The Muscle Help Foundation (MHF) is a small multi-award winning, family-centred charity, now delivering virtual experiences in the UK as a direct consequence of COVID-19. These interventions are called Muscle Dreams and they are designed for children & young people (8-28yrs) with the muscle wasting disease, Muscular Dystrophy (MD).
MHF’s growing impact is being felt by beneficiaries and their families across the UK – from improved confidence, greater self-esteem, and an increased sense of hopefulness to a powerful shared identity that connects families, giving a platform to share knowledge, memories and establish lasting friendships.
This role is a volunteer position. You will assist MHF with digital design support. You’ll use your experience and knowledge of Adobe InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop to deliver assets. Some of the many and varied tasks may include creating and updating the following:
This role will suit someone with a passion for digital design. You will have related qualifications and a level of commercial experience of designing in a voluntary or paid capacity or perhaps you’re an ambitious design student looking to put learning into practice.
As an MHF volunteer, we’ll make sure you are given all the support you need. Front-end ad hoc support will be given by MHF’s multi award-winning Brand Guardian and long-standing partner to the charity. This will include an explanation of our brand guidelines and familiarisation of how we do things.
