As part of the ongoing development of the BRAVE project, the team of staff will be looking to create an all new brand, a new website, and a new logo.
The new logo is an important step in ensuring that the BRAVE project will be recognised across Neath Port Talbot and Powys. It will serve as an identity of the project moving forward, and will be used across all platforms in the coming months and years, including our new website, our support materials, toolkits, social media, posters, leaflets, and other literature.
Children and young people are at the centre of the BRAVE project, and will remain the only priority throughout the 5 years that the project will be running. Because of this, and our commitment to a service-user-led approach, we have decided to open up the logo designing process to children and young people who have previously received help and support from Calan DVS’s original Brave project, as well as from UNICEF.
There will be a group design session held as part of a UNICEF event at the new Children’s Rights Unit on Alfred Street in Neath on October 31st. In this session, children and young people from a wide variety of different backgrounds will be given a blank template and free reign over any ideas they have for a BRAVE logo. Some of team members will be on hand to offer any help or suggestions, while making sure everyone is enjoying tapping in to their creativity.
Together, the team will then chose the specially designed logo that they think best represents the BRAVE project and all that it does, and it will then be adapted to use across all BRAVE platforms in the future.
We are very excited that the BRAVE project can begin in such a positive and inclusive way, and are looking forward to seeing each amazing design the children come up with.
