Repositioning a charity to lead the sector
Mencap works to improve the lives of people with a learning disability. We were commissioned to reposition and rebrand the organisation.
In their 60th year, Mencap found themselves in an increasingly crowded and competitive marketplace. Fundraising was a challenge, with little awareness of their brand and the services they provide.
Through a series of workshops conducted across the UK, we developed an understanding of how Mencap is perceived both internally and publicly. We used the learnings from these workshops and interviews to develop a new proposition and vision for the brand. A new identity, strapline and brand language were created. This included the creation of a bespoke typeface “Me Sans”, from which Mencap take a percentage of all sales revenue. Our award winning work for Mencap established a leadership positioning, clearly representing their focus on empowering the individual, which is at the very heart of everything they stand for.
