McDonald’s Affogato McDonald’s, client Commission by McDonald’s in Freshwater Place, Melbourne, to produce posters to promote their new dessert, affogato, an introductory dessert for the summer of 2016. The concept is to demonstrate affogato as a simple dessert made fresh with brewed espresso; food was photographed live and in-store. I have produced two posters for McDonald’s, each with a different style of art direction. 11 x 17, 4-colour, digital.

Boroondara Customer Journey Maps City of Boroondara Counil, client The City of Boroondara Council (Melbourne) commissioned Swinburne University to redesign their nine customer journey maps to a more intuitive and easier to understand design. Customer journey maps are now a popular tool to communicate customer experience within human-centred service design processes. Co-design approach was used as well as research to obtain the optimum solution. I was tasked with creating the icons, design map prototypes, assisting user-testing workshops and finalising academic reports. The outcome has greatly benefited the comprehension of Council with the newly designed infographics for all levels of staff.

The circular customer-centric diagram communicates a higher-level mapping of customer life events. Placing the customer at the centre, visually and symbolically, was crucial to the research for communicating insights into the customer viewpoint and bringing the customer voice to life across the organisation.

Alive Group Festival Posters Alive Group, client Alive Group is an event consultant firm in fashion, food and community festivals operating in Melbourne, Sydney and overseas.

Poster created for the South East Asia Festival. The challenge was to present food from all the 10 ASEAN countries. I thought of presenting food from a top view manner with labels to help viewers identify the origin of food. Promotion in Facebook drew an average 10k visitors over the course of the event, while 31k people were ‘interested’. The poster has since been used for the year 2017 as well. 11 x 17, 4-colour, digital.

Entering the Deep Sea University brief An education pack to promote creatures of the deep sea– a mesmerizing topic from Museum Victoria, Melbourne. The pack is intended to be distributed as learning material to people of all ages. The envelop (right contains three items elaborating different aspects of the deep sea - layers of the deep sea, deep sea gigantism, and bioluminescence. These items can be repacked into the envelop and be repeatedly used. (below) A booklet on deep-sea gigantism with a side flap for human size comparisons

Interaction and user experience was a key part of the concepts. I wanted users to unravel the deep sea and experienced the depth personally. With the deep-sea gigantism and bioluminescence, users are able to understand these concepts through playing with the booklets.
