Lifebanc Headquarters

Lifebanc is Ohio’s largest nonprofit organ and tissue recovery organization and one of seven in the United States. The vision for their new building put forward by their CEO, Gordon Bowen, was to tell Lifebanc’s story and inspire their guests; therefore, strengthening donation efforts and honoring those who have given the gift of life. He also wanted a place for donor families, recipients and community guests to feel peace, comfort and inspiration.

Our firm created a welcoming and content-rich exhibit area in the modest and open main lobby. The two water features provide a calm, sensory experience for visitors.

We also created a new brand identity for Lifebanc. The use of color throughout the space supports the brand and creates a nurturing and uplifting environment.
