My Local Cooperative

An initiative to teach students about career opportunities within cooperatives. Our role was developing the visual assets to help teachers illustrate the lessons for their students.

Career Profiles

We worked with cooperatives across the United States to gather career profiles in video and static form. Sometimes this meant building a relationship with the marketing team at a cooperative, sometimes it meant phone interviews, and sometimes it meant hopping on a plane and capturing the footage.

The end result was 52 profiles – one for each week of the year – featuring a different career opportunity within an agricultural cooperative.


Interactive Notebook

A workbook to be used with the career profiles and My Local Cooperative lessons that was distributed in hard copy and electronically.


Social Media Posts

Using our own research and information from the My Local Cooperative lessons, I created a series of 52 graphics with information about cooperatives that could be shared via social media.


Co-Op In a Box

The MLC project wanted boxes they could send to teachers who were teaching the My Local Cooperative lessons. The kits needed to include teaching tools and a few treats as thank-you’s to the teachers. With just that description and a budget, we designed and put together all the components for this box that has been sent to more than 450 teachers across the United States.
