Marketing materials to recruit new volunteers
In order to unify all volunteer activities for the Royal Free Charity across three sites we created a visual graphic which could identify all materials. The new graphic works hand in hand with a strong new photographic style being applied for all Royal Free Charity activities. This bold new look allows the volunteers to feel proud of the work they do at the Charity.
The posters feature striking portraits of current volunteers on bright colour backgrounds matching the current brand campaign.
Recruitment leaflet follows the same style and creates a engaging and honest call to action.
The Volunteer newsletter follows a newspaper style we have developed for all newsletters across the charity and incorporates the bold graphics across the header. Rotating colours allow sequential newsletters to appear different and thereby allow readers to pick up the latest copy.
The Volunteer handbook establishes what is expected and what is promised to volunteers and ensures that the standards by which the Royal Free Charity wish to be represented are adhered to. The creation of this handbook also makes volunteers feel comfortable that the Charity takes its responsibility to its volunteers seriously.
Continuing the Royal Free Charity's new strategy to provide services to patients which will have an immediate effect to improve spirits. We branded the radio to fit within the Royal Free Charity brand structure and to allow the radio to have it's own brand language. The symbols created allow us to demonstrate the variety of content.
Marketing materials are essential to help the charity raise funds. We have designed the fundraising packs, the legacy leaflet, friends leaflet and lottery leaflet which form a suite of literature and support materials. In addition we have created a few campaigns including two consecutive Christmas campaigns to support patients and staff over Christmas.
We redesigned the flagging newsletter to be more magazine like in proportions and styling with striking front covers. Now having produced many issues it has evolved further with more pages and versions of the magazine for each hospital, Royal Free, Chase Farm Hospital and Barnet Hospital. The design has succeeded in raising more funds for various equipment and services the charity supplies to patients, families and staff.
We have designed and produced the annual report and impact statement for a number of years and the 5-year strategy report. These important documents act to represent the charity and its purpose but also allow them to gain support by being transparent in their results.
We supported the Royal Free Charity in its new venture to roll out charity shops in North London with interior design, signage, window dressing and marketing for donations and volunteers. It's been a full 360Â° project and the opening has been very successful. We continue to work with the charity as it rolls out more shops in order to keep the brand consistent whilst adapting to different physical sites and audience needs.
We worked with the Charity to help develop a clear positioning strapline which would rally the staff, volunteers and fundraisers behind a single remit which could apply to all equally. The line is 'Making today feel better'.
The Royal Free was founded in 1828 and relied on charitable donations for day to day running as well as the pioneering research it is known for today. The Royal Free Charity needed to reach a digital audience through a solid and responsive website to continue its fundraising work. We designed, planned and built the website for them to be able to take donations, explain their purpose, promote their activities and grow their network.
