A full wide-ranging visual style was created to encompass all Mental Health Awareness campaigns outward facing of Hamilton-Brown.

This visual language has a real human centric feeling to it, with a strong illustrative style and hand drawn lettering, to better show the human emotion behind the campaign. Often faces are obscured or hidden to better highlight this.

The main focus of the campaign is people and at Hamilton-brown we’re not only acknowledging that mental health is important, we’re talking about it.

The time to talk campaign used a ‘head in the clouds’ visual to better represent the stigma behind being unable or choosing not to talk about a tricky subject or situation.

For this campaign we dug into our own thoughts and feelings to form the basis or our messaging.

"A small chat can make a big difference to someone in need"

Mental health issues affect one in four across the uk, yet too many people are still made to feel isolated and ashamed because of this. ‘Time to Talk Day’ encourages everyone to be more open about mental health and more importantly encouraging people to start a conversation.
