Poorly-written messaging undermines the government’s work. Proofreading and copyediting play an essential part in building public trust. In this blog we discuss the differences between these processes and how you can benefit from them.
At Design102, we’re humbled to be continuing our season of success with a place on the shortlist for the 2020 Digital Communication Awards! This is how we created an award-worthy entry.
The Inside Out Awards recognise outstanding in-house creative teams, so as the government’s in-house design service, we thought we’d enter some of our projects and people. Now the shortlist’s out, find out which awards we’re up for.
Peter Rainey, Design102 MD, discusses the importance of tackling discrimination. At Design102, our actions range from increased education and having uncomfortable conversations to listening, understanding and restating our commitment to building a truly inclusive workplace.
Digital Communications Awards celebrate brands, campaigns and innovations that lead the way in online communications across the world. We entered our ‘Journey to GCHQ’ campaign – but did we win? Learn how we fared against an incredible 6,000 other applicants.
At Design102, we strive to design comprehensively, considerately and effectively. Explore colour vision deficiency and learn our design ‘top tips’ for colour blind awareness and how to design for the inclusive requirements of a diverse audience.
Over the past year, Design102 have been animating more than ever before. Our new animation showreel highlights some of the projects and styles we’ve worked on – and it’s a good source of inspiration too.
Follow the process we used to create the engaging ‘rich picture’ visual illustration of smarter working scenarios and principles within the Civil Service. Also view the short animated film we created, featuring those illustrated scenes, to further expand on details.
Recruiting ex-offenders can change lives. Ministry of Justice asked us to showcase a success story from the Education and Employment Strategy, to encourage businesses to hire and train ex-offenders. Learn how our designs helped challenge myths around hiring ex-offenders.
Thoughtful design is essential when dealing with a sensitive topic. Ministry of Justice called for responses to a government consultation on laws around coroners investigating stillbirths. Here, we discuss the social media assets we created to support the consultation.
