A few weeks ago I had an exciting meeting with Andrew Wolffe and Rebecca Moyes of Wolffe design. They felt that our Ripple Retreat needed its own identity. Ian and I know the importance of branding if not quite sure how it all works!
We were shown a few ideas and knew right away which was the right one for us. It was also their (Andrew and Rebecca) favourite too.
Next stage was for them to refine their idea further. It was only three weeks till official opening day – could we get the logo ready enough to use at all?
Hey, it’s us – course we could! The team at Wolffe worked their socks off. We had been gifted over 100 pieces of white hotel quality bedlinen by Sarah and Malcolm Duffin – because it is such great quality and pure white it was ideal to have our logo embroidered onto it.
We got in touch with Sam Lauder of Logo Embroidery Scotland- one of two fabulous businesses we work with. Sam said yes he could do this even in the crazy timescale – Ian and I took the bedding to him and a lovely supporter collected it once done, delivered it to Shonagh and she brought it to Retreat day before we opened.
It is a beautiful logo – very us.
A rippling heart. The central heart represents the child or young person with cancer, the middle heart represents their family and the outer heart represents it’s good 2 give.
We are planning a sign at the top of our drive at Ripple Retreat and the logo will feature there along with the words
Relax and Reflect
That’s what we all hope the families can do when staying at the Retreat – relax and reflect. And make memories.
We are super grateful to Wolffe design for their incredible support and looking forward to learning more from them about branding!
