I Want 2 B

Design, branding, IA : print, web

Led inspirational and targeted branding development of ‘I Want 2 B...’, a young people’s education & career pathways project for Learning and Skills Council.

This included creative direction for print and online campaigns, based around a bright ‘cut-out’ theme, both alluding to users’ aspirations of being ‘cut-out’ for various careers, and also to give a fresh and approachable appeal towards teenagers who may have been intimidated by a more corporate-looking government campaign.

Also involved in co-development of information architecture and template design for website.

Port Cities

Information Architecture, design : web

This project was for a consortium drawing together five agencies from across Britain, (including Bristol City Council and National Maritime Museum, London.)

Responsible for liaison on-site with all stakeholders across the country, I worked closely with them to define requirements and produce a solution to accommodate their individual needs.

Created an overarching new brand identity for an archiving/educational project, to display online the extensive collections, and new interpretive material created to support the source materials. Created the brand and visual branding elements for sub-brands, and followed the project through to site delivery, directing information architecture and detailed template design.

The site design enabled ease of navigation, search and retrieval of information, and cross referencing, with support for display of text and multimedia in flexible templates.
