National Children's Hour
Campaign mark animation

A campaign mark animation for Neon’s campaign project for Action for Children’s ‘National Children’s Hour‘.

Leading UK charity Action for Children were to launch a new campaign aimed raising awareness of the huge value to children of having a least an hour a day of play and interaction with their parents or guardians. They needed an identity to promote the campaign, and to really strike a chord with parents and guardians about the importance of this hour to children. Our approach was to create a typographic mark, incorporating a clock face that indicated the one hour a day – with the hands subtly suggesting a grown-up with a small child, peeking out from behind.

We hope you enjoyed this animation, click here to see the full extent of the project.

(Our other projects for Action for Children include: I’m An Activist for Action Children, It Starts with hello, An hour for Good, Swap n’ Shop to name but a few.)[/collapse_panel]

Kind words…

“Action for Children appointed Neon to create a powerful creative idea and identity for National Children’s Hour. Neon delivered this in spades, presenting us with a campaign where early signs indicate that the public will be active and enthusiastic participants. Working with Neon, you can expect strategic thinking combined with beautifully crafted creativity to bring a vision to life. As Head of Brand and Marketing, I not only appreciate the single-mindedness of their approach and attention to detail, but also the easy working relationship and genuine partnership they bring to the table.”
