Advancing the National Debate on U.S. Energy Security

As part of our ongoing partnership with energy policy and advocacy nonprofit, Securing America's Future Energy, MSDS helped develop the defining event around the issue—a first-of-its-kind, 2-day National Energy Security Summit in Washington D.C. The resulting branding and design system created clarity around the critical issues of American oil dependence, helped SAFE effectively lead the debate, and provided media and attendees with continuously updated materials leading up to, and throughout, the summit.

Client's
Take

“Often, non-profits rely on multiple, uncoordinated design partners to build their brand. The results are usually as scattered as the teams who create them. It’s much more effective to establish a long-term relationship with one agency that provides strategic branding and top-notch design consistently through the years. That’s exactly what MSDS has done for us.”

– Robbie Diamond, President and CEO
