DYLOTT is pleased to announce an ongoing partnership between BLACK TAXI, an initiative of TAXI and Developing Young Leaders of Tomorrow, Today (DYLOTT). TAXI which is a design and advertising agency based out of Toronto. Their latest initiative, BLACK TAXI led by a diverse creative team committed to finding, hiring, and retaining Black talent, an effort to lead and advocate for change in the advertising industry.
The partnership was created to support the organization with a major rebrand to reflect its continued growth and changes to program and service delivery. The rebranding initiative includes a new logo and matching brand assets. Led by the team at BLACK TAXI and currently in its final stages, the rebranding took place over months of consultation with DYLOTT team members and advisors.

DYLOTT encourages any organizations with an interest in branding work or Black youth interested in internships to reach out to the BLACK TAXI team and inquire about how they may be able to help you.
“I cannot thank the BLACK TAXI team enough for patiently and graciously working with us to put together this rebrand,” said Candies Kotchapaw Executive Director DYLOTT. “They took the time to hear the heart of our story and reflected our drive to showcase Black excellence in all the materials that they presented to us,”
“In addition, I would like to thank Andrew Jackson, our website developer, for his hard work and continued effort in building out a new website that reflects the growth we have experienced over the last 3 years and captures the direction we are headed in.”
“As we continue to expand and grow our programs and services to meet and reflect the needs of the communities we serve, this rebrand will help us to communicate effectively who we are and what we offer to a wider audience”. Ms. Kotchapaw said.
