Outdoor Skills School is a group of outdoor enthusiasts and skills instructors. OSS wants to educate and enable the community in Cincinnati, Ohio to engage in outdoor pursuits.
OSS instructors—who are certified in various skill-sets such as those certified by American Mountain Guide Association—guide students in essential skillsets; map & compass, knot-tying, team building, kayak/canoe, GPS, climbing (anchor building, self rescue, technique, lead), and food preparation on the trail. The courses are designed to be approachable yet thoroughly informative and are often conducted in local parks.
I helped Jeremiah Moore, founder of OSS, develop the concept of his idea for a skills school, and a small kit of parts/identity system—logo variations, colors, and typestyles—for him to immediately implement on a manual used to teach the class, and also on his Squarespace site.
