The Haven + London

The Haven + London is unique community where the creators, thinkers and change-makers of our world can find balance, peace and inner strength to be the best that they can be.

The vision of the Haven + London is a world where every creative is free to achieve their creative potential. They are the only UK Charity solely dedicated to supporting the emotional, spiritual and mental wellbeing of the creative community in London. No other organisation is meeting the specific needs of this fragile but vital community where debt, addictions, depression, anxiety, self-harm and suicides are rife.

In working towards their vision they provide emotional and professional support that empowers the creative community to flourish and thrive. This includes ongoing pastoral care, professional counselling, networking opportunities, personal and professional skills development workshops and training opportunities, creative conferences and research.


We were asked to design a fundraising brochure which digs deep into the need, highlighting the key areas of crisis, combined with explanations from the recipients themselves. We styled the content with a rich palette of colour and created a stunning set of double exposure treatments to bring to live the concept of creatives in crisis.


The brochure was printed on a smooth uncoated stock which adds a rich depth to the printed colours and the A5 landscape format results in an easy to handle size. We are absolutely delighted with the finished brochure – it’s fantastic to be given such freedom to design such an important document and we really value the trust The Haven + London placed with us.

“As a small Charity dedicated to supporting the mental health and wellbeing of London’s creative sector, The Haven + London has been so lucky to have had the support and outstanding creative expertise of Natalie and her team at Crush. Having supported us since the charity started we have benefited from the full gamut of Crush’s design services from web and digital through to our latest mission critical Advocacy Brochure. Against challenging budgets the team at Crush have always managed to produce something beautiful and powerful that runs right to the heart of who we are and celebrates the amazing creative people who we exist to help. Three cheers for Crush from all at The Haven + London!”
