‘Stiff Upper Lip’…

…A new image produced following an invitation to take part in the Great British Postcard Competition by the Marketing team for Saxoprint – Freestyle Interactive.

This piece is a response to the traditional ‘Stiff Upper Lip’ attitude of the British as described below:

None of us should be embarrassed, worried or even scared to speak about issues that affect our lives, why then are the British so scared about speaking up for ourselves or others and tarnished with a ‘stiff upper lip’ attitude? There are stories about nurses worried that if they say anything detrimental about their working conditions that they will lose their jobs, MP’s that have to resign when speaking up about the root causes for problems and even members of the Royal Family who can’t (until now) admit that major events have affected them. Recently the head of the London Fire Brigade spoke up about counselling after the Grenfell Fire disaster – maybe things are slowly starting to change – I for one hope so!

Inclusive Communication…

…New cover and internal for Bulletin Magazine.

A cover and internal full page image for Bulletin, the magazine for the Royal College of Speech & Language Therapists to accompany a major article on ‘Inclusive Communication’.
We all expect in 2017 for physically disabled persons to be able to easily access public buildings and people who are blind, partially sighted or have hearing problems should also be well accounted for, but people who have speech and communication problems aren’t offered an equal amount of thought and care.  At present there isn’t an Internationally recognised ‘communication access’ symbol, so over the past year the RCSLT have been working with the ‘Stroke Association’, ‘Communication Matters’ and others to consider and develop a possible symbol for communication access.
Visit: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/C7F9Z95 to get involved in the process of choosing a suitable symbol/logo.
