Warrington Time Bank Logo 2012

 

Graphic designers at Priestley College have been asked to create a logo for a group that brings people together in Warrington. Warrington Time Bank has asked the students to design a logo that represents how it connects people and allows them to share their skills with one another.

Philip Blocksidge, Development Officer at Warrington Time Bank, asked Priestley College students to take part after hearing about the talent they had to offer. “We could have gone down the route of throwing money at it and getting a design agency involved,” he said.

“We thought this was a better way of doing it and more in keeping with what we are about which is getting the best out of local people.”

Liverpool Biennial is among the most successful art commissioning agencies in the UK, best known for presenting the UK's largest festival of contemporary visual art. Established in 1998, 2010 saw the 6th festival take place between 18th September and 28th November. Since its inception, the International exhibition has commissioned well over 100 new works, many for the streets and public spaces of Liverpool, by established contemporary artists from around the world.

Develop a new Awareness Campaign and Visual Identity
The purpose of this is to reach and potentially engage with a wider audience to what the Liverpool Biennial has to offer; specifically, 16-19 old people across the North West region of the country. Following a period of research, the assignment is to produce a new visual identity (Corporate Identity) and visuals for a new awareness campaign. You will at all times have the opportunity to receive feedback from Head of Marketing and Communications, Antony Pickthall and James Graham from agency, Thoughtful. Outcome should take the form of New or Social Media rather than being traditional print based.

CharityPrintShop.com 2010

 

CharityPrintShop.com was launched in January 2010 to provide printing and promotional products to companies with 50% of the overall profits to be donated to charity. A company could select the charity to support.

As at August 2010, 24 charities have registered to receive donations via the CharityPrintShop.com website, majority of which are based in the NorthWest. However, as we have seen in Section 3 there are many business benefits that can be achieved but charities need a range of marketing materials that will help them to gain corporate support for their cause or alternatively, the CharityPrintShop.com can run a campaign directly to businesses to get them on board.
the students were set the task of creating the following:
A range of marketing materials that charities can use to encourage businesses to support their cause via • CharityPrintShop.com
A range of marketing materials that CharityPrintShop.com can use and send to businesses to encourage them • to use CharityPrintShop.com as their preferred supplier whilst encouraging them to give to charity.
