No Hands But Yours from chris mattle on Vimeo.


Habitat for Humanity International welcomed representatives from many of its 1,600 U.S. affiliated organizations to its national conference, Jan. 20–23. The theme of the event was “No Hands but Yours.”  I created many of the visual tools used for the event; my favorite was this little video which kicked off the conference. I wrote it leaning heavily on the conference theme. It’s simple but I’m pretty happy with it. Thanks to Habitat Photo Editor Bob Jacob for talking the beautifully detailed hands photos!

The main conference sessions, Jan. 21–23, included speakers Ron Terwilliger, chairman of Trammell Crow Residential; Renee Lewis Glover, CEO of the Atlanta Housing Authority; Jonathan T.M. Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International;  and Stacy Allison, author of books such as “Beyond the Limits: A Woman’s Triumph on Everest.”
