Vibrant Content creates modern websites, brand identities, and the design and writing of communications materials that help change-making organizations fulfill their mission and expand their reach.

Jacob BuurmaIn 2011, Jacob Buurma launched Vibrant Content to provide communications services to change-making organizations. From a formative childhood trip to East Berlin (before the wall came down), to graduate studies on Mother Teresa, to documenting the impact of microfinance in South America, Jacob has a life-long passion for global issues and social justice. He believes both non-profit and for-profit organizations have a role to play in improving life for those in the margins of our world.

Prior to launching Vibrant Content, Jacob spent seven years working as a writer, graphic designer and communications strategist for organizations like the HELP research group at the University of British Columbia and Opportunity International Canada. He holds an undergraduate degree at William and Mary in Virginia, a Master’s degree in theology from Regent College (University of British Columbia) and studied web and graphic design at George Brown College in Toronto. As needed, Jacob collaborates with other creative professionals to bring Vibrant Content projects to life.

  • You’d like to delegate a creative project to free your time for other priorities
  • You are looking for a good listener who takes a collaborative approach
  • You value clean design and clear, crisp writing
  • You want to avoid agency prices for web or graphic design
