Kidney Research UK on Facebook

Adept has recently worked with the charity Kidney Research UK to design their Facebook page encouraging fans to “Like” their page and at the same time, keeping in line with their corporate styling; so far they have seen good results.

Nowadays, Facebook is regarded as one of the biggest and most effective marketing tools and can increase exposure of your charity. Most people will not visit your website daily but most Facebook users will log in to their account on any given day, meaning you can reach those people with a daily status update. If you want to talk to us about designing your Facebook page, please call us on 01603 340 750.

Dogs Trust on JustTextGiving

Our friends at Dogs Trust recently entered the JustTextGiving competition almost raising £1500 over one weekend. Through social media service Facebook, Dogs Trust promoted their campaign ‘FUNdraising Friday’ and after a great response, extended the campaign through the weekend renaming it 'FUNdraising Weekend’. In addition to status updates through Facebook, Dogs Trust drove traffic from Twitter. A month later, they are still receiving positive feedback from the campaign and have now set up more JustTextGiving codes to launch new campaigns. You can watch the Dogs Trust JustTextGiving video entry here and whilst you’re watching, why not donate? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-999sihTs0

Adept feature in design week

We were all pleased to see that Design Week featured a recent branding project by Adept.

We recently created a new brand for TazZa Coffee, a Sutton-based coffee shop. Rather than the typical approach of focusing a coffee shop brand around coffee, the TazZa brand centred on bringing the community together. The new brand needed to form a strong foundation that could be taken forward as a franchise if needed. The brand incorporates a new logo, bold colour palette and a collection of illustrations to achieve its message.

The new logo incorporates a coffee cup, with a speech bubble and mark, combining coffee and community. Artwork was then produced that reflected the community DIY ethos of TazZa Coffee.

Keep up to date with other charities

It never hurts to look around and see what other charities are up to. The charity market is heavily saturated and you need to keep up with the crowd.

Your local library is a good place to see flyers and promotional cards from other charities. It's good to note the type of language they are using and how heavily they are using their website for fundraising and how they utilise social networking websites.

This will help you look into new initiatives for your charity to keep it moving forward.
