Why does saydesignUK…

Our Social Mission

25+ years’ of intelligent branding, creative design and strategic thinking enables saydesignUK to catapult clients to their business best. We also have a social mission to support marginalised groups and non-profit organisations achieve their professional goals.

What does that mean to us?

It’s all about being a business for good and giving back to make a real positive contribution. Using our knowledge from the past to benefit the less advantaged people today, to help build a better business infrastructure to benefit communities and individuals in the future.

What does that mean to you?

We are all in it together. Every client that works with saydesignUK becomes a part of our social mission. Enabling us to support those less advantaged. It creates a network of support that reaches far and wide, becoming a part of a business that is making a positive change for our communities.

How do we do this?

saydesignUK supports several non-profit organisations and independent businesses run by people from marginalised groups.

We do this this by

  • Volunteering some free time to help with branding, marketing, strategic planning, and technical support
  • Mentoring volunteers so they can grow their skills and confidence to start building a future career
  • Giving a 25% discount on fees for non-profits and lower income individuals
  • Payment plans to spread costs, making goals more achievable
  • Free advice and technical support
  • Attending client meetings to see where we can contribute and support

What we want to achieve

  • Transform into a social enterprise design agency to be able to raise more funding to support these groups and individuals
  • Receive support and funding from established organisations
  • Donate 25% of our profits towards this support for others
  • Deliver mentoring courses and talks
  • Establish pathways to increase support of independent businesses

Testimonial from Clare Kennedy, CEO

“Well, I’d like to start by saying, how blessed we are as a very small unfunded Brighton based charity, Kennedy St CiO to have such a fabulous creative businesswoman, volunteering some precious time and expertise to us. Whilst this pandemic has seen some charities close down, the need for our services has sadly skyrocketed, so we have had to develop a vast amount of new virtual recovery support platforms, literally overnight. Without Stephanie’s support, none of it would have been possible. So, to say we recommend saydesignUK would be an understatement. Every company, charity, business for good, needs Stephanie on their team.”
