    BBC Children in NeedSpot the difference. — A simple, flexible identity derived from BBC Children in Need's most recogniseable asset — Pudsey Bear. Bright colours, uplifting imagery, a bespoke typeface and the humble spot formed the basis of a brand that could be adapted to suit a range of audiences and initiatives. From fun and friendly fundraising campaigns to high-end auctions, the identity could flex to fit any purpose without losing its personality. — Created at Fivefootsix.
