Context I am a designer concerned with print based solutions in the fields of branding and publishing design created primarily for the fashion and culture sectors, using a mix of both type and image. I also have a strong interest in copywriting and the importance of communicating successfully through both language and design. Brief or Tasks You must project manage and create the branding and promotional material for a charitable project that will involve selling a range of christmas post cards that are based on either Christmas films or Christmas songs. The cards will be type or illustration based, and created by third years studying Graphic Design at Leeds College of Art. The proceeds from the sale of the cards, distributed both online and in events in Leeds, will be going to Simon on the Streets, a local homeless charity.

Preparation/Research suggestions Gather research on successful projects, and see how they have communicated their brand and ideas.
