Oomph [oo mf] n. 1. A quality that makes something attractive or appealing. 2. Power or energy. 3. Punch; vitality. 

We know from many non-profit executives that their design work is done on a very strict budget, often times in-house or by a volunteer.

When you're tasked with balancing administrative expenses against program costs, it's hard to justify the financial resources needed to make your design sing. All too often then, a non-profit's mission and purpose are substantial, yet their design lacks oomph. This is where we come in. 

You bring the mission, we deliver the oomph. #oomphaward

Here at States of Matter, we believe strategic design has the power to raise an organization's profile. It elevates public perception, leading to an increase in contributions and volunteering. 

Design, branding, and content working together in harmony inspires people to take action.
