Government Office for London is often required to pull together huge
amounts of information for its stakeholders and members of the public
in a way that is easy to understand and visually engaging. So when a
report needed compiled relating to sustainable schools throughout
London, Gungho’s experience and expertise in handling this type of
project meant that we were the natural choice.
In order to make the information as accessible as possible, the Gungho
team created a theme for the report and worked carefully to present the
information in manageable chunks.
The client was delighted with the design and production of the ﬁnal
document and with the level of service that they received throughout
the process. Indeed, the publication was so well received that Gungho
was commissioned to produce a subsequent report the following year.
Although we applied a different theme to this document, we were
mindful to ensure that it retained a visual link with the previous report.
Gungho Design has worked with GOL on other projects including
reports on sexual violence and domestic violence. Because of the
delicate nature of the subject matter, the Gungho team needed to be
particularly sensitive regarding the choice of imagery and the overall
look and feel of the piece.
CHYPS Plus is a unique clinic run speciﬁcally for young people –
with the young people themselves directing the service offering.
Representatives from this group sit on a “board”. Gungho developed a
recruitment campaign for new “board” members. The campaign needed
to be compelling and engaging and to encourage action. It needed to
be fun and lively without being wacky or frivolous. The initiative was
hugely successful and the client was delighted. We have subsequently
worked on other initiatives for this client – all aimed at a teenage
NHS Tower Hamlets asked Gungho to create a campaign that would
appeal to people who were already thinking of stopping smoking –
something that would give them the ﬁnal impetus to quit. The campaign
needed to be engaging and immediately accessible. We also needed to
take into consideration the diversity of the residents in Tower Hamlets
to ensure inclusivity and broad appeal.
We used a familiar setting to create immediate impact and interest.
We arranged a location photoshoot and then, to achieve the balance
of diversity and the correct visual positioning, a second “people” shoot
against a blank background took place. We then superimposed the
people into the scene. We gave the featured characters their own
reasons for stopping smoking. Then we turned a question on to the
person looking at the advertisement – “Why will you stop?”
NHS Tower Hamlets liked the concept so much that they asked us to
produce 3 different scenes so that they could run the campaign over a
longer period of time. Collateral included posters, press advertisements,
pharmacy / GP surgery / clinic display screens.
The Health Trainers Programme has been running for almost three years
and is channelled through 5 local community groups - each responsible
for promoting the Programme within its own local area. This had resulted
in a lack of consistency across the overall brand and huge discrepancies
in the quality of materials going out into the community.
Gungho was asked to develop a strategy to create a robust over-arching
brand and to develop a user-friendly way for each community group
to promote the Programme. This involved consultation with key
stakeholders (including Health Trainers, service users and GPs).
The key outcomes of the rebranding initiative: a strong brand identity,
a comprehensive communication toolkit for the community groups and
a set of guidelines and templates to maintain consistency of brand across
Gungho managed and delivered on every aspect of the rebranding
process. Everyone involved in this exercise has praised Gungho for making
the whole process straightforward, efficient, engaging and inclusive.
The feedback: it has rejuvenated the whole Programme and given it
(and those delivering the service) a real sense of professionalism and value.
London Borough of Tower Hamlets
This is a hugely signiﬁcant project with a high proﬁle right across the
borough. Our brief was to take the overall Change4Life branding and to
adapt it to create a unique look and feel for this speciﬁc campaign
for Tower Hamlets.
The initiative was launched at a high proﬁle conference where senior
representatives from the local council and from the primary care trust
introduced the campaign to speciﬁcally invited delegates involved with
healthcare issues within the borough. Materials produced speciﬁcally
for the launch conference included: an eﬂyer invitation (with response
monitoring support), roll banners, pop up stand, delegate folder,
information brochures and “goodie” bag.
On-going publicity for this campaign involves a number of phases and
sub-initiatives, focusing on speciﬁc areas of healthy living and target
particular audiences. Collateral includes: press advertising, posters,
billboards, street furniture, branded give-aways, brochures, leaﬂets,
vinyl banners and giant C4L people!
Gungho Design was asked to produce a smoking cessation campaign
that adhered to the national Smokefree branding guidelines and yet still
allowed for a local focus for NHS Harrow.
Collateral included: posters for pharmacies, posters for public access
locations (eg libraries, council offices), information leaﬂets, an aide
memoire for referrers (eg health professionals), stickers and business
cards. One element of the campaign was a speciﬁc poster campaign
intended to highlight the number of people in Harrow that die each year
of smoking-related disease. This statistic equates to 10 double-decker
bus loads which gave the ﬁgure perspective. Gungho carried out a
publicised photoshoot in front of the Harrow Civic Offices involving
an Arriva double-decker bus, a number of NHS Harrow staff as well as
several members of the public.
When it comes to advertising, things usually need to be turned
around pretty speedily and, of course, press deadlines must be met.
So we need to grasp the clients’ brief as quickly and precisely as
possible. We take great care to gain a thorough understanding of the
clients’ key objectives, the focus of the promotion and the market to
which it is aimed.
The Gungho team writes smart and snappy copy and designs
impactful advertisements that convey the client’s messages
succinctly and engage with the target audience – whether the
purpose is to achieve a direct response or to impart information
as part of an awareness campaign.
Gungho Design has been working with BT Redcare for a number of
years now, on a wide range of projects including a series of technical
literature material and magazine advertisements.
On this particular occasion, Gungho Design was commissioned to help
BT Redcare to create a campaign to address customer attrition in the
security systems market to competitors that were offering a cheaper
but drastically limited product range in comparison.
We worked together to create a personalised die cut mailer, trade
magazine advertisement, mini website and an electronic questionnaire.
In order to illustrate the ‘Get more for your money’ strapline we used
an ice cream image that became increasingly more mouth-wateringly
enticing as extra treats were added. To give their audience an extra
incentive, there was the opportunity to win an iPod for those who
completed a questionnaire on the BT website.

