Through my work I have consistently sought to engage with the viewer on an emotional level, to draw them into a narrative that leaves them asking questions.

Planet for Tomorrow is an audio series hosted by sustainability advocates, covering a range of environmental topics, such as fast fashion and food waste. Each episode delves into practical solutions that can be easily incorporated into our everyday routines.

The show’s branding incorporates aerial imagery of our planet, with the aim to visualise the magnitude and significance of our collective actions. A distinctive landscape is associated with each host, creating a new identity for every episode. To emphasise the need for progress, a futuristic typeface and symbols are employed.

These designs have resulted in a total of 14 pieces of coverage to date, including mentions in The Independent and Podcasting Today. The launch on social media achieved 117,860 impressions and an engagement rate of 12.16%.

A new way to stay informed is coming. Introducing Rio, the leading AI for fact-checked news, brought to you by Curio, the award-winning journalism app.

Every day, Rio delves into top newspapers and magazines, meticulously selecting the news that truly matters to you. Rio curates articles from leading publications like the Financial Times and the Washington Post, along with compelling reads from sources such as The Atlantic.

As a result of the launch of the product demo video on Product Hunt, the company tripled the number of sign-ups in less than a week. The video was also presented live at SXSW, the cutting-edge conference in Austin, and was very well received by the audience.

Remarkable journalism is brought to life by iconic voices. In this podcast series, you will find extraordinary stories about real people retold by your favorite celebrities.

The branding centers around the essence of journalism, with a distinctive design journey for each story. Hand-picked typography and animated titles are used to complement the narrative, creating immersive and personal episodes.

The campaign unfolds in two phases: intriguing teasers that challenge listeners to identify the celebrity narrators, followed by the launch assets that draw the listener into the heart of the story.

After the launch, web visits increased by 2 to 3 times compared to previous releases. The episode featuring James McAvoy won Silver at The Lovie Awards 2023.

Gillian Anderson is an acclaimed actress in film, television, and theatre. In her personal audio series, she narrates and delves into a wide range of human stories, shedding light on lesser-known tales about remarkable women, social challenges, and sexual liberation. The series encourages listeners to question their current knowledge but also invites them to embark on a journey of self-discovery.

Visual design and animations serve as visual components to enhance the narrative and depth of each story.
