Fortuna got the brief after I rewrote it the second time. Almost nailed it from the start. Just needed a couple tweeks and it was spot on.
Fortuna was very polite and even though my requests were only minor, it was no problem. Can't thank him enough.
It was frustrating to watch other designers copy what he was doing and present them as their ideas, that's not designing.
Thanks again to Fortuna and to 99 designs for making this possible 😃
Great work as always Radmila! Every time this is great design work. Will be back!
Eeshu is an excellent designer, partner and creative visionary. I really enjoyed working with Eeshu and hope to work on many more projects with him. I highly recommend him as a designer!
Great design, prompt communications. Great experience, thank you.
Magnus is a great artist, we love his ideas and attitude. He created our logo and we came back to him for our booklet design. It took us some time to make it to the final version of the booklet, but we're more than happy with the result. The communication with Magnus is very easy, he responds promptly and is really very helpful. Whatever we wanted to adjust or change, he was always willing to do what we wanted and we didn't have to wait for long. From our experience he's open-minded and once he knows what you want exactly, he'll make it happen, he even adds something extra which is so lovely to see in our busy world.

The European Endowment for Democracy -
EED - (https://www.democracyendowment.eu/) is an independent, grant-making organisation, established by the European Union (EU) and EU member states to foster democracy in the European Neighbourhood (Eastern Partnership countries, and Middle East and North Africa). EED was set up to address a gap in EU democracy support. Its goal is to provide flexible, fast and un-bureaucratic support, complementing other EU and donor support programmes. Since its inception in 2013, EED has provided over 400 grants and evolved into a vibrant, innovative and well-respected member of the democracy support community.
EED’s grantees are dedicated human rights and political activists, pro-democratic movements, independent media outlets and journalists. Many take great personal risks to push democratic values. Initiatives cover themes including anti-corruption, civic activism and participation, elections, good governance and rule of law, media, human rights activism and monitoring, youth, gender equality.
While the EED is already a well-established organisation, it lacks a coherent brand identity and consistent narrative, supported by clear visual and communication guidelines.
With an imminent office move, combined with transitioning into a new phase in our organisational development, we would now like to shape a new brand identity. This should communicate a fresh and consistent approach externally, and across our initiatives and networks of stakeholders. This will go beyond design; it should also clearly position EED and communicate a clear message that represents the organisation’s uniqueness and core values.

The values and convictions shared by EED and all our partners and activists is that strong democracies are the best way of safeguarding human rights and ensuring sustained prosperity.
EED’s support is based on a principle of fostering – not imposing – democracy and facilitating initiatives of local actors. A basic tenet is that only change originating from within can lead to a sustainable and inclusive democratic transition.
The key messages are anchored in the EED core mission and values. These filter from the overarching slogan “Supporting the Unsupported”.
a) EED fosters – not exports – democracy and freedom
b) EED adds value – complements and fills gaps in existing democracy support programmes
c) EED is unique – fast, flexible and takes risks
