Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation is a registered charity in the United Kingdom which aims to provide help and hope to people affected by lung cancer. Founded in Liverpool in 1990, it is the only UK charity to focus solely on lung cancer care. The charity has a dual focus - saving lives and supporting people affected by lung cancer. It funds lung cancer research, supports the prevention of lung cancer by encouraging and helping people to avoid or quit smoking, and raises general awareness of lung cancer and its symptoms. It also supports lung cancer patients by running support groups, providing information to the NHS, and other measures. We have seen firsthand the wonderful work that they do throughout the UK and we are sure one day they will make the breakthrough of beating lung cancer.
Roy Castle Foundation were looking for a design and merchandise partner to provide a one solution scenario. The first project brief was to design and provide the associated branded clothing, merchandise and digital paper print to launch a brand new fundraising event initiative called Liver Birds Midnight Walk, which was a ladies only 9K night walk.
After winning the opportunity to become an official supplier and provide the solution for this project we started the design process of creating a standout event brand that would be both relevant and fun to both the participants and general public. We linked in the Liver Bird character and also highlighted the iconic start and finishing location. We carefully designed the Liver Bird brand making sure it was transferable so it could be replicated on all other event material and media that was required including finishers t-shirts, quality medals, sponsorship forms and posters. Client feedback was that the event was a huge success attracting over a 1000 participants. Innovative design and event merchandise that were relevant was integral to helping create a hugely successful event. The event also benefited from some amazing PR photo’s as everyone was encouraged to dress up in there standout t-shirts generating hundreds of tweets and front page news in the local press.
