How I See (RNIB Campaign)
How I See is a community-led campaign that explores this spectrum of sight loss. The poster and interactive filter book shows the four main eye conditions. The creative team worked closely with the in-house eye health team, along with the printing company, to make sure the filters simulated the eye conditions correctly. These were then distributed across the UK to the likes of schools, offices and community groups.
Spark and Netflix Partnership
Spark is one of New Zealand’s largest telecommunications and digital services companies. Spark announced their partnership with Netflix in February 2017. This creative was applied to instore POS, along with packaging, billboards and bus backs. Both Spark and Netflix brand guidelines, and correct use of imagery had to be considered when designing these.
Dishy Flake Salt
Being provided with the flake salt and a bit of background about the product, the task of turning this into a sellable product started. This involved sourcing packaging options, doing costings and marketing the product. The jar protects the delicate salt flakes and can be used on a dining table to be crushed and sprinkled onto food. The sleeve gives the illusion the product is gift wrapped, making it a popular product for kitchen and giftware stores.
RNIB’s Christmas Card
RNIB needed a corporate Christmas card to distribute across the UK. It was important the card met RNIB’s accessibility standards but was also delightful for people with standard vision. The sand like texture and subtle sparkle of the glitter reflected the theme of snow and went beyond the standard Christmas card. The card was so popular, staff members were asking to purchase the card to send to their friends and family.

Handmade Cabinet Graphic
Haydn approached Maddie with the brief to create a design that would be sandblasted onto the glass of a handmade wooden entertainment cabinet and china cabinet. As these cabinets were very special to Haydn and his family he wanted the design on the glass to tell part of their family story. Haydn and his family were overwhelmed with the result and have said that “to say that these pieces of furniture are one of a kind and custom to us is an understatement.”
Stacey is a photographer based in Melbourne, Australia, who focuses on portraiture and has a keen interest in styled shoots and fashion. She wanted a logo that would be a clean, crisp design that was fashion related and incorporated a star. Inspiration came from Architecture, the architecture of clothing, sewing patterns and spirographs to create a logo that fitted Stacey’s brief.
Photography and Catalogue Design
Dishy Enamelware was one of Rogers Homewares best selling products. After expanding the range, a stand alone Dishy Enamelware catalogue was required. The photoshoot became a large part of the catalogue and shows how versatile the enamelware can be.

Spark Business Magazine
Spark is one of New Zealand’s largest telecommunications and digital services companies. Spark Business Discover is a monthly magazine for new and existing Spark Business customers. In July 2016 Spark rebranded. From this came some new challenges which were overcome within a tight time frame.
“Sim-specs” – spectacles which simulate different eye conditions – were developed for people to briefly experience seeing the world through the eyes of someone living with sight loss. Like other RNIB projects, the process of developing these meant working closely with the eye health team and printing company to ensure the filters represented the eye conditions correctly.
