THE CLIENT:

Bloody Good Period is a charity that provides period products to refugees, asylum seekers and those that can’t afford them. In recent years they’ve expanded; delivering high-quality menstrual education to various audiences, and working towards creating menstrual equity—all whilst ending shame, stigma and judgement around menstruation.

THE IDEA:

To take the existing, humble event and blow it up; organising more acts, taking over a larger venue, creating exclusive merch and hosting a larger audience—all whilst still keeping that friendly, inclusive, family-feel that BGP does so brilliantly.



Bloody Good Period refuses to shy away from imagery and messaging that others may consider taboo; always celebrating periods in all of their messy, human glory. Our event branding aimed to reflect that: we developed a lo-res, DIY approach to typography and imagery which highlighted the charity’s activist roots, and introduced various shapes and splodges in reference to the real experiences of people who menstruate. No blue-blood here.

Bloody Funny 2019 welcomed over 650 guests to Union Chapel, and raised in excess of £15,000 for Bloody Good Period: more than 10 times what previous comedy fundraisers had made for the charity, and enough to fund around 1,500 periods for refugees and asylum seekers at Bloody Good Period drop-in centres.
