For Smart Commute-NTV, Public Good has been for the last few months working with senior management and staff to develop the new name – pointA – logo and brand identity for this award-winning, non-profit Transportation Management Association committed to reducing traffic congestion, improving air quality and taking action on climate change.
Public Good is honoured to work with non-profit organizations addressing important issues that remain close to our heart. Re-branding can be a challenging, soul-searching exercise, but Smart Commute-NTV was enthusiastic, visionary and open to new ideas.
Lauren Bates, Executive Director: “You have all been wonderful to work with, responsive, and have expertly guided us through this entire process. It means a lot to our organization to make this transition successfully, and your process took a lot of pressure off!”

The Firefly Eco Cabin Project Kickstarter Campaign
Public Good fully supports this non-profit, community-based Kickstarter project at the Ross Creek Community Centre for the Arts, Canning, Nova Scotia.
The Firefly Eco Cabin Project is based on off-grid, sustainable building principles. The proposed cabin will incorporate recycled, environmentally-friendly construction materials and processes (passive solar, straw bale construction and rainwater harvesting) and will house artist residencies and show-case sustainable building construction to young campers, visitors, students and guests at the Centre’s summer camp arts program.
The Kickstarter campaign was successfully funded on July 24, 2018. Thanks to everyone who donated and help get the word out. Follow the construction progress on Instagram!
