A dreamy hand-drawn starry ocean scene featuring the seven co-op members from Story 2 Designs with golden design-inspired tools floating in the water such as an ink pen tip, a cursor, and a paragraph symbol. The ocean has a medium current with gentle to lively waves churning about the illustration. Atop the waves of the ocean is the Story 2 logo in the shape of a sparsely-leafed, but strong, tree with a staircase on the left side and the top of the staircase ascending into puffy clouds. The Story 2 co-op members are nestled in various parts of the tree, climbing the staircase, peacefully resting, looking out, and two of the co-op members are gleefully riding a boat that dips through the loop of the tree's base into the water. The parallax stars in the backdrop resemble firefly-like dots and gently sway in the back of the illustration.

How to Write Kickass CTAs for Your Organization

Read Time: 18 min. We all know the anatomy of a good CTA: It must be short (retaining our audience’s attention), it must be emotive (we’re all humans and we’re emotionally driven creatures!), and it must use action words, e.g. Donate, Support, Subscribe, etc.. The most successful ones include visual design and illustration work that complement the copywriting.

Websites Are Like Houses: They Don’t Live Forever! 😱

Read Time: 5 min. If you’ve ever wondered why you can’t just make a website and be on your merry way, this is the place for you. I used to think that if I made a website I could just ask someone (really anyone with design or tech skills) to make it and then my website...

Here to build & be real humans.

We exist to center people, communities, and organizations that relentlessly pursue life, love, and justice. Story 2 Designs is a response to what we call story one. The story one narrative is what many of us work against every single day. It manifests as fossil fuel energies and colonialism. It’s false and forced dichotomies, rigid ideologies, and single solutions that are not healthy or sustainable. So what comes after story one? We think you already have the answer. You, and many others who are already doing the work, embodying your values, all while…
