Pushing the boundaries of traditional journalism, #HACKED an interactive mobile site aims to introduce 'a new kind of war' Syria's cyber war.
The aim was to Introduce Syria's cyber war in a game-like format opening this current subject to a new audience. Based on Al Jazeera English award winning programme People and Power this Juliana Ruhfus documentary is re-told in a new format.
Utilising the capabilities of multimedia storytelling. We produced an interactive mobile site to re-narrate the variety of factors that influence and will influence Syria's cyber war. While constantly upholding the journalistic rigour of the subject matter.
The visual language approach aimed to reach a balance. Between establishing a strong brand identity that demonstrates the complexity and the ever changing factors of cyber war. while staying true to the investigative journalistic journey the user will take. Therefore it was important to create an accessible user journey while dealing with large amounts of content to allow the content to not only be engaging but also easily understood.
In visual journalism to unlock the potential of digital storytelling it's important to apply an understanding of information design. Which is what I aimed to do here. To allow the user journey and the breakdown of information to improve understanding of complex subject matter. Therefore it was essential to establish a consistent grid and using a variety of tools such as typography, layout, colour, iconography and gifs to create a positive user experience.
INTERACTIVE DOCUMENTARY LEAFLET
Pirate Fishing is a real life, interactive, illegal fishing investigation. A promotional leaflet was commissioned to demonstrated its unique perspective in allowing the viewer to engage in the investigation. It was showcased across film festivals inc. Sheffield Doc Fest.
In my final major project I chose to explore human anatomy as my subject matter, aiming to challenge the monotone visual language of scientific material. I chose to explore the skeletal system because it’s a fascinating structure that is both scientific and artistic.
This led to the formation of 206, presented as a medical manual it aims to communicate core bone information through the introduction of a visual system utilising the principles of information design.
ISTD 2014 PROTEST
In response to the ISTD 2014 Protest brief I chose a subject that required a new voice to speak on behalf of those who are under-represented whose human life is worth less in the eyes of society, they are the victims of strike drones.
This led me to produce a printed document that reveals both accounts of information released on strike drones across a period of 12 months. Highlighting the false authoritarian information released by US officials in contrast to the truth. Allowing the reader to question the false reality that is portrayed.
This project was awarded a pass by the International Society of Typographic Designers at the 2014 student assessment.

During my internship at Applied Wayfinding I contributed to a variety of projects with a focus on the upcoming Lusail City wayfinding system for Qatar 2022. I conducted intensive research on bilingual typography, Qatar and the region and establishing three key themes to be pitched to our client for both wayfinding and iconography. I also assisted in creating a variety of artwork from reports, mapping and vector work.
