Falmouth are one of the UK's leading specialist universities for the creative arts and we were delighted to produce their prospectus for 2 years.
Our aim was to create a simple but powerful impression of life at Falmouth, through the eyes of the staff and students. We commissioned and art directed a series of black and white portraits and reportage photography to show the benefits of living in such a culturally rich and inspirational environment.
The prospectus won the HEIST ANNUAL EDUCATION MARKETING AWARD FOR BEST UK HIGHER EDUCATION PROSPECTUS recognizing its bold new creative direction and innovative use of print techniques and papers.
Channel4Learning is the educational publishing arm of the TV company and approached us to produce a series of activity books and teaching aids to accompany their Schools Key Stage 1 and 2 programmes. We commissioned illustrators and designed books to engage their young audience and generally tried to have fun with the layouts – which isn't difficult when you’re big kids at heart.
Designing for people with learning disabilities demands unique and sometimes challenging requirements. It's a careful balancing act between adhering to compliance regulations and presenting the information in a way that's interesting, inspiring and fun. Legibility, typography, font size, spacing of objects, and even the colour contrast between the various elements on the page, are all basic design principles needed to help people to realise their full potential.
