Getty Images Salutes Discovery Impact: Creating Change

November 18, 2011 | By Getty Images | Community, Creative

We’re always thrilled to hear how nonprofits are using our imagery to craft impactful communications, so it’s no wonder we’re feeling very inspired ourselves over the Discovery Impact: Creating Change program.

Each year, Discovery Communications selects a handful of nonprofit organizations to join its staff in a 12-hour creative marathon, during which Discovery employees lend their talents in marketing, communications, creative design services, social media and video production. The result? Compelling communications that enable these organizations to tell their stories and achieve their promotional goals.

This year, 24 organizations benefitted from the program – including Shepherd’s Table, a nonprofit in Silver Spring, Maryland, that has been providing basic services to people in need since 1983.

Using imagery from Thinkstock, part of the Getty Images family of sites, the Discovery team was able to take images such as this:

and create a brochure that will help Shepherd’s Table inspire others to join them in changing the lives of the people they serve:

As we celebrate the organizations and individuals who use visual communications to create positive change in the world, it is an honor to consider Discovery Communications among our heroes. Our hats are off to the teams that lent their talents (and their time) to make this event possible.
