Final-year students recently worked on a live industry brief to create a brand to raise awareness for new charity, Survivor of Torture.

Survivor of Torture helps people who have experienced trauma by reintroducing them into society, by providing access to services necessary to move forward with their lives in the UK. The charity offer assistance to assylum seekers for a wide range of services, from English lessons, counselling and GP provision to creative therapy.

The project was coordinated by London based creative digital and branding agency, TEMPLO, who work on projects that focus around design for good. TEMPLO set the live brief for students, to give them invaluable real-life industry experience working on a live brief that incorporates ethical and design for social change aspects.

BA (Hons) Graphic Design students worked across all stages of the project, from initial thought and design process through to pitching to the charity, giving them experience of a project from planning stage through to pitching to a client, under the direction of TEMPLO’s Creative Director, Pali Palavathanan.

TEMPLO explain “The logo is designed around the words ‘Survivor’ and ‘Torture’, and that they should never be near each other. The line that separates these words is a hand-drawn portrayal of each survivors journey.
