Back in July of 2010 we were contacted by Jay at Hudson PR about the possibility of producing a calendar for author, radio presenter, model and charity campaigner Leanne Grose.
During October 2010 Leanne went on a photo shoot in Italy and returned with some great images to use in her calendar. By the start of November Leanne’s team had everything in placed for us and then we were given the brief:
Have you seen my website ? www.officialleanne.com ? im a very girly girl and would like something similar if poss – perhaps a dark purple with a hint of pink ? I want it to look slick but also want to have my ‘stamp’ on it
The calendar is to be called Leanne’s ‘Love & Laughter 2011’ Calendar, with a sub text of :
A unique motivational calendar, designed to make you think, feel and smile !
Author, Radio Presenter, Media Personality and Charity Campaigner, Leanne has gone from losing the loss of a limb at a young age and having many operations and treatments, to moving to London, becoming a published author, having a top selling worldwide fitness dvd on the shelves, and relishing her new life and challenges.
Leanne has managed to turn a potentionally devestating blow into a positive and vibrant future which has included throwing herself from an aeroplane and abseiling down the famous Battersea Power Station. She believes anything is possible and has wanted to make this calendar to make people feel inspired to achieve their own dreams. Packed with thought provoking, glamorous photos it also contains motivational hints and tips to help you through and make 2011 your best yet !
I have looked at your site and we’ve gone for the A4 (can we have back to back as I’d like to get the pic in plus we have lots of text. On some of your calendars I can see a watermark – I’ve attached my cartoon logo and thought perhaps this may look good? or else maybe my signature saying ‘love & laughter, Leanne x’ as that’s how i sign my books.
So after a few designs were submitted Leanne agreed that this page design looked best and this was how we themed the whole calendar.
And I think you will agree that overall calendar design does incorporate all the features that Leanne wanted within her calendar. The calendar launch was covered by OK magazine and was at London’s Studio Valbonne. The event was Hosted by TV Personalities Nick Ede & Donal MacIntyre with celebrity DJ, England Rugby International, Martin Offiah. Special Guest performances from Britain’s Got Talent Star, Damon Scott, singer/songwriter and actor Luc Floreani and new talent, Alice Watts, Camilla Dallerup, Billy Murray, Shane Ritchie, Amanda Lamb, Emma Noble, Scott Henshall and many many others…
The party was a real celebration of Leanne’s return to work, the amazing motivational calendar and also in aid of Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Care. Leanne also took the time to sign copies of her calendar, books and dvds on the night.
