CREATIVITY RESONATES AND MAKES YOU MEMORABLE
Values, history, culture are not the same for every organization.
That's why Presidential's discovery process helps us determine who you are and how best to reflect this. We don't believe in cookie-cutter.
Traditional doesn't mean boring. It means you have a rich legacy to draw on for creative guidance. Donors need to associate their recognition with your values, history, and culture.
And if you want to think outside the box, for truly stunning design, our creative team will astonish you.
The architectural elements of historical buildings are imbued with the qualities of those organizations. Using these to highlight donor recognition can reinforce a rich heritage and inspire future giving.
Royal St George’s College
Every student has trod on the stage here to receive their diplomas. We’ve repurposed wood from this both in donor recognition plaques and on a presentation mantle on the fireplace.
Creating displays with unified underlying thought can unite disparate elements and provide a cohesive user experience.
Royal St George’s College
The Shield & The Sword of St George became front & center of the displays, including the main donor wall, area plaques, and wayfinding to the new Ketchum Hall.

In recognition of the volume of Chinese patrons, we designed recognition walls, plaques & gifts in Mandarin, and reflecting Buddhist principles.

Sometimes you need to attract attention. Thinking outside the box can result in a showpiece display which highlights the best of your organizational heritage.

How better to get inside the mind of a chemist, than with atomic models on copper leaf and four-storey banners with chemical formulae.

This exterior donor wall replicates the ivy embracing this historical site. Truly stunning, and one of the most visited locations on campus.
These are a few very different projects of which we are especially proud.

Great, enjoyable use of outdoor space with plaques that are tactile, with wording replicated in Braille.
