Mencap, the charity which campaigns for people with learning difficulties, has unveiled its 50th anniversary stamp, created by its expanding in-house design team.
The charity is to recruit a new designer next month to join Kathy Grace, who joined from CDT Design last summer.
“The appointment is a result of the expansion of the charity in our 50th anniversary year,” says a spokesman for Mencap. “We decided to go in-house partly due to cost, but also as it’s probably easier for an in-house designer to understand the charity’s ethos than an external consultancy.”
The charity is also keen to promote wider use of its corporate identity, created three years ago by The Partners, through its 470 local organisations.
“We continue to work closely with The Partners, and also with Newell and Sorrell, which is working on our jubilee identity to be launched in August. Both [consultancies] have been brilliant,” the spokesman adds.