Since winning a pitch in 2008, Gungho has been working closely
with MHRA to produce two successive editions of its Annual Report
Working on the ﬁrst publication involved arranging a photo shoot to
include each of the Executive and Agency Board members. The creative
team at Gungho art directed this shoot in order to ensure that the
images worked with the chosen concept of the design.
MHRA were thrilled with the ﬁnal result and when the time came to
produce the next Annual Report, Gungho was the obvious choice.
As a creative task, the second document was slightly more challenging
than the previous time. Having originally set such a high standard, we
wanted to exceed the expectations of our MHRA colleagues and to,
once again, impress them with our creative approach. We presented a
number of visual concepts using shapes from their logo and branding as
devices for imagery and headings, implementing the use of bold images
while retaining their corporate colour palette throughout. The overall
design combining these elements was innovative and stylish – and we
have delighted the client once again.
We had initially worked with this award winning jewellery designer to
produce some promotional literature. To celebrate Sam Uhbi’s twentieth
year, Gungho Design was commissioned to produce a high quality

A high quality perfect bound book was meticulously produced and
included a cover laid in cloth and a debossed logo. The memento was
given away at special events and at Sam Uhbi’s ﬂagship store in west
London during the anniversary period.
British Red Cross, like any charity, depends on donations in order
to operate its services. Being the season of goodwill, Christmas
is a time when people have the propensity to be extra generous.
From a fundraiser’s point of view, this is an excellent opportunity to
increase revenue. However, given that the period is strictly limited
and competition from other worthy causes can be ﬁerce, fundraising
campaigns need to be carefully considered and precisely timed.
Gungho Design was commissioned to develop a printed marketing
campaign to advertise a Christmas fundraising fair in the heart of
London’s ﬁnancial sector.
The materials needed to be visually appealing to busy City workers
and also had to convey the classic heritage of the hosting venue, the
Guildhall. By using a clever photo montage of London’s skyline placed
inside a snowglobe with the Guildhall in the background, we were able
to convey the right balance of message, addressing the client’s brief to
The campaign was extremely effective in attracting shoppers to this
event. The client was so delighted with the Gungho team that we
were subsequently commissioned to produce a similar campaign.

Gungho is particularly skilled in taking information that is often quite
complex and dry and presenting it in a very appealing and accessible
format. We work on a wide variety of documents of this kind both
for public and private sector organisations. We can also create

to be working on the content of their proposal right up to the 11th hour.

Regent’s College Conference Centre commissioned Gungho to revamp
and develop its corporate folder and hospitality menus.
The client considered the existing marketing material to be very “clunky”,
cluttered and old fashioned. Gungho was asked to develop a stylish,
creative treatment that would appeal to corporate clients and reﬂect the
location of the conference centre within Regent’s Park. However, the
key stipulation within the brief was that they did not want to use any
imagery of the building or the park itself.
Gungho created an illustrative approach with a ribbon style sweeping
in a circular motion signifying the college’s address at Inner Circle. The
ribbons were cleverly employed to create a sense of texture, such as that
of grass, linking elements of the environment but without using actual
images of the park or conference centre. The folder included a spot UV
ﬁnish to add a touch of sophistication.
The overall design is very elegant and contemporary – which is precisely
how the conference centre wants to be perceived.

IMarEST originally approached Gungho Design to redesign their
posters for the Stanley Gray Lectures. These were a series of seminars
that took place each month, varying in subject matter related to the
marine industry and attended by IMarEST members as well as the
Gungho Design developed a style for the design that was clear
and concise, exploring typography that conveyed authority and
professionalism, appropriate to its target audience. The information
was displayed with block, solid colours, bringing the essence of the
event to life and making the posters visually engaging for the public.
IMarEST was delighted with the standard of work that Gungho Design
produced for them and thus we became the design partner for all of
their event material ranging from programmes to web mailers.
Gungho produced an advertisement concept to promote the catering
and hospitality services that Middle Temple Hall provides for various
special occasions including formal business functions, weddings
In order to fully grasp the requirements of this brief, our creative team
paid a site visit to the grounds of Middle Temple Hall to absorb its
surroundings. We carried out thorough background research, gaining
knowledge that formed the foundation for the creative process. The
core objective was to gain more business from a younger market.
So, whilst the historical signiﬁcance of Middle Temple Hall was not
underplayed, Gungho was very careful to ensure that the venue was not
portrayed as old fashioned or stuffy.
Gungho developed a series of elegant, modern and sophisticated
advertisements using the strapline “Imagine a venue…” followed by a
few, bespoke words that captured the essence and beauty of the Hall.
The design represents Middle Temple Hall as a stylish and elegant venue
and the strapline was created as an aspirational, inspirational catalyst to
encourage people to imagine the possibilities for their special day in this
