Freespirit Design has designed three information leaflets and a folder for north London’s Enfield Council social services department to support its mental health services campaign. The literature and folder, designed for a fee of £10 100, will launch in two weeks and are intended to inform people with mental health problems and their carers of the services available to them. Despite the presence of an in-house design team at the council, Freespirit was approached on the basis of work done last year for the National Fostercare Campaign. Freespirit founder Poppy Jenkins says: ‘The council wants to come across as much friendlier and the designs respond to that. They are a move away from the council’s old look.’
