Celebration, excitement, freedom and liberation were the heady themes given to illustrator Brian Grimwood by Carter Wong & Partners, for a project for national charity Whizzkids. The charity, which provides mobility aids for young children, appointed Carter Wong to design a logo, invitation and ticket for its fifth birthday ball in June. The consultancy has created a design concept around a character chosen from a shortlist of four drawings by Grimwood. `The character is a lively, hopeful and fun individual, designed to represent mobility and the feeling inside that less able children are capable of achieving things now that they could never do before,’ says a consultancy spokeswoman. Carter Wong has also asked other illustrators to donate illustrations for the charity’s prize draw at the ball. Participants include Quentin Blake and Axel Scheffler.
