We all understand the importance of branding for any entity, whether it's a corporate entity or a non profit organization. Branding is crucial, it's in simple terms: the medium with which the essence of a group is conveyed consistently to the world. Design is a critical component of communication. Having visually appealing communication channels is very important as it conveys explicit or subtle messages about who we are, what we do and how we do it.
Quality is of critical. Since Lamba Lab's inception, we have relied on fast methods to meet critical deadlines which contributed to the development and design of non consistent tools and layouts of medium quality. Being pragmatic and quick in delivery was very important and still is. However now comes the time to really stress on the importance of design reflected in all our work and this groups task is to allow LLBH to reach that level.
We have great designers among us with extensive experience in illustration, brand creation and development, web design and marketing. It's a shame not to leverage the talents we have in our members.
