Evocative Donor Recognition

Tired of bricks and plaques to commemorate donors? So are we. Experience Design Consultant ZEBRADOG approaches higher education donor recognition with unique feature elements that invite people to connect with a place and linger longer.

People want to be associated with a story and the brand of a university. We excel in the pre-design and pre-construction phases by celebrating a donor story that attracts like-minded alumni and invites robust philanthropic giving.

How can we close the gap between the ask and the gift for your next donor campaign?
“ZD takes us right to the edge every time… They help us think not what’s possible today but what we want to be tomorrow.”

Jaw-Dropping Experience Design

ZEBRADOG’s narrative for a donor exhibit at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Human Ecology was so strong and passionate it sold out in two years—five years ahead of schedule. The Hundred Women exhibit honors 100 women who gave $100,000 memorialized in a beautiful, two-story glass sculpture. We recently created a second giving opportunity called Ember Hall, where donors continue to be inspired by the department’s work, faculty and dean. We anticipate Ember Hall to be sold out well ahead of schedule, giving assured success to the school’s future.
