In July of 2020, following the murder of George Floyd, Landscape announced a pro-bono initiative to support Black-owned businesses. DeWitt Lacy, a local attorney, reached out to our team with the goal of creating a free resource to educate Americans about their civil rights.
The collaboration led to the launch of Good & Common, an online platform dedicated to helping people learn more about what their rights are, how to exercise them, and what to do if they are violated. The platform translates Lacy’s extensive legal experience into accessible and actionable information for every American.
From research and strategy to design and development, we worked with Lacy to architect and build a digital tool that could deliver fundamental knowledge to the public, simply. Equal parts urgent and optimistic, the visual language was largely inspired by posters, pamphlets, and buttons found throughout the civil rights movement. While the identity leverages bold color and typography to capture attention, it also serves as a straightforward framework to communicate complex information with clarity. The name, Good & Common, was chosen to reflect the brand’s universal and democratic ambitions.
Good & Common hopes to build a campaign that can reach everyone from policy makers to public schools, local leaders to small businesses, and communities nationwide.
