Interview and case studies for minorities in parliament project
As part of the representing minorities in Parliament initiative, the IPU required a set of documents covering interviews with worldwide parliamentarians (Canada, Iraq, Peru, Germany and others) as well as case studies of what difficulties and successes minorities in various countries have had.
Corporate guidelines for
CBS Outdoor International
Created earlier in the year, CBS Outdoor International required a set of corporate guidelines for their European offices. Using their website as a starting point I created a 64 page set of guidelines covering logo usage, typography, stationery, cover structures, advertising and supporting materials.
Identity for Custard Communications
Custard Communications is a PR and Marketing firm specific to the hospitality industry. The brief highlighted the need to be different from the staid and predictable designs used by similar firms servicing the industry. Quirky, memborable and with reference to brands such as Ben & Jerry's helped in creation of the logo, stationery and website template.
Membership benefits and services 2010 for the IOH
This 20 page booklet highlights the benefits and services of becoming a member of the Institute of Hospitality. The images have been treated with a dry brush effect to give a more organic, unusual and consistent treatment. The visual theme linking the images concerns members and their working environments.
International Day of Democracy brochures and posters
In 2007, The United Nations set September 15 as the International Day of Democracy - a time when parliaments around the world celebrate democracy and "to serve as a reminder that the need to promote and protect democracy is as urgent now as ever".
A brochure highlighting ways in which Parliaments can better engage with the public was produced in English, French and Spanish. A strong unifying logo/title was produced and adapted its common elements to the structure within the brochure.
A2 posters were also produced.
Upgrade membership leaflet
A simple leaflet for the Institute of Hospitality to help incentive existing members to upgrade - dynamic and upward imagery helps reinforce the message.
Leaflets for conference
A leaflet was recently created for the Inter-Parliamentary Union to promote their conference on 'Parliaments, minorities and indiginous peoples'.
Leaflets for Haiti initiative
These two leaflets were produced for a high level meeting concerning the proposed forumalisation of a Haitian National Civic Service in the wake of the earthquake. The leaflets were used as part of a high level meeting between key Haitian and international 'actors'.
The cover design uses a staggered geometric design which was influenced by tectonic plates and their graphic representation.
Concept for updated 'Gorgeous' website
I was recently tasked with providing a concept for the website for interior design consultancy, Gorgeous. Initially a homepage was designed and used quality photograhy from completed projects. Sections promoting news, testimonials and recent projects were added to aid in conveying a confident and lively organisation.
Nip and tuck for Hendy Consulting website
Originally designed back in 2002, the Hendy Consulting website required a slight visual refresh and an additional microsite for their healthcare imaging consultancy offering.
Part of the update was to restructure the homepage and implement a simple flash animation of the various service offerings.
This small project highlights that a simple nip and tuck is all it takes to give your site an improved presence without a redesign from the ground up.
Website update and forum integration for Bytemark
As part of the new website for Bytemark various updates and integrations were required.
The first was adding a new section for their Managed Hosting offering which needed to sit within the sites design as well as be a prominent landing page for those coming direct (as will be the case when their new marketing for the service kicks in).
The second was to integrate their forum into the new site design. Changing their forum software to Vanilla I was tasked with completely redesigning the default theme to one which would look as much as part of the main site as possible. Thus lots of css coding as well as getting under the hood of Vanilla was required. The result speaks for itself; although hosted on another server the forum seemlessly blends in with the rest of the site.
