Topo Topo is the company I registered after years of freelancing. My approach aims to be quite flexible to better fit the needs of each client: I experienced during the past years both working from my desk and on the client side, participating in collective projects or being in charge of the full outcome. I am also very open to charitable work and to collaboration with fellow designers and illustrators.Locked Pro Plan feature
Collaboration based on the client needs. I work with Lightful on the design asset for the brand and their product interface. The collaboration benefits from my UX background as well from my creative approach as creative graphic designer. I have worked in teams of developers, designers, project managers and stakeholders.
During my long collaboration with Macmillan Cancer Support I created a digital online branding style guide which would embrace a flat minimal approach to simplify and update the current style used by Macmillan. My focus also included the optimisation, through design, of fundraising process and delivery of information for people affected by cancer. The digital style guide contains a minute classification of all the elements used on their 5 websites and includes instructions on their responsive behaviour on tablet and mobile. An example of the elements covered is typography, form fields, articles, pods, videos, page architecture, links, menus, search pages and so on. Sitting in between branding and UX the collaboration also included the realisation of micro sites and the extension of the iconography. Specific UX and UI pattern were made day by day accordingly to new challenges while the organisation is orienting itself toward a more web-based approach to communicating. I was honoured to work for Macmillan!
