Imbue Creative Spotlights Equality Charter School!

Equality and Imbue Creative have been partners for two years. We are grateful for all of their work for us and are honored that they highlighted our partnership, and our Spring Reception, on their website!

Imbue Creative recently designed a save the date announcement & invitation for Equality Charter School (ECS). The design was used as a postcard, an email, and served other digital purposes in promoting their annual Spring Reception fundraising event. ECS asked Imbue to also elevate the design of their Sponsorship Form, which supplemented the Save the Date. Our team gladly worked to create a unified series of pieces to promote such a worthy event... Read More Here

Equality Charter School Partnership with Stone Barns

Image result for stone barns center for food and agriculture images
If you were with Equality last year, then you may be aware that our 9th grade scholars worked on a big performance task that included a trip to Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture where they discussed food culture, sustainable farming, and the use of GMOs. Because the performance task was such a success, we are going to continue the partnership with Stone Barns and do it again this year!
