In February 2016, I published the Branding Toolkit for Changemakers:  a guide to branding your social enterprise. The toolkit contains: 14 case studies, 20 tools and exercises, 6 guest essays on brand building, 42 illustrations, 132 pages and 25.000 words. It features three case studies from Africa, eight from Europe and three from North-America. The toolkit was made possible by the support of 271 backers on Kickstarter. Get your digital or paper copy now!
