Semaphore helps launch new charity

November 28, 2008

Marlborough-based advertising, branding and design agency Semaphore has helped officially launch a new young people’s charity, Catch22, at a high-profile royal event.
The agency designed and printed promotional material for Catch22’s formal launch at St James’s Palace. Catch22 was created from the merger of charities Crime Concern and Rainer.
Catch22 asked Semaphore to produce posters for the event attended by HRH the Duke of Edinburgh and HRH the Princess Royal. The Duke of Edinburgh was Patron of Rainer and the Princess Royal the Patron of Crime Concern and Her Royal Highness has now become the Patron of Catch 22.
Semaphore MD Penny Bowen, who has worked on design and branding with Crime Concern for more than 10 years, said the agency is delighted to be supporting Catch22, which is committed to “cracking the catch 22 crisis which leaves thousands of young people out of school out of work, without a stable home or caught up in crime”.
Catch22 estimates that around half a million young people are trapped in these no-win situations. It works with 34,000 young people in more than 100 towns and cities across the country.
Ms Bowen said: “Crime Concern has always been close to my heart, so of course it’s been very exciting producing the wide range of material that a new organisation like Catch22 needs. We’ve  worked very hard with the client to ensure everything was  ready in time for the guests to get the full flavour of Catch22’s identity at the launch.”
