Nicole Campbell invites Eric Ressler, Founder & Creative Director of Cosmic, onto the Nonprofit Build Up® Podcast to talk branding, storytelling, and the best way to communicate your nonprofit’s mission. Nonprofits often think that once they have their story ‘together’, everything else will fall into place.

In this episode, Eric shares how you can bring an intentional story into your organization's brand image as a compliment to your overall vision.

“When you focus your story around the change you’re trying to create, why it’s important and what we need to get involved, that story is relevant to everybody.”
