President Lincoln's Cottage

President Lincoln’s Cottage (PLC) is a historic site and museum located in Washington, DC where Abraham Lincoln worked and lived. PLC offers innovative guided tours, exhibits and programs to inspire visitors with Lincoln's example and take their own path to greatness. Through communications audits and messaging workshops, I designed the "Team Lincoln" identity for its membership program. I also updated the organization's logo, graphics, and website that convey it as a "home for brave ideas." 

Collaborators: Nancy Belmont, strategist and Chief Inspiration Officer at Vessence.
