Novelty charitable custom branded products

The project required the production of a product range which could be sold within the Hilton Hotels Group to raise funds for the foundation. Using the latest technology and production methods we created a bespoke range of characterised ducks has been created which are both fun and collectable.

Custom Unicorn rubber duck

For each duck design a clay prototype was manufactured as part of the moulding process. Utilising CAD design allowed us to show the customer what the next generation would look like. The end result is a highly collectable product which generates revenue for the foundation.

To date, DM Thomas Foundation have sold over 200,000 sets of ducks and the money raised from sales has contributed to over 200 grants awarded by the Foundation across Europe, benefitting over 11,000 young people.

Innovative bespoke packaging

The ducks were packaged in an innovative, sustainable packing that clearly demonstrates the motivation behind the product, with a call to action for customers to collect the entire duck collection!
