    uniE621 Badge Design - EcoAct
    Fresh from a brilliant rebrand by Mr B & Friends, the sustainability consultancy EcoAct (formerly Carbon Clear) tasked me with the small, not at all scary job of redesigning their flagship 30-page annual reports to fit their new look and feel. This year the reports were bigger than ever, with EcoAct expanding the collection to cover the UK, Spain, France and the US. I worked on the design, direction and layout for the 4 reports, which were printed on a beautiful, crisp stock as well as being available digitally. Once they were completed, I supported EcoAct with the creation of social assets (to promote the lovely new reports, of course 😎), some factsheets for internal use and some certification stamps for their clients. Lucy Haines, EcoAct UK's Marketing Manager, said of the work: "We enlisted Olly/Mighty Oak’s creative talents to design our annual flagship reports and get creative with our new brand. It was a pleasure to work with Olly on this project and everyone across our global business was delighted with the results. We were provided with a professional service and great value for money. We were particularly impressed by the attention to detail, creativity and sensitivity when it came to bringing to life our new brand and some particularly data-heavy content." #graphicdesign #graphicdesigner #printdesign #indesign #annualreport #badge WW

    uniE621 Modular Email Design & Template - Thistle Express Hotels
    The Brief: Aimed at the economy travel market, Thistle Express provided a clean, energetic and bright series of brand guidelines which I was tasked into transforming into a flexible, responsive template for all kinds of digital uses: marketing emails, pre & post stay, transactional, landing pages, and even more that hadn't yet been thought of. Response: I designed a series of email assets, all modular, designed to address those various client needs. Each element was designed from the outset to work on mobile devices, whilst challenging developers to try and be as on-brand as possible - like using dynamic elements and web fonts for the ultimate in readability and consistent style. Using the template was as simple as dragging-and-dropping the various elements. Users could edit the text inline and routesix's in-house software, Fox, would prepare ready-to-send HTML. It was just like Mailchimp, but way sexier. See the project below: #graphicdesigner #digitaldesign #emailmarketing #emaildesign WW
    uniE621 Email Design & Art Direction - Celebrity Cruises
    Celebrity Cruises sent out a quarterly newsletter to customers on their loyalty scheme: Captain's Club. Despite these customers being highly engaged, the emails they were receiving didn't seem to serve them: they were full of text, image-light, and didn't make the most of Celebrity's latest brand assets — like their stunning hero imagery, inspiring new colour schemes and new ship launches. The brand needed a radical new design that could reduce the amount of copy needed, be better suited and more inspirational for users, and promote the group's off-season routes. #graphicdesigner #digitaldesign #emailmarketing #emaildesign WW

    Royal Caribbean sent out a quarterly newsletter to customers on their loyalty scheme: The Crown & Anchor Society.

    uniE621 Email Design and Art Direction - Greenwich Peninsula
    Emerging over 20 years, spanning 150 acres, creating 7 new London neighbourhoods. Greenwich Peninsula is one of Europe's biggest and most ambitious regeneration projects, and I was lucky enough to spend a year working with them in my role as Art Director at routesix. The Brief: The development's scale and duration meant Greenwich Peninsula needed to attract immediate buyers as well as creating long-term awareness of the Peninsula for all of its visitors. I was drafted to help design and art direct emails and landing pages for all kinds of these campaigns: from event invitations and sales emails, to press releases, exhibition openings and editorial pieces. #graphicdesigner #digitaldesign #emailmarketing #emaildesign WW
