Big Lunch Extras is a 3-year initiative run by the Eden Project and supported by the Big Lottery Fund and Halifax plc. The identity connects to ideas of places and conversations, with a cheeky nod to the Eden Project’s famous biomes. Working with illustrator Parko Polo, Believe In developed a flexible toolkit of elements that we could use to communicate many different themes and activities.
In addition to printed and digital communications, the identity also works across promotional merchandise and wayfinding/display materials, helping to ensure that delegates are both inspired and entertained by the experience.
Sixty six million people stammer worldwide. Little is known about why, and despite there being no cure, The McGuire Programme is providing effective therapeutic coaching to help sufferers manage their difficulties. Founded in 1994, the organisation is run entirely by people who are conquering their own stutters and who work towards transforming lives. Their visual language however, lacked in the confidence and consistency the organisation needed to grow their brand and reputation.
As part of an internal initiative, Purpose approached The McGuire Programme with a view to creating an identity that truly reflected the strengths of the organisation, and equip them with the tools they would need to create a strong, recognisable brand. Purpose developed a core thought, ‘Beyond Stuttering’, which helped to inform the new confident visual and verbal language. Simple graphic speech bubbles are readily adapted as a communication device and campaigning banner, which helps lay the foundation for a growing image bank. The two-colour approach has created a level of consistency throughout all their marketing communications, whilst being a very cost-effective solution – a top priority for a non-profit organisation. The new identity is transforming The McGuire Programme into a stronger, more prominent brand, helping them really stand out from their competitors and ultimately get their voice heard.
