When I'm not on one of my adventures, playing in my are journal, or blogging, I work as a graphic designer and web content specialist for the Diocese of Manchester. One of my favorite assignments is to overhaul brochures, flyers, and take dull reports and make them engaging. Pictured here is one of my recent projects, a brochure for parents on talking with children about abuse. (click photo to enlarge)
So often important information is lost if the layout doesn't use colors and images to catch the reader's attention. (click photo to enlarge)
Although a topic like child abuse is very sensitive, it doesn't have to be dull. I worked with stock photography and found examples like the one above of a confident parent talking with her child. (click photo to enlarge)
Back in April for Child Abuse Prevention Month, I took statistics, tips, and guidelines and transformed them from black and white text only reports to colorful and engaging infographics.
One of my strengths is taking a lot of information from various sources and organizing it in a clear, creative, and engaging way that grabs the readers' attention and motivates them. The key is to simply the message. I had so much fun creating these infographics.
I'll be sharing more from my graphic design portfolio in the weeks to come.
