In Good Company / Mate Act Now

We hope everyone is well and keeping safe.

Before all this kicked off we were working on the identity for a new venture by Laura Wellington. The organisation called 'In Good Company', its aim to make the city of Leeds a more vibrant place.

Then, for us all the world changed.

In times of crisis as graphic designers, illustrators and image-makers what can we do? So many of our friends and family are working literally on the frontline, risking all to help people. So, what can we do? The 'Posters for the People' project is a result of wanting to do something, to show our love and support. If the resulting work produced for the ‘Posters for the People’ make one person smile, feel reassured or just that people are thinking about them, cheering them on then thats’s job done. To all frontline workers you are all heroes — Team Studio.Build

Instead of waiting for things to return to normal Laura had an idea. The project 'Posters for the People' was born! Its aim is simple, To celebrate and show support for all the frontline workers in the UK and the world that we really appreciate their hard work and commitment under incredible stress. Its tagline 'Art For Frontline Workers'.

The first incarnation was a billboard piece by Morag Myerscough 'Our Superheroes We Love You' that was put up in Leeds' Headingley.

This then spurred Laura to get a bunch of designers and illustrators to design a poster to show support and respect to all frontline workers. These posters were put up in Leeds city centre and surrounding areas. The first series featured work by Craig Black, Luke Tonge, Morag Myerscough, Risotto Studio, Anthony Burrill, Rebecca Strickson & Us.

Our poster titled 'Conversations Make Rainbows' is a collaboration with copy writer Nick Asbury. Who wrote the following:

Right then!
You take care!
Good talking.
Be in touch!
I love you,
Very much.

It's a conversation a lot of us will be having with family and friends. It's these conversations that keep us short they make rainbows.

All the prints can now be bought as banners with all the proceeds going to charities. Please head over to the banner shop here and buy a copy! All the banners cost only £19.80 (inc shipping) and is a great way to show your support and help make some money for charity!
