Marks & Spencer Shwopping poster campaign

The M&S Shwop campaign began as an internal CSR initiative that later progressed to become their biggest non-product campaign rolled out to M&S customers across the country in stores and online. The basic idea is that staff and customers donate their unwanted clothes, which are then sold in Oxfam shops, shipped to Africa for resale in local markets, or recycled to support the environment.

Encouraging behaviour change

How do you get every employer in the country to do things differently? It’s a massive exercise in both communications and behaviour change. Here at The Team we use techniques developed by P.J. Fogg to help us, which focuses on three design factors that are important to persuade behaviour change:

Continuing our work with Canonical, the curators of rapidly growing free and open-source operating system Ubuntu, we were asked to look at their ‘first boot’ animation video – a short sequence that plays when the computer is started up for the first time that should communicate Ubuntu’s core values – Reliable, Collaborative, Freedom, Precise.

Royal Holloway University Rebrand : Discovering the beauty within

Nestled in the home counties, you may come across Royal Holloway. No, not the London suburb, or the infamous prison. Royal Holloway and Bedford New College, to give its full title, is a world-class university just outside Egham in Surrey. Opened in 1886 by self-made medicines millionaire philanthropist Thomas Holloway, the college was originally established as a learning institution for women at the suggestion of Holloway’s wife, Jane. The main Founder’s Building is impressive from the outset with its flamboyant pillars, turrets and towers inspired by Château Chambourd in the Loire valley.

Internal communications and the big energy challenge

I find writing about energy efficiency really hard. A lot of people just don’t care about it. They’re going to die and really, the solution isn’t in the lifetime of their generation. Why should they care about saving energy or saving their company’s energy costs? It’s something they just want to stick at the back of the mind. Don’t believe me? Take a look at London at night. Every office light is on.

The Civil Service Benevolent Fund’s new name and brand identity developed by The Team has brought about dramatic improvements in engagement with civil servants looking for help. The Team won the work following a competitive pitch in February and was asked to review the identity of the charity – which last year celebrated its 126th anniversary – and to look at how to better reflect its purpose and future direction.

Blinging Brilliant! No.3 in the DBA Effectiveness League Table

It’s a fact. Our clients want creative thinking. It’s another fact that they want to recognise a return on their investment through a professionally executed design strategy. And to some it’s a little known fact that The Team are ranked as No.3 in the Design Business Association Effectiveness Awards League Table. We call these awards our “Silver Bullets”. Others call them our bling! And as the only award scheme that uses commercial data as a key judging criteria, they are both prestigious and authoritative.
