Re-frame Your Now

We are proud to announce a recent collaboration with @lookagainphotography. Over the last two weeks we have been creating ‘Re-frame Your Now ™’ – a FREE Mindful Photography Programme.

The programme uses a combination of mindfulness, photography and nature to help you and your household stay calm and connected and get creative – at home.

Are you anxious, fearful or feeling low about the coronavirus and all the uncertainty that comes with it? Would you like to improve your mental health and build resilience at this difficult time?

This FREE resource is here to help. If you represent an organisation or business and would like to offer this to your staff or service users, please contact Ruth.⠀

Please note:
The programme is endorsed by the University of Gloucestershire, Gloucester Cathedral, Arts and Health South West, and Create Gloucestershire, with support from the Laura Kinsella Foundation and in kind design by Lost & Found Creative.

One Walk Wildlife

Wow, what challenging times we are experiencing. Ever since Prime Minister, Boris Johnson announced lockdown messages on March 23, we were left thinking … What now? What next? How is this going to work?

The new measures asked us to only venture out for necessities and exercise, limiting walks to 1 hour a day (max), keeping a 2m distance from other people.

Venturing out on our first walk post lockdown we experienced a glorious Spring day and this really lifted the spirits. Blossom on the trees, birds flying high in blue skies and butterflies fluttering around. We had a new appreciation for our surroundings and how we were going to treasure our walks and freedom even more so now.

Returning to the studio, we went into “creative mode” – what could we do to help? How could families and communities come together? Following a short brainstorming session, One Walk Wildlife was spawned. A very simple concept and hashtag (#onewalkwildlife) – look, then look again! Appreciate what we have and our surroundings and share pictures with others by using the hashtag. Pictures can be plants, animals or whatever really. Just stuff you spot on your one walk a day. Hopefully this will lead to a beautiful album of positive imagery and when this is all over we can collate the images and do something with them. Perhaps a book, exhibition or set of prints?

Please support this concept and share your One Walk images using the hashtag #onewalkwildlife.

Stay safe. Stay well. Appreciate what you have and thank those who are sacrificing their own health to save others. #ThankYouNHS

Top tip from Mindfulness guru and friend of the studio, Ruth Davey from Look Again:
“If you can’t get out or live in the city, look around your home with a new perspective or take inspiration from books and online; what can you find to share that will life the spirits and inspire? Look, then look again.”

National Young Carers Awareness Day 2020


Today is National Young Carers Awareness Day 2020, a day to acknowledge the challenges faced by young carers and campaign for greater support for them.

Over the last 2 years we have helped Gloucestershire Young Carers raise awareness; reinvigorating their brand and supporting communications to create a strong message. 

Today is a significant day for the charity and we’ve worked with them to produce a range of promotional posters and promotional literature.

This is a great charity doing great work. Let’s all get behind it!

Linger

Linger is a new event taking place at Painswick Rococo Garden.

This Summer enjoy an exhibition of fanciful ‘sitting places’ bringing together creative garden seating made by artists, designer-makers and artisans from around the region.

We’ve really enjoyed branding this event and can’t wait to produce further comms as the project evolves.

Charitable Causes

Lost & Found Creative have proudly contributed to many charitable causes both locally and nationally over the last year. We feel it’s important to take time out of the hustle and bustle of the design world and contribute where we can. This may be financially, through sharing our knowledge and experience or sometimes it is as simple as offering time. There is no methodology in deciding who we support and when we contribute, however causes are often selected due to some form of personal connection to one of the L&F team or supporting team.

 

During 2018-19 we have supported and contributed to the following charities:

The England Walking Football Team – Player Sponsor for the European Nations Cup. https://thewfa.co.uk

The Power of Polo – Contribution of literature design for free for fundraising event. https://www.powerofpolo.org.uk

Gloucestershire Young Carers – reduce rate on services. Implementation of rebrand. Marketing support and guidance. Mentoring of student support team. http://www.glosyoungcarers.org.uk

Power of Polo

The Power of Polo is a new and unique, national charity.  Their mission is to positively impact the lives of anyone facing social, economic or health challenges, utilising the sport of polo.

Their strap line ‘change your line’ refers to how this sport can help you to change the direction in your life and is taken from the most important rule of the game – the line of the ball.

This month Katy Haywood, Marketing Manager approached Lost & Found to create a promotional leaflet for 2019 Summer events. We were happy to help her, pro bono and support this great cause.
