Community logo development with the NSPCC

We’re proud to be partnering with the NSPCC on the Together for Childhood campaign being piloted in Ernesettle, Plymouth. It’s about reducing the incidence of child sex abuse in the community. It’s about awareness-raising to push for prevention of abuse, not protection after the fact.

The brief for this project is to create a logo and key messaging, but also to ensure that work is owned by the community it is designed for. We went to their first consultation session armed with colour, energy and craft supplies.

 

 

Powering Change: Plymouth Energy Community

Plymouth Energy Community (PEC) is a local Community Benefit Society seeking to address rising energy bills and carbon emissions in Plymouth. PEC offer a range of services, including home visits and one to one and community support to those struggling with energy issues or fuel poverty.

PEC is internationally acclaimed and is one of the most successful community energy organisations in the UK. Each year, PEC (and its sister organisation, PEC Renewables) hosts its Annual General Meeting for members. PEC now partners with other organisations to host a larger event and in 2018 will enjoy the company of Lord John Bird.

We wanted to mirror their joined-up thinking in the artwork we produced for their promotional poster and flyer.

Billy Ruffian’s Brewing Company

Billy Ruffian’s Brewing Company is a social enterprise independent brewery based in Plymouth, England.
It has not yet launched to market. The brewery premises, in Devonport in Plymouth, have been leased by the Real Ideas Organisation (RIO) for three years with the intention of launching a local, authentic craft beer brand. We helped them with the first iteration of their evolving brand and are supporting the project as it grows and develops its social purpose.

PEC PALS logo and eco-friendly wooden badges

PEC Pals is the Plymouth Energy Community (PEC) volunteer programme. It’s a way for people in our community to support work on renewable energy locally by getting more involved. That could be as small as replacing people’s light bulbs to a whole host of big projects.

They asked us to create a bright, simple, readable and friendly logo for the volunteer project that would work with the existing PEC branding. And something energy-related if we could. We love what we created – and how great it looks on the eco-friendly wooden badges we provided for them.

Marketing materials support for Yealm Community Energy

The Yealm Community Energy  community-owned solar farm is at Newton Ferrers. It generates enough clean energy from its 2km of solar panels to power 2,000 homes. The farm is part-owned by a community benefit society so a share of its profits doesn’t go to commercial companies.  Instead, the farm’s sales generate money for local community projects. The solar farm team aims to offer small grants totaling approximately £1.4 million over the life of the project.

We designed and drafted them some leaflets to give out at community events, encouraging people to apply for project funding. It needed to be simple, friendly, and – thanks to a very, very short deadline – it needed to be done fast. We worked with them to evolve their existing materials through facilitated feedback rounds to get exactly what they needed. In words. In pictures. And in style.
