Dina Rice, Founder & Executive Director of TAHPROOTS, reacting to her project during Drinks + Demos


2018 NYC Make-a-Thon Case Study


The Organization

TAHPROOTS is helping local youth after school by bringing in photography and videography equipment to their locations, and allowing them to learn how to utilize this art form to express themselves. TAHPROOTS also provides free community art workshops for all ages in an effort to show that art creates, connects and communicates.

The Project

TAHPROOTS is a small nonprofit founded in 2014 that is now growing even more than ever before. The organization was looking to relaunch its image including a brand refresh and guidelines that would help drive design decisions moving forward.

The Team

Their team was made up of four strategic makers including Bethany Robertson, Jackie Shao, Saxon Campbell and Spencer Hill.
