Applied cultural anthropology
Sara Little Turnbull Foundation
The mission of the Sara Little Turnbull Foundation is to further the advancement of underrepresented youth in design education and women in professional communities of design practice and leadership. The Foundation also promotes public awareness of design at the intersection of business, culture, and education.
Sara Little Turnbull, a trail blazing designer and design consultant, operated at the nexus of design, culture, commerce, and education during the second half of the 20th Century. She described her practice as “applied cultural anthropology.”
Sara Little Turnbull created a Foundation Trust as a vehicle to continue her work and to reflect her love of design education at the intersection of business and culture. The Trust was formally created in 2015 and officially launched in 2018 with a mission to serve Sara Little Turnbull’s legacy and vision.
Working with the Sara Little Turnbull Foundation lead director, Donovan/Green designed and developed the brand identity and digital presence. Donovan/Green continues to provide support for the foundation.
