The Humane Society of the United States is a non-profit organization dedicated to ending animal cruelty and protecting animals with compassionate action.
Each year, Think Baseline creates a unique event brand for the HSUS’s largest fundraising gala, as well as a coordinated brand for the After Party event. The event branding materials need to have a broad and significant appeal to a wide audience—from donors and sponsors to gala attendees and celebrities—while also satisfying both the Philanthropy and Events departments of HSUS. These events raise millions of dollars every year for the rescue, medical care, and adoption placement of thousands of animals that are victims of cruelty, neglect or natural disasters.
Think Baseline knows the ins and outs of event branding, and worked closely with HSUS to ensure a brand design that would have mass appeal and high impact. We also took the entire printing and mailing process out of HSUS’s hands, giving them A-Z branding service that resulted in beautiful design, eye-catching branding and a very pleased audience.

“Think Baseline understands the specific needs of our animal welfare nonprofit and is able to create cohesive, branded event materials that appeal to our audience and meet our photo and design policies. They work with us to come up with concepts and then create materials for all aspects of the events, from initial sponsor packets to invitations, from printed signage to web assets. We appreciate that they take the reins on printing and mailing, handling quality control and managing timelines with their vendor. Think Baseline has created stunning event materials that impress and inspire our gala attendees.”
