Our specialist services - two people laughing

Charities and not-for-profit

We understand how important it is to keep to your budget while still making a big impact.

We share your passion for your cause and fight alongside you to help you win your battles and make your stories heard.

Third-sector communications require smart thinking to satisfy stakeholders’ and thought leaders’ advocacy and policy aims. They also need to work hard to generate income through charity fundraising initiatives, legacy marketing and events. We guide organisations through communication challenges, designing creative solutions to engage, inspire and change behaviour. Charity campaigns need to grab attention and speak authentically, and we champion and elevate that in our approach. The outcome is always to prompt action. Find out how we can help you achieve your goals.

Healthcare and NHS

Healthcare is the lifeline of our communities.

We help hospitals, healthcare providers and care systems communicate clearly with patients. By finding ways of reaching particular groups in society, we help you guide patients and customers through what can seem a confusing network of services to reach the right care.

NHS brands and communications are often complex. They require design solutions that provide clarity, reassurance and trust. Let us help you unravel those complexities. We are experienced in navigating through the NHS England identity guidelines. The NHS is one of the most recognised and loved brands in the world, and our aim is to protect and champion this always. We create successful health campaigns, regional healthcare branding and service signposting. Find out how we can help you change lives for the better.

Wellbeing and activity

Wellbeing means different things to different people, but at its heart are the experiences of health, happiness and prosperity.

Inspiring words demand creativity. Projects in this sector require impactful brands and campaigns to inspire and engage, and we know how to achieve this.

Promoting changes in wellbeing and activity requires clear signposting, jargon-free education and incentives. The topics can be sensitive, problematic or even divisive, so building trust and providing support are key to communication. Whatever the subject, we relish responding to a creative challenge. Find out how we can help you transform your message.

Why choose a design agency specialising in charities?

As a charity, your challenges will be numerous – but they’ll be similar whatever your cause. That’s why choosing a design agency with experience in working with charities is important. With us as your partner, you can benefit from the experience we’ve gained from our wide charity portfolio and make use of our informed insight and thinking. You’ll also need to consider accessibility and follow guidance on ethical and sustainable giving when providing information or raising money. We are experienced in working with guidelines from organisations such as the RNIB and the Fundraising Regulator. With your fundraising campaign, are you looking to acquire new supporters or retain existing champions? Do you want to promote an event or ask people to sign up to raise money? Are you looking to use your annual report to gain new funding or celebrate your successes over the year? Whatever your campaign or initiative, our experience in charity creative will help you achieve your goals.

Do you work with specific sectors in charity design?

The third sector is broad, but it has social change and communities at its heart. To foster that change and embrace diverse communities, communication is important. We’ve worked for charities specialising in mental health, disability, human rights, housing, care homes, young people, cancer, grant-makers, food poverty, animal protection, reducing inactivity, activity and sport, inclusion and wellbeing. We’ve also worked on more unique causes, such as protecting London’s playing fields and sharing information about alternative therapies.
