The Situation: The Oshkosh Area Community Foundation

The very long relationship between 44º North and the OACF began in 1997, which is three CEO/Presidents and six Marketing Coordinators ago! In fact, our team has such a longstanding relationship with them, we feel like part of their staff. It all began when a new CEO was named in 1997 and brought big plans to ambitiously grow the Foundation. Marketing moved to the forefront of the needs for the CEO, and from there we were off to the races!

How did 44º North help?

Our team’s services began with Envoy’s brand identity development. Envoy Logistics serves their customers by finding cost effective, on time and quality shipping services. They utilize unique technology to do this, therefore their brand needed to look cutting edge and powerful. In addition to the brand, we developed simple sales collateral and designed and developed their website. Our public relations efforts have included announcing their launch and communicating as they have continued to grow with through photography and press releases.  Envoy Logistics considers 44º North to be their marketing department. 


Over our long history, our team has developed and collaborated with the Foundation team on many design and strategic initiatives for the organization. From newsletters, brochures, and annual reports to donor guides, invitations and banner stands, our team has produced much of what donors, grant recipients, and our communities see from the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation. In addition, our team has helped guide their marketing team in decision making, strategic marketing, and messaging. It has been our privilege to call them a client.

What our client says:

“44º North has been providing excellent service to our organization for over 20 years. We
have used them for a variety of projects and they always deliver top-quality results. The
owner and her employees go above and beyond to make sure every project
meets/exceeds our expectations. I highly recommend them for all your marketing and
advertising needs!”
