The marketing team at CVG has been working hard with Albuquerque-based Investment Partner, EDI (Environmental Dynamics, Inc.), to update their brand identity and website. The comprehensive rebrand includes a new name—Equiterra Regenerative Design, graphic identity, and website created by Charrette Venture Group.

After 22 years as EDI, we felt it was important to refocus our energy on the values that originally inspired us. A shared passion for sustainable design brought our group together initially and we’re excited to see how the new brand helps us grow as a thought leaders, reaching more people, and having a greater, lasting impact towards positive change for our environment and communities. - Kent Beierle, principal and cofounder at Equiterra.

Equiterra, a combination of “equilibrium” and “terra,” means “balanced earth” and represents the outcome this innovative architecture firm is working to achieve through regenerative design. 

During the rebranding process, we collaboratively developed the idea of visually representing the lens through which Equiterra makes its decisions. Instead of selecting a basic color palette, we chose a variety of environmental elements to layer throughout the firm’s graphic identity.

To have a positive impact through our projects and our business practices, we need to constantly be using the lens of regenerative design - Delcie Dobrovolny, principal at Equiterra.

CVG’s Creative Director, Lisa Saldivar, said, "The Equiterra rebrand was an exploration of how to translate big, innovative ideas into a simple and clean visual language. It was an incredible experience to collaborate with the Equiterra team and we couldn't be more excited with the final designs we built together!"
