CD is 4

It’s now four years since I set up Collier Design and started freelancing. 

This past year I've continued to work with Lloyds Banking Group as well as working with new clients, including POKE London and Weir+Wong.

The focus with Lloyds Banking Group has been on developing new digital products for customers of the group's three main brands, Lloyds Bank, Halifax and Bank of Scotland.

In February and March, I also worked with the talented team at POKE London on Orange's sponsorship of UEFA Euro 2016 and a project for UBS.

And from April to June, I was also lucky enough to hook up with Andy Weir and Robin Wong, who I used to work with at Agency Republic, to brand and design a new web experience for a personal development and training startup.

Roll on Year 5...

Orange Sponsors You

While working with POKE London earlier this year, I was part of the design team which worked on Orange's sponsorship campaign of UEFA Euro 2016.

I was particularly involved in the design of the visualisation measuring social media activity for each team. This is displayed on the campaign website and on the big screens in the fan park in Paris. The team with the most positive support over the course of the day has their country's flag projected onto the Eiffel Tower during a light show each evening. This has formed the backdrop to several broadcaster's studio coverage, including the BBC. 

The idea behind the campaign, which includes other elements such as a Fan of the Day competition, is to hero the supporters as the most important part of the championships.

Working with POKE and Weir+Wong

Since returning from paternity leave earlier this year, I've been lucky enough to work with POKE London and Weir+Wong on a number of projects.

For POKE, I worked on Orange's sponsorship of UEFA Euro 2016 and a project for Swiss bank UBS.

I'm now currently working with Weir+Wong, teaming up with my former Agency Republic colleague Andy Weir to brand and design a new online experience for a personal development and training startup.

Available for new projects

After a long paternity break, it's now time to take on some new projects. If you have any ideas, projects or opportunities you'd like to discuss, I'd love to hear from you.

Introducing Joshua

On Christmas Eve, my wife Annie and I had our first baby... Joshua. He's already turned our world upside down, but it's been worth every minute. 

The last month has been a bit of a blur, so I'm sorry if you've tried to contact me regarding work and I've not got back to you as quickly as I would have liked, but hopefully you can understand.
