Our team is passionate about working with organizations to grow innovation — especially education models. We’re proud to share our collaborative design to rebrand Detroit Future Schools as People in Education, or PIE. Having worked on the initial branding of Detroit Future Schools, a digital media arts program committed to humanizing schooling in Detroit, The Work Department was excited to be engaged in the program’s evolution.

Through a participatory process with stakeholders we designed impactful visuals that furthered the program’s mission and vision through a more unique and unified voice. The program rebranded as People in Education and launched a fresh website and identity using the simple and accessible brand assets that we developed together.
