SHINE and Age Exchange’s Journey

As an established charity and a much loved drop in centre and cafe within the community we were tasked to retain the trust and equity in the old brand but to give it a modern feel to see the charity into the future at the cutting edge of dementia care.
Karen, one of our Senior Designers found working on this project very poignant having watch her Granda suffer with dementia. She would have loved to reach out to him using some of the creative memory practices developed by Age Exchange.


With community very much at the heart of the charity we developed an information board system for the cafe facade windows. These act as a ‘what’s on guide’ for the theatre, cafe and community classes and also as an introduction to the work done by the charity. We also redesigned the centre directional signage making it easier for patrons to find their way around The Exchange.

We created a range of brochure designs, window displays and directional signs to be used within the cafe.

The Website

We also created a website to help the charity communicate its work to a wider audience and as a portal for the local community to keep up to date with events and workshops.

A Fully Responsive Website

Fully responsive designs make sure that all viewers have access to all the information they can get on the desktop site without compromise.

Our Work

Below are some examples of the standard of creativity that we deliver at SHINE. We can support you with bringing order to an existing brand or creation of a new one and the same approach can be applied to digital. Perhaps your website is not performing the way you want it to?
