Márla Communications at IDI Mind Over Matter 2018
A day to draw awareness to mental health supported by local design agencies
A national day of design in aid of mental health, Mind Over Matter, took place on 10th October 2018 in locations across Ireland. The initiative, in association with Aware, enabled business owners to donate a fee in return for 1 hour of design consultation.
With the wealth of design knowledge on offer throughout the country, this fee for a good cause was a win win. Members of the Márla Design team Lee Grace (Creative Director) and Paul Whelan (Graphic Designer) were at hand to share their design skills and expertise to their donating companies.
Márla Communications Bookings
Lee’s first booking was with John Halley of John Fogarty RE/MAX Waterford. Within just an hour they had discussed brand tactics, SEO implementation basics and an overall web review. Lee’s other booking was with Barry Kerrigan of Kerrigans Craft Butchers who kindly donated but could not attend on the day. Paul’s booking was with James O’Brien of Incrowd Wedding Music. James and Paul fleshed out branding ideas and discussed web visuals and layout.
Both Paul and I really enjoyed being part of this initiative again this year; coming from a design background, we understand how critically important your company image is. We were delighted to have the opportunity to help businesses on the day, while contributing to much needed support for mental health programmes.As businesses, it is vital that we all are conscious of our own social responsibility, and be aware of the potential support we can give to the wider community, through the provision of what we do best. We look forward to taking part in this very worthwhile initiative again next year!
