London based charity, Made in Europe, have appointed Dezign Fanatics to help develop their brand and core fundraising campaign. “MADE”, is much more than a regular charity. It’s main aim is to encourage young muslims to put their faith into practice and provides resource for campaigning, educating and volunteering, to address global issues such food crisis, infant deaths, climate change etc. The project involves branding philosophy & identity guidelines, and a concept which aims to change behaviour, attract volunteers and request donations. A restricted budget adds to the challenge of the project, but one the Fanatics could not resist due to the mirroring belief that charity on its own, for which the muslim community is extremely generous with, is not enough on its own.

Dezign Fanatics has rebranded Scotland’s leading translation and interpreting company – Global Language Services. The project has included offline and online delivery. www.globalglasgow.com. The process involved raising awareness of branding with the owners George and Frances Runciman and ongoing consultancy regarding how to best integrate activities with the services on offer. One of the major challenges was working with a core team that has it hands full 24/7. In many ways it stressed how important it is to utilise external resources to keep your marketing activities moving.

 

The owners have been brilliant in being ready to listen to good advice and accept changes are needed, even though the business has been incredibly successful to date. Even a business providing translation and interpreting needs help in articulating its message – through the universal language of design.

Dezign Fanatics is proud to announce the arrival of its latest project arrival – C.U.B. (Comfortable Upright Birth). C.U.B. is the brainchild of Birth Sparks owner and former midwife Cass McNamara. Birth Sparks was a winner of £30,000 from the Scottish EDGE fund to develop a new, innovative and patented product for women to use during childbirth, and is located in The (Sir Tom) Hunters Foundation’s facility at the Olympic Business Park in Dundonald, Ayrshire. As a new product innovation it is set to take the maternity and birth stool market by storm. Having won the project through tender against two other creative agencies, due to our ability to demonstrate a better understanding of the innovation and benefits of the product – we are working closely with Birth Sparks on brand development and communication – whilst the prototype is going through tweaks and manufacturing processes are finalised.

 

Delivery to include Brand identity, strapline, website, packing design, leaflets and info graphics. It’s fair to say we have our hands full.
