At a time when death is so much in the headlines, communicating ideas about death and bereavement to children is tricky.
Paula Rainey Crofts was a pioneer in individual and eco-friendly approaches to funerals, running Heaven on Earth Bespoke Funeral Services and winning a Lifetime Achievement Award’ for her pioneering work with death and dying in 2013. Now she has used her experience, writing this story of love and loss for children - how to treat death as a natural event, to celebrate memories and to use plain words when talking about it. Paula writes straight from the heart and combines humour, pathos and feeling into an enlightening story.

In early 2020 three trusted community organisations came together in the spirit of collaboration and ambition for the community they serve. Easton Community Centre, Felix Road Adventure Playground and Up Our Street became one organisation: Eastside Community Trust. We were delighted to supply them with a new identity.
With a strapline of ‘A place of possibility’ the brand had to appeal to users of an adventure playground, a community centre and a diverse range of co-designed community development, communications and research projects in response to issues raised by residents of Easton and Lawrence Hill, Bristol.
Often, working for multiple stakeholders can be a challenge – this project was a joy to work on!

Pre-Covid, Southmead Hospital was already gearing up for increased infection prevention with new infographics. Now, with infection prevention the key to stopping the spread of Covid-19, this signage is more important than ever.
Following advice from the Quality Care Commission, North Bristol NHS Trust wanted more rigorous staff notices for their theatres. The signage reminds staff what they need to wear in different areas. But it’s not just about the appropriate clothing; regulations refer to a range of other aspects of appearance from jewellery, hair, to cleanliness of hands and shoes, to length of fingernails.
It’s essential that staff are dressed for the part to reduce infection risk, they need a detailed message that will be fast to absorb and impactful in this busy part of the hospital. Theatre signage has to communicate a lot of detailed information. Added to this design challenge, the colour palette is restricted, each area uses a single colour to denote the zone and a change in requirements.
Feedback tells us that everyone seems very happy with the posters. And, excitingly, Adrian got to wear scrubs! Swipe left or click the + for more images…
Think we’ve all learnt a lot a lately about how to get our hands really clean.
Our poster is a super-simple reminder of each step needed for effective hand-washing. We can supply ‘robust’ wipeable versions of this sign for use by businesses and organisations in our shop – but we think these could be very useful in the home at the moment!
