Branding / Creative

Brief

RHL wanted to stand apart from the typical, mundane design concepts that many housing associations adopted at the time. They required a distinctive and contemporary brand identity that would work across all materials and express RHLs core values of being friendly and welcoming.

Solution

We created the ‘Welcome home’ concept, which combined a vibrant, friendly, illustrative style with a contemporary typeface. Illustrations such as fluffy slippers, family picture frames and pet cats were used to convey feelings of comfort, security and a sense of belonging to reflect that even if you are renting a house or flat it should still feel like home. When launched in 2011, the illustrative style was unusual for the social housing sector and became massively popular with service users. This lead to winning several awards and inspiring many other businesses in the sector.
