With the recent troubles we have seen on our television screens and read about in the newspapers, many of us have wondered what we can do to help those affected by the troubles. Well, Zoe of Zoe and Drew decided to help set up a charity raffle.
She has managed to rally the help and support of other talented designers and makers based in the UK and together they have donated time, and goodies to be used in a raffle to help raise money for other independent businesses who have suffered as a result of the riots. All the proceeds will be donated to Retail Trust a charity working to support the 3 million people working in the retail sector in the UK. You can read more about Zoe’s plan on her blog.
The other day Zoe contacted me and asked me to help design an official logo for Riot Raffle. I was delighted to help out, even if it meant burning a few midnight oils to get it turned around quickly. With the support of the lovely team at bwebsites who are designing and developing the website (also giving their time free of charge) the project is moving along really quickly and I am sure it will be a great success once the launch happens.
Below is the final chosen design. I wanted something that was strong visually, but had soft curves. The black will go with any palette and the accent colour just adds a little interest. I am really pleased with it and the feedback so far has all been very positive.
Please go and visit the official website and purchase a raffle ticket. There are some amazing prizes to be had.
