WHO WE ARE

Because Collective is a group of like-minded marketing and design professionals dedicated to social good.  We came from a variety of backgrounds including the corporate and agency worlds, journalism, academia, design and small business ownership. We are boutique in size and global in vision and we help our clients stand out from the crowd with a mix of impactful brand identity, strong online presence and creative communications strategies.  We’ve had great success in elevating the profile of our clients by telling their stories through placements in local and national media outlets, eye-catching branding and packaging, effective and cost-efficient websites, and flawless event planning and management.  We’ve even helped some clients land their products in their first retail locations.

But we don’t stop there. At Because Collective we believe a commitment to social and environmental responsibility is good for businesses and good for the communities they serve.  We can help our clients develop or deepen their initiatives with programs and partnerships that make sense. And when our designers create packaging for our clients, they take environmental sustainability into account, proving that a product can look great while leaving a minimal footprint.

Cookie Cart Bakes Bright Futures

We’re always inspired by people and organizations doing good things in the world and we love sharing those stories. We’re very proud to work with Cookie Cart, the North Minneapolis bakery that employs and empowers urban teens (who bake amazing cookies in a variety of flavors). Did you know that Cookie Cart delivers its delicious treats anywhere in the Twin Cities Metro and ships to points around the world? They also host cookie selling events at locations all around town. And they invite people to volunteer in the bakery alongside the teens – it’s a fun outing for families, friends, and coworkers! For details or to order cookies, visit cookiecart.org
