Dewynters

May 2009 - Aug 2013
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • Established since 1872, Dewynters has created some of the world’s most iconic theatre brands including The Phantom of the Opera, Cats and Les Misérables. It is the leading full-service agency in the theatre, arts and live entertainment sector. I created digital design and animation elements for many large integrated campaigns including immersive multimedia websites, rich-media banners (using Sizmek and Flash) and digital out-of-home advertising (using After Effects), as well as social media apps and content. My primary accounts were Disney, Universal, Cameron Mackintosh and The Really Useful Group.

  • Full Time
  • As part of the in-house graphics team I was responsible for the design, production and project management of a wide range of digital and printed materials for marketing, education and fund-raising purposes. I am particularly proud of a large-format touchscreen project which I wholly managed; three of these screens were installed in the theatre foyer windows by London’s Southbank, allowing passers-by to easily browse an electronic version of the season brochure. I designed the interface then built it in Adobe Flash using ActionScript.
