The brief

Over 1,000 runners have taken part in the Great Birmingham Run for Cure Leukaemia over the last couple years. This is a huge source of fund raising for the Charity and we were delighted to assist in the creation of a visual campaign to recruit runners in 2016.

The Solution

After we bounced around ideas for ad copy and headlines, we set off designing visuals for the chosen concept ‘Don’t just do it. Run for a reason’ – an idea sparked from watching incredibly inspirational videos of individuals who have been moved to run for the charity.

We felt that a typographic and bold symbolic creative would fit this concept and allow the campaign line to be the call to action on its own. The creative concept is based on blood cells in the shape of running gear such as trainers, bottles and headphones with strong branding. The designs were recreated for posters, bill boards, social media and online ads.

We were delighted to hear that CL had over 200 runners sign up in 2016 and hope they smash it in 2017!

Serve different purposes

The success of the ‘Donate Your Name’ campaign was so impactful on the charity that we’ve worked with the team to create a templated website that can be rolled out quickly for new initiatives. The Carl Ikeme campaign after he was sadly diagnosed with leukaemia went live and reached 1,000 names within 3 days!

Creative, nimble, good value and friendly. We have built two websites from scratch with Sixth Story and both look excellent and have great functionality. We also worked closely with them to create eye-catching and exciting imagery to recruit runners for the Great Birmingham Run which proved very effective. I can highly recommend this company for all your digital design needs.
