  • Awareness Campaign | Ovarian Cancer
    Awareness Campaign | Ovarian CancerFor charity Ovarian Cancer Action I created this brand identity. On World Ovarian Cancer Day across the country volunteers are handed out 33,000 roses with symptoms cards attached to raise awareness. Each rose represented a woman living with the disease and served as a symbol of hope. Using their brand colour teal as a watercolour textured background, and rosed to spell out 33,000, these assets were used across social media and press as the campaign identity.
  • Driving Game Goes Viral On Social
    Driving Game Goes Viral On SocialFor parking app just park we created a simple one button driving game. The piece went viral on social which in turn led to coverage, 400+ links to be precise. We took arguably the most exciting part of a driving test (the emergency stop) and combined it with reaction data to give age as an output. Age is a big motivator making it addictive.
