How NCAH started their print or packaging design journey

Company name

Nursing Careers Allied Health (NCAH)

Overview

The NCAH magazine has been in circulation for over 15 years. It started life as ‘Nursing Careers’ - a magazine promoting employment and education related opportunities for nurses in Australia and New Zealand. Allied Health was subsequently added to create the name NURSING CAREERS ALLIED HEALTH. (Allied Health staff includes professionals such as Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Psychologists, Dietitians, Speech Therapists etc)

With the launch of our website product and the domain name ‘ncah.com.au’ our name and branding on the magazine was all changed to NCAH. The problem is that ‘NCAH’ as a brand doesn’t mean anything, and while our magazine has excellent product recognition (i.e. when nurses see the cover of our magazine they immediately know what it is the brand name ‘NCAH’ has very little recognition, and gives no clue as to what we actually offer.

The NCAH product is associated with exciting career opportunities for nurses and allied health professionals. Most nurses perceive the magazine to be the place to go if you’re looking for a career adventure, particularly overseas working adventures.

So the challenge with this design project is to build upon and not undermine our product recognition but create a brand and identify that will have meaning across both our magazine and web platforms.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

Nurses and allied health professionals in Australia and New Zealand.

Needs to appeal to a range of health professionals both young and old (so not just a Gen Y, but also some conservative nurse types).

Health professionals in Australia / New Zealand as in many places in the world are over-worked, under-paid and we want our brand to be all about presenting exciting career opportunities to them.
