Translating Hope, Designing Love: G180 and MarketPlace
It has long been a tradition of MarketPlace to partner with organizations that give back to the community. One of our favorites is Gateway 180.
Gateway180: Homelessness Reversed, located in downtown St. Louis, is a resource for women and children experiencing the unimaginable burden of homelessness. They provide a safe and nurturing emergency shelter along with services designed to get families into transitional or permanent homes within 30 days.
We were honored when they asked us to design and produce their annual report. Working closely with their employees and volunteers and getting the chance to meet many of the families living there was an uplifting and wonderful experience. Our goal was to translate that experience into the design, and in the end, that’s exactly what we did: the annual report reflects the love and hope that Gateway 180 gives to so many families in our area.
Both the visit and the design work were wonderful experiences, and MarketPlace looks forward to continuing our long and rewarding relationship with Gateway 180, a truly remarkable organization.
