Camden Model of Social Care - A Tree of Life

Inspiring to work for such a progressive team with Tim Fisher in Camden council and in collaboration with Karen Partridge at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust (and many team members behind the scenes).

This will be printed as a giant 2A0 poster for people to see at work - when we finally get back to our offices!

Some details of the image:

Animating a story - Wellbeing in the Workplace

I've been collaborating with a small team to create a short animation. 

It's been an interesting process, and is teaching me quite a lot about how collaboration leads to more than the sum of each of our parts, and it's been quite fun too!

Here are some 'work in progress' images - to show the storyboard process,  and then the short film will follow soon.

Parents for Future

I was asked to capture the responses to an online viewing of the film 2040, drawing out the inspiration and great ideas that people responded to.

As Damon Gameau,  director of the film, has discovered on his travels - there's already so many good ideas in action 'out there', but we need to try and scale these and make them part of everyday life.

Kick The Dust - National Lottery Heritage Fund

Last month I was asked to capture a virtual live event with a cohort of young people who are working within the heritage sector. 

'Kick the Dust' is an umbrella term for several heritage projects. It's a chance for younger people to get involved in the sector, add their perspective and skills, and hopefully improve things/shake things up a bit!

We were all still locked-down at that point, but the stories of resilience and just 'keeping on going' were really inspiring. One of the positives from remote working was that suddenly young people's digital skills came to the fore, and they were now being asked for advice and could contribute even more. 

This was the full day:

These were some of the individual talks given by the young people:

Some of the questions raised by the new ways of working, plus their responses to the challenges below:

Website Illustration

This was for a local authority website, for children and youth services. There were a variety of subjects, people and places to capture and bring to life. The main aim of using illustration was to help people connect and engage with the website and hopefully use it more effectively.

This is a London borough and my brief included a specific note to honour the diversity of the people who live and work here.

These will be used as banner headings for various subjects:

And a selection of smaller illustrations to dot around the different pages:
