Robert Jones,  from design and branding agency Wolff Olins, writes about  the branding of ‘doing good’ in this fascinating blog.

How can social sector organisations use branding and design techniques to highlight their cause in an increasingly loud and busy marketplace? How can branding empower the ‘receiver’ as well as expanding the reach of the ‘giver’?
