Homelessness charity Crisis celebrated its 30th anniversary with an event at Shakespeare’s Globe theatre in London last week. The programme and promotional material for the event, called Under the Heavens, was designed by Moore Lowenhoff. The consultancy was given ‘a pretty free rein’, says designer Duncan Moore. He based the design around two premises: using poems and illustrations by homeless people to create a positive effect, and highlighting words linked with homelessness such as ill, hungry and vulnerable, to emphasise the realities of living rough.
The new “simplified” designs have been revealed following audience research that said the BBC’s previous look was “old fashioned”.
Mother Design New York has developed the brand, which launches alongside refurbished interiors from consultancy Yabu Pushelberg.
