Turn Passion Into Action
We collaborated with non-profit Protect Our Winters to provide sustainability communications and create a marketing strategy for its climate champions — those who seek to inspire and forge a carbon-neutral society, turning their passion into action. This work culminated in a launch at ISPO 2020 in Munich, including all presentation materials about how to get involved.
Hamish came to the rescue when we were looking for design help for the launch of Protect Our Winters Europe at ISPO. And what a pleasure it was working with him. He took a slightly disjointed brief to design the visuals for a stand, print assets and a website and, with strategic intelligence and vision, created a coherent and striking user experience that exceeded our expectations and got us off to a great start from which we haven’t looked back. We especially appreciated his unfailingly positive and solutions-focused attitude and his strategic creativity and expertise that he combines with an inspiring passion for driving positive change.
The Penny Black stamp of 1840 was the first postage stamp with a uniform value, allowing for a massive communication uptake throughout the UK, and paving the way for reform on many levels. A stamp of change.
If decision makers create value for their organisation by picking the best available options, then these choices can be reformed, or redesigned, to be better suited for each project.
At Penny Black, established 2009, we know that everything about an organisation is designed. From marketing strategies and financial modelling, to supply chain logistics and human resources structures — everything must follow the process of ideation, design, realisation.
And while it might seem outside its standard province, all strategies have design characteristics. So if we are creating policies and plans by design, then we ought to be really good at designing them.
