For some time I have been volunteering for Wise Thoughts which creates dynamic local, national and international arts initiatives in addition is delivering services that help address social justice issues for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex (LGBTQI+) and Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities.
I didn’t want to work for free for some corporation while still learning so this is a cause with meaning.
For this post I posting a bi-fold brochure for this charity and placards which will be taken to the pride itself.
I think in real life it looks lot better.
With the placards is important to keep the message clear and easy to read.
Today I am posting this new website banner for A Pioneering LGBTQI+ & BAME Arts Charity based in Haringey, London I am currently volunteering for.
Every Wednesday a sexual health stall on ground floor Wood Green Library (excluding public holidays), from 2:00 – 4:00 pm

These meetings offer a safe, secure, and confidential place to receive support and advice. This service is FREE, but we do require that people get in touch with us before attending in order to receive event details.
We also offer advice, support around sexual health needs (including
