DESIGN& WORKFLOW

Helping students, academics and host organisations through the work placements process.

BIRKBECK, UNIVERSITY OF LONDON
Dr’s Sophie Hope and Lorraine Lim of Birkbeck Arts commissioned us to create a website and collection of resources to share the outcomes of their Critical Work Placements project.

Research gathered from a number of students, academics and host organisations fed into a series of workflow diagrams and an agreement to which all three parties involved can sign up.

In contrast to standard academic documents, we were keen to create a visually arresting design, breaking down the wealth of text into digestible chunks. The bright and clean visual identity was inspired by career progression and the work of artist Vincent Perrottet.

VISUAL IDENTITY

Critical Work Placements Logo




KNWE_Identity-5



I’ve worked with Design& Co on a number of projects and I’m always pleased to share the results. Clear communication is important to me and I can easily discuss my ideas with them knowing they’ll make helpful suggestions. I always receive very positive comments on the designs they’ve produced; they’re clear, helpful and user friendly.

BRAND GUIDE

A simple brand guide including type, colour, logo and pattern specifications can be used in the future to maintain continuity across all future digital and print material.



WORKFLOW DIAGRAMS

AMPR_Identity_10
We designed 3 workflow diagrams showing the process for each party involved in the work placement.

There is also an additional diagram mapping all 3 workflows, in a linear format with cross hatch background patterns the different stages and who will be involved during each are clearly defined.

WEBSITE
We designed and built a WordPress website to house all of the resources and background information on the project, employing a simple layout and clean design to present the large amount of text which needs to be included.
