We were approached by the Whizz Kidz charity who asked us if we would support them by designing some promotional elements for a campaign they were running to raise awareness of the difficulties disabled children face as regards to their independence. This involved designing materials to go into an information pack that will be taken around schools to get able-bodied children and their families both educated in the plight of disabled children and to raise financial aid.
As part of the pack, an idea was proposed to us to illustrate a cartoon ‘Bee’ mascot character in a wheelchair with the name ‘Buzz’. We created the character which provoked a very positive response from the customer, however we thought that the name ‘Buzz’ was a little too masculine, so renamed the character ‘Whizzy Bee’ which we felt was much more applicable and promoted the overall ethos of Whizz Kidz in a more positive manner, not being gender-specific.
We then designed a range of marketing materials featuring Whizzy Bee which are listed below.
