C3: Branding the leading consultancy for 501(c)(3)s.

The assignment began with the project name: Newco. Simple enough. Brand an entirely new company. Uh, ok.

Reconnecting Mary’s Pizza Shack to cravings everywhere.

Even 63-year-old Bay Area institutions need to refresh every once in a while. From new logo, brand identity and advertising to a totally revamped website, Rule of 3 has rekindled the “spirit of Mary” for Mary’s Pizza Shack—putting a contemporary “retro fresh” attitude on the menu.

And then there are nonprofits that were impact before impact was cool. For all of these situations, the pursuit of impact action is impacting marketing. At RO3, we’re excited to partner in these efforts. We’ve supported both for-profits and nonprofits in purpose-driven efforts—in the ESG/impact investing space, in the creation of affordable housing, and in healthcare, where one of our new clients is addressing nursing shortages. The purest impact endeavor…

But beyond that, Parametric had grown its business in the wealth management space organically since its founding in the 1990s. The beginning of Parametric and Rule of 3’s relationship was bittersweet: the start of 2020 and the pandemic. Even with this new obstacle ahead, the time had come to define Parametric’s leadership role in a “new” investment…
