Kitzo is dedicated to working alongside charities, social enterprises and organisations that are seeking to have a positive impact on the world around them.

This is not just about choosing certain people and projects to work with, it’s about adapting the whole design process so that it suits the unique needs of this type of work.

Projects & Clients

“From the first conversation, through the planning, design, writing and project managing of our 10 year booklet, Bryn got what we wanted to do straight away. While full of ideas, he helped us to think carefully about what we wanted to communicate. The process Bryn led us through was as important as the end product.”

Jon Dorset

“Bryn is an awesome listener. He really gets what needs to be communicated, and then comes up with creative ideas that don’t just reflect that, but add extra layers of value and meaning to the message. If you want something inventive, creative and surprising from someone who is passionate about making an impact, he is your man.”

Todd Hannula
SHINE

"We are return customers to Kitzo not only because of the professional service and creativity but because of the continued quality of products produced and Bryn's ability to understand our audience"

Helen Hart

So how can design be used as a medium for social change?

background

We live in an increasingly visual age, where people have learnt to make incredibly quick subconscious decisions about a product or service based upon how they choose to communicate. It’s a powerful tool that can be used to sell products, services, ideas. But it can also be used as a powerful to tool to change the way people see the world.

The Red Ribbon Example:

An Unseen Issue

In the late 80s, AIDS was a growing epidemic. Sufferers were pushed to the margins of societies around the world. There were plenty of organisations trying to talk about it, but no one was listening.

Creative Input

In 1991, a group of artists and designers decided to do something about it. They decided to create a simple symbol to represent solidarity with suffers, and to provide the issue with visual respresentation.

The Red Ribbon Effect

All of a sudden, this marginalised issue was right at the heart of social discourse. The Red Ribbon provided a platform for conversation, a unifying message, and visual presence for the marginalised issue.
