The Office of Fair Trading required a simple film to tell people how to use the Sales of Goods Act Hub. Working with barraclough associates I helped generate the overall concept, and then developed and wrote the script.
Assets were lovingly created by barraclough, and test scenes were animated by Tony Carberry. Once pre-production was signed off production was handled by mi, with sound design and VO recording sorted by the ever dependable Zelig.
I was Creative Director on the project – which is actually pretty easy when everyone involved is very good at what they do.

70% of offenders have some sort of communication difficulty. Many professionals and offenders within the justice system do not fully understand how broad ranging communication difficulties can be – or how much Speech Language and Communication expertise could improve their working lives.
‘The Box’ – is a 20 minute free e-learning tool. The overall aim was to educate the audience about the many types of communication difficulties and how they impact upon people’s lives. A crucial secondary aim was to inform the audience of the importance of Speech and Language expertise.
I was responsible for devising the concept and then leading the creative development of all collateral which included interactive live action games, online assets, animation, and video content. (Flash development by Matt Booth).
The Box will be launched publicly in 2012, but is has already had significant prerelease interest from the Police Force, General Medical Council, the BBC website, Youth Justice Board and will most likely be rolled out to all education personnel in all of the UK’s adult secure institutions through Virtual Campus. © Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists.
Another animation created in collaboration with Squad.
This time The Office of Fair Trading required a simple film to tell people how to use the Distance Selling Hub.
The process and team was the same as the previous film. If something isn’t broken don’t fix it.

Vision+Media Annual Report. This annual report was released in interesting times. Vision+Media was having it’s funding cut and was unsure of the future. Some people were optimistic, some weren’t. I decided to tackle this head on and was very happy that the board was brave enough to run this as the cover to the annual report. © Vison+Media.
I was creative director at Mi for about three years, until late 2012. I was responsible for the creative output of the whole studio, and was directly involved with most projects. This one is a self promotional piece. Have a look at their site for lots of other examples of the type of thing I got up to. © Strictly Mi

Plug in campaign for Vision+Media.
A campaign to encourage digital and design agencies to access the wealth of young talent available in the North West.
Run by Vision+Media, creative agencies could take advantage of subsidised placements – with the right candidates being found for them. I was responsible for delivery of the whole campaign which consisted of DM, press advertising and digital media – creative, illustration, press artwork, digital animation and output to publications.
A bit of fun.

The science behind meeting, thinking and doing more creatively.
To complement the branding work I had done for Rapport Events we invented a special branch of science – eventology.
We then produced a work book to explain this new science. Amongst other things the book explained how to avoid boring people to death with Powerpoint, and how to turn a mood hoover back into a human.
I was responsible for the concept and copy – graphic design and illustration was by Paul Rose at Rapport.
