The Ollie Foundation

Saving young lives

The OLLIE Foundation is an amazing charity dedicated to raising awareness of and preventing suicide among young people. We were proud to be asked to help improve the charity’s brand image to enable it to better communicate its aims and objectives. Given the subject, we had to work sensitively whilst articulating a powerful message. Our answer was to create a stand out identity with a strong sense of individuality; one that helps tell a human story and reflects OLLIE’s brand attributes – awareness, empathy, emotion, passion and achievement. To date it has been applied to stationery, banners, leaflets, training booklets, fundraising packs, local press advertising, merchandise and a website.

Happy client

“We never thought we would start a charity and we certainly had no idea how important brand identity would be to get our message heard. Being introduced to Nick was a godsend, simply because his insights and knowledge made it easier for us to understand how we needed to visually engage with our target audience. The creativity of Nick and the team at Blackbird has allowed OLLIE to gather momentum that none of us thought possible. We are truly grateful.”
