Free design competition

Studio news 27th April 2020

PHd have been running a competition to offer free design services to a lucky
company, during this whole covid 19 mess, we wanted to help someone, but also
wanted a fun design challenge while we were bored at home working in isolation.

We knew from almost 30 years in business completing over 10,000 jobs that our experience, processes and designs would help people get their ideas off the ground, help them to through this strange time, help them offer up new services, and in general ‘help’.

But we also knew, that things are uncertain financially, so however logical it is to invest in branding and marketing, some people just don’t have the funds at the moment.

So… we spread the word and received 24 worthy entries to our competition.
and it was tough, we got some really great entries.
and we’re sorry a few of you couldn’t win (honestly)
and we sort of cheated, because there were two winners!

The actual winner is (drumroll please)

The Olde Peculiar Pub in Armitage!

This is a great pub, with a tremendous history, and real ambitions, after a period without investment. We hope to get a raft of new things in place to get this pub ready to welcome customers once we’re all allowed to go back to pubs. We’re thinking new branding, signage internal and external, menus and who knows what else! We’re really excited!

The ‘other’ winner, we couldn’t say no to…

It is the charity ‘Gina’.

If you’ve never heard of them, we’re hoping to change that. They give support to rape and sexual abuse victims, and honestly, they do such good work we thought we had to help. The first job is to give them an appropriate identity that they can be proud of, and that will help them build recognition.

Thanks from the PHd team to everyone that entered our competition, sorry we couldn’t do them all, but I think you’ll agree that our winners are ‘worthy’.
