Featured on The BBC’s One Show was another winning campaign from Splinter’s resident NHS expert Kevin McCann. NHS account manager Kev’s ‘Line up’ design encourages people to return their borrowed medical equipment: wheelchairs, crutches, zimmer frames etc. to the NHS and save money.
Besides printed and digital media the ‘Line up’ design has featured in local media including The One show and been seen locally on the side of vans that are collecting people’s medical equipment. The Amnesty campaign has proven to be incredibly effective for clients Liverpool Community Health as they have had a 40% increase in people returning borrowed equipment in the last couple of months.
…in Congleton, Behaviour and Welfare Lead; Liz Griffen, and her students for inviting Lesley Seal, Senior Communications Officer from Cheshire East Council and myself to discuss our adolescent neglect campaign.
The Council and school are both creating awareness campaigns to educate people about child and adolescent neglect. Splinter is proud to have won the commission and be involved with this important project. There is little discussed or understood about exactly what child neglect is and what as a society we should do about it. So I was grateful to speak to Liz, a safeguarding and welfare specialist and her group of students, who gave up their lunchtimes to discuss the subject and give me their valuable insight on visuals, messaging and communication channels.
I was made to feel very welcome and am impressed by the students’ design savvy, creative input and clear understanding of a complex and subjective issue. Having already provided such crucial insight, we have kindly been invited for a return match to tell us what they think of our creative…fingers crossed!
I look forward to my return visit at the end of the month.
…And look out for the campaign in March.
Splinter have been working on the Liverpool Community Health (LCH) PS staff magazine for over 3 years now.
The magazine contains numerous articles for LCH NHS staff to read on all that is happening within LCH and it’s related projects. The bi-monthly publication is both printed and produced as a Pageturn document.
We were approached by Liverpool Community Health (LCH) to concept and design their 2011 AGM conference materials based on the brief, William Shakespeare’s ‘The Seven Ages of Man’.
LCH’s Head of Communications, Engagement and Marketing, James Brown, asked the simple question of ‘If Shakespeare was alive today, what would he be writing on?’
Armed with this brief, Print Production Manager Kev McCann went about the task of creating 15 ‘app’ icons which showed LCH’s take on Shakespeare’s ‘The Seven Ages of Man’ plus other icons which encompass their core visions and values. The inside pages were designed around a social network theme and hey presto the Annual Report and Accounts 2011 was created!
Invitations, summary documents, feedback cards and slide presentations were also produced for the event which Kev was proud to attend, and if you want to know what happened, check out his blog.

Mersey Care NHS Trust provides specialist mental health and learning disability and substance misuse services for the people of Liverpool, Sefton and Kirkby. They commissioned Splinter to design and produce 5 video / motion graphic sequences to be displayed in waiting rooms throughout the region.
The sequences dealt with subjects such as the illustrating the Patient Journey, Jargon Busting and Data Security. They combine motion graphics, practitioner / service user interviews and raw video footage.
We have been working closely with Liverpool Primary Care Trust with their ‘Liverpool’s Challenge’ campaign for over a year now, producing information packs, newsletters, e-newsletters, signage and advertising on their behalf.

For the 2009 Pssst! campaign we produced an approach focusing on the dangers females face when drunk. This approach equates the lack of control women have over their situation when drunk, to that of the helplessness of a dummy. This approach is being communicated by the use of a real, physical dummy, which finds herself in a range of compromising situations.
