life-changing experience. However, Special Camp’s brand couldn’t communicate that. After awarding them our 2017 nonprofit rebrand, we created a warmer, more approachable identity focused on their greatest value of all — love.

Truthshine

A space for a more complete St. Pete narrative.

What began as a conversation with Truthshine’s founders, Tony Collins and Steve Sanger, turned into a passion project and then into a platform to highlight stories of racial injustice. Along the way, we got an education about our own community. Truthshine exists to reveal local stories that have been hidden, masked, or overlooked in the nostalgic storytelling of our city histories, built on the notion that we must help share a more complete understanding in order to create true justice.

Create

We also help local charities create compelling content for education and fundraising. We offer our award-winning studio to concept, shoot, and edit brand videos that showcase the nonprofit’s life-changing work. We’ve created video content for:

Academy Prep Center of Tampa
Make-A-Wish® Southern Florida with Tampa Fire Rescue
Shark Allies
Academy prep center of tampa

We told the story with those who tell it best — the children.

Academy Prep Center of Tampa is a rigorous private middle school for at-risk children in Tampa, FL. They give students extended hours of education, life skills, community engagement, and a sense of confidence not always present at home or in their neighborhoods. In preparation for their yearly donor appreciation event, Academy Prep needed a video that captured this impact.

Serve

We aren’t afraid of getting our hands dirty. Each quarter, we take a half-day to go out into the community and volunteer our time. We’ve sorted food, cared for animals, and collected donations for an at-risk shelter for families. Our team has partnered with:

Feeding Tampa Bay
Metropolitan Ministries
Humane Society of Tampa Bay
Pet Pal Animal Shelter
ALPHA House of Tampa Bay
