SNAP Charity Artwork – A Project Overview

At GT Creative we offer a variety of services encompassing all aspects of design and print, webdesign and digital marketing. We receive various types of requests and briefs from clients on a daily basis, and as much as we like them all, by far the most rewarding work we do is for local charities and non-profit organisations who support the local community.

A great example of this is when we
were approached by local charity, SNAP, to design some creative
artwork for their 20th
Anniversary celebrations. SNAP provides a unique service to Essex
families from its centre in Brentwood, to support those who have
children and young people with special needs and disabilities.

Since
the start of SNAP back in September 1994, their aim has been to
inform, encourage and support the whole family by offering a range of
services for both the parents/carers and the children and young
people. 20 years on, SNAP is still actively helping over 1,500 Essex
families with over 200 new families turning to SNAP each year for
help and support. Working together with them, we wanted to create
artwork that represented the characteristics of the charity and the
personalities of both the kind people that work there, as well as the
families that enjoy use of their facilities.

It
was important to we were able to portray how vital their hard work
has been to the children, families and carers that attend the centre.

We
decided to use a wall frieze to be displayed above the stairwell at
the SNAP Centre, in Warley, Brentwood.

The
artwork was designed to illustrate the history of SNAP, from its
humble beginnings in June 1994 when 8 mums came together to start a
group to offer each other support as they cared for their children.
Our design team used bright colours and strong imagery to create the
look and feel of the group.

“SNAP
offers a friendly, safe and cheerful haven for the children and their
carers, and we wanted to reflect the feel of the place in the artwork
we produced.”

The
frieze was printed to a bespoke design. Sitting flush against the
wall, the transfer gives the appearance of a painting. Its bright colours and contemporary design gives focus to an empty wall, and allows the story of SNAP to be understood in a matter of moments by anyone who comes into their centre.
