The Coronavirus pandemic meant a live networking event had to be cancelled – I volunteered to turn it digital, creating the first GUTS Virtual Experience!
My introduction to communications, at the beginning in 2017 I was responsible for the photography and design of the newspaper. I gradually began contributing articles of my own, eventually discovering a love for writing and informing an internal audience.
As a runner I’ve always loved taking part in events – it’s all about the medal and the t-shirt! Events and running clubs are great way to build a sense of community and togetherness. With that in mind, one day I walked between Liberty Steel’s Stocksbridge and Rotherham sites, working out a bang-on half marathon route between them. After that, it was a no-brainer to organise a charity event!
In October 2018 Stocksbridge steel works (Liberty Steel) celebrated it’s 175th anniversary, as the internal graphic designer it was my job to create a campaign for the 900 staff onsite, and something for the external community.
An existing brand supplying various types of fencing to builders and trade.
I created multiple booklets and marketing literature. I also created assets for an app – 3D models of each fence panel type to help visualise the amount of panels required for a specific area.
An artificial grass retailer aimed at trade customers, client wanted a smart, modern logo that was unobtrusive.
I produced a booklet to be given to trade customers with all the information they needed about the products and services they offer, as well as copy convincing sceptics of artificial grass to try the product. Used photographs of the warehouse and interior to showcase the scale of the business, further cementing the trust in their ability to supply product. In the artificial grass industry I found supply was an issue to most trade customers, so I needed to provide reassurance.
