We headed out to sunny Carlsbad, California to spend a week with the NAMM team, learning the ins and outs of their organization, their content, and the people they serve. The result of the work was a number of lightweight tools to help inspire, evaluate, and focus our design ideas.

During our brand research we realized that Herbie Hancock's blue note jazz albums from the mid 20th century seemed to really fit the words we were using to describe the NAMM Foundation’s brand. We created a style tile that applied this visual langauge to example components and messaging for the NAMM Foundation website.

We're proud of the work we did with the NAMM Foundation. However, radically rethinking an existing website in a short timeframe requires more than just the effort and expertise of our Lullabot team. It requires a partnership. We had the privilege of working with an amazing team from the NAMM Foundation, one that was fully engaged in the process with us from the outset.
