Over the years, the iilo team has earned a reputation for being impact-focused, reliable, and great to work with. You can count on us to:

  • Ensure our values align, so we can stand behind our collaboration
  • Take the time to listen and learn
  • Be collaborative and show respect for your subject matter expertise
  • Work quickly and dive deep into your project
  • Explain the “why” behind our recommendations
  • Deliver high-quality work on time and on budget 
  • Communicate clearly and be available when you need us
  • Pay attention to the details
  • Celebrate the wins and make it right when we make mistakes
  • Find solutions to reduce your project’s ecological footprint

The iilo team has been delivering communication design solutions to non-profits, social enterprises, educational institutions, marketing/communications departments, and governments for 20+ years.

  • We work exclusively with mission-driven organizations and businesses — we understand what makes you great at what you do, and the challenges you face
  • As a Certified B Corp, our company is founded on values and doing business ethically and transparently
  • Our focus on efficiency, process, and simplicity means we can focus most of our efforts on solving your communication design challenges
  • We’re a virtual-forever agency (not just during the pandemic) with low overhead, which means lower costs and savings we can pass onto you
  • We believe in working full energy, not necessarily full time, empowering women in business, and creating a flexible space for underrepresented creative professionals to do impactful work and have work/life balance 

We follow our standard communication design process for every client project, and refine the details to meet your custom needs. As process nerds, we’ve spent years refining our process to make it as easy and efficient as possible. 

  • Kick-off meeting: we set expectations, outline process, and align our teams
  • Discovery and strategy: we dive deep into your creative challenge, get to know your organization, industry, target audiences, and goals, and exit this phase with clarity and consensus
  • Concept design: we explore ideas and creative concepts, and refine them with your feedback, to agree on a design direction
  • Design production: we produce complete drafts of your project deliverables, conduct 2-3 review and feedback rounds with you, and do ongoing quality assurance before delivering final files
  • Wrap-up & celebrate: we reflect on (and celebrate!) what worked well and identify lessons learned and best practices with you, so we can improve our processes and your client experience
  • Share impact: we share what we accomplished together through case studies, blog posts, and the iilo newsletter (with your permission, of course) to promote the great work you’re doing
