Sacramento zoo

Dynamic mark concept by team member, Dawn Palmer.

The Sacramento Zoo is a nonprofit organization which seeks to inspire appreciation, respect, and a connection with wildlife and nature through education, recreation and conservation. As part of team project for a course at Sacramento State, the Sacramento Zoo served as a case study in a rebranding concept. The goal was to change the conversation about the organization by focusing on its core values, its connection to the community, and its efforts in animal conservancy.

The team members whom worked on this project include Celeste Espinoza, Dawn Palmer, and myself. This project was completed during the Spring 2017 semester of the Sacramento State Graphic Design Program.

As the main storefront of the organization, had to feel more like an extension of the Sacramento Zoo where visitors and supporting members could connect and stay connected in a variety of ways. The website is focused around interactivity and engagement in order to connect more with the community and educate about conservation.


Most importantly it features quick and easy ways for visitors and supporters to give, learn, and be a part of a Sacramento Zoo community. An exciting feature to the homepage is a live information panel that is unobtrusive and offers up to date information about current conditions at the park, park hours, and quick links to tickets and the park map. 




Turtles are able to breathe through their butts.

Unfortunately, that's a skill Turby the turtle hasn't mastered yet.

Sea otters hold hands when they sleep so they don't drift apart. 

It's love on a whole otter level.
