A Greater Nogales 2

Nogales Community Development

To develop the brand strategy for Nogales, WestWordVision analyzed our community’s collective identity, articulating our unique culture, personality and the larger function we provide to the region. They also recognized the unusual structure of our economic development efforts and catalyzed this into “A Greater Nogales” where the missions of individual organizations coalesce and amplify each other to support the whole community. This global approach is truly paying off for us.

The Southwest Center

“WestWordVision led us into a deeper and more effective development process for ‘Hungry for Change,’ a discussion piece we prepared for the first-ever Border Food Summit. Together, we were able to rethink the title and visual tone and to clarify our ultimate messages to our audiences. The report immediately gained national attention on websites, public radio and television. None of this would have been possible without Paula Schaper’s guidance and brilliance as a facilitator.”
