L’Arche Tova Cafe, a social enterprise that started in 2012, has been providing Transcona residents with more than just good food. The cafe’s mission is to do more than provide wholesome food and great service – it also aims to provide meaningful employment for people with a disability, encourage the general public to interact with and get to know those with disabilities, demonstrate social responsibility, and ultimately, build a more compassionate society.
That’s a tall order, but one they’ve been quite successful at for the last three years. As they’ve been reviewing their successes and thinking about the future, it occurred to L’Arche Tova Cafe that their logo could perhaps use a refresh, so Diane Truderung, L’Arche Winnipeg’s Director of Fund Development and Communications, reached out to Spark.
Elise Epp, new to Winnipeg in 2015, had gotten in touch with us mid-summer to volunteer her graphic design skills and get to know the city through a volunteer’s eyes. The right opportunity hadn’t arisen yet, but when Diane said “new logo”, Elise came to mind.
At the end of November, I brought Elise and Diane together to discuss the match opportunity, and sure enough, they clicked. Now we’re two months into the match, and it’s exciting to see the new logo take shape. Keep an eye out here, and L’Arche Tova’s Facebook page, for the results of Elise’s hard work!
