Let’s Talk About:

Working With Purpose

Natalie Reich

By Natalie Reich, Brand Strategist

If the last year has taught us anything, it’s that we owe it to each other to show — and share — our humanity. Our motivation to work towards the greater good neither is nor should be something that only exists outside our work lives.

Since June 2020, Viget has provided thousands of hours of pro bono services to organizations committed to social justice and combatting structural racism. These projects have generated compassionate, productive partnerships both for Viget and our pro bono clients, exposing all of us to new ideas and ways of working together with purpose and intention.

Our most recently completed project was a brand strategy engagement with North Carolina-based nonprofit Prison Books Collective. This was a unique opportunity to help define the identity of an organization that occupies the space between the worlds inside and outside prison walls.
