RSPB - short film to promote a new membership scheme

I was commissioned by the NCP: to bring to life the future view of the RSPB membership after consulting with groups across the UK over the last 18 months.

This was made into a short film to animate the voices and ideas for the future. 

Thanks for the skilful animation by Charlie Stewart from Scram Studio:

Website images for Depression Genetics

I was asked to create some illustrations on the theme of Depression in the study of Genetics for University College London, in collaboration with their colleagues at the University of Peshawar, Pakistan.

It was interesting to explore this with different perspectives of another culture and to collaborate with scientists and psychiatrists. I hope it helps to open up the subject to more people and to remove stigma.

Live jobs - in person !

Phew, they're back - actual live jobs, with 3D people !

This was for the Camden Disability Action group with Camden council yesterday, this was the first of three sessions I've been asked to cover. They want to create an employment service together and give more disabled people the chance to get into work that they enjoy.

The most upsetting part of yesterday was hearing about the effects of long-term bullying on people's mental health, as well as the continuing stigma that people feel about disclosing any mental health conditions.

Healthy Relationship Programme

Some drawings for a short film introducing participants to a course on preventing domestic violence. The main aim of the course is to stop young women becoming victims of domestic abuse, and for them to develop a ring of confidence. 

Commissioned by Positive Psychologist Angela Birch. This is a tricky subject to visualise so it was good to work collaboratively. Angela had some great visual metaphors that I received gratefully!

The course has already been in use across London and the next one is starting in Lewisham in the coming weeks.

RSPB Workshops - The next Big Campaign for 2022

What will it be? Over the next few days I'll be covering 3 workshops for the RSPB in order to come up with ideas for future campaigns. The ideas are under wraps, but here are some questions that started off the conversation, plus themes that the teams will be exploring:

The latest COVID-19 Under 18s video, hot off the press!

This whole period has been stressful and isolating and at times I've just been so darned depressed - but making these videos and seeing them come together with the editing talents of Richard Lohan always cheers me up!

So sit back, relax, get some snacks, and enjoy the video!


Asking the right questions

These drawings were commissioned by an organisation to encourage staff to dig deeper when asking children and young people about their identity and what is important to them. 

A lot of things are not obvious when it comes to diversity and inclusion, so asking the right questions, in the right way, can really help someone open up and talk more about what matters to them.
