Background

Orangeseed and the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon go way back. Since 2001, the fantastic organization behind this race—now Twin Cities In Motion—has worked with Orangeseed to brand their signature event as well as other year-round races, and design its advertising, merchandise, wearables, promotions, and signage.

Think.

From its beginning as a single event, Twin Cities In Motion has grown substantially and added a host of additional races. The expansion merited an organizational name change and rebrand, as well as the creation of unique visual identities for many of their new year-round races. Orangeseed has worked with Twin Cities In Motion to create their corporate identity as well as shape their events’ brands.

Twin Cities In Motion has partnered with Orangeseed for more than a decade. They have taken us to a new level of brand awareness, and the designs they have created for us are truly beautiful. We love working with everyone at Orangeseed.
