The change behind Science For Change
A new phase begins at BHH member Science For Change. They have launched a new website and a new visual identity. At SFC they leave nothing to chance, and in this article you can find why they have this new logo, identity and website.
Let’s start with the new logo. The overlapping of the shapes speaks of the collaboration between a multitude of different people, as it happens in their projects. These shapes are not perfect, just like the encounters between the elements of the logo: they are not afraid of imperfection, it is what makes them who they are it gives them the value they have in society.
Inclusion is one of their 6 values and therefore also drives their design decisions. For example, the reason they always use the logo in a solid colour is because they want it to always be accessible to everyone, such as people with colour blindness.
The logo also shows full and empty spaces, which speaks of open science and creative thinking, and also gives a sense of depth, of how they go deep into the issues they work on, and how they engage citizens at the grassroots.
For the development of the new SFC identity, they did a first co-creation exercise of different important aspects of the new brand. One of the co-created elements of their new identity is the tag line: Collective Matters.
Starting from the concepts of their values, they came up with some very interesting ideas, all of them focused on the mission that gave birth to this company. The final tag line “Collective Matters” shows SFC's primary intention to collect and unify issues and solutions to have a positive impact on society.
Science For Change addresses social, environmental and health challenges through citizen science, participatory strategies and co-creation. SFC is a knowledge-based social enterprise that promotes collaborative research, evidence-informed public policy and quality science communication.
The new website keeps the essence of the previous one, where you can consult their projects, find out more about them and also a lot of interesting resources and publications, which they want to share openly.
But it incorporates a new section… their services. Because they want to put the results of their projects into practice!
The knowledge acquired and validated in their research projects is transformed into services applicable to different knowledge fields. They offer services of co-creation, citizen and collaborative science to contribute to the resolution of challenges, promoting quality science communication, and connection between science and politics, to maximize a positive impact on society. They focus on 6 main areas of action:
- Co-creation strategies
- Citizen science
- Science communication
- Science for policy
- Art and science experiences
- Consultancy, mentoring and tailor-made trainings
