Children First – branding and literature design

/ view a selection from our portfolio here »

‘Children First’ is a national guidance for the protection and welfare of children. Penhouse were commissioned to design an identity for Children First, where the brief was to ensure it sat easily with both the Department of Children and Youth Affairs logo and the Tusla, Child and Family Agency logo, the primary promoters.

Once the identity was in place, we designed the Children First National Guidance document with DCYA. This document contains information relating to the Children First Act 2015, and outlines statutory obligations for individuals and organisations under the Act. It also sets out the best practice procedures that should be in place for all organisations providing services to children. The information contained in the document will come into legislation on December 11th, 2017. We further produced a set of guidelines for Tusla, the Child and Family agency, with a different design for this suite, but in keeping with the new Children First identity.

From the outset the team at Penhouse had a clear understanding of the design brief, and worked diligently to produce the materials required, often within very tight deadlines. There was excellent communication from the team at all times and a range of high quality options was provided to the Department. The final products were produced to an extremely high standard, and as a result I would have no hesitation in recommending Penhouse.
