Brandhouse WTS has created Comic Relief’s Red Nose Mini Bank for its Red Nose fundraising day on 16 March, following work it undertook for the charity last year. The reusable money box hopes to encourage people to donate their change and keep on saving. It is based on this year’s curly red nose to give it strong in-store standout, says Comic Relief design manager Helen Trevarthen. ‘Red Nose Day is about motivating people to give money while keeping the fun element,’ says Brandhouse WTS design director Pip Dale. ‘Sales of the last Comic Relief money box were so successful last year, we used the idea again,’ she says.
Offthetopofmyhead’s founder and creative director says there’s no such thing as brand design and much of what the design industry says about brand is incomprehensible, pretentious and just plain daft.
The new store — conceived by design and architectural practice Gensler — has a gaming lounge, multi-purpose Community Theatre and a McLaren sports car on the ground floor.
