Creating an informative, concise safety briefing to British rail infrastructure staff.
As part of an long term project with Derby based ISS Labour, I was commissioned to develop a briefing document for internal use. The company had previously collated and emailed the information in a Word document, distributed to their various branches and team leaders for further dissemination to the coal face staff.
Currently enjoying a period of fast expansion, ISS were looking to add a layer of professionalism to the recurring document in order to better relay the important safety information. There was an additional desire to expand the document to cover company based training opportunities, staff initiatives and general news.
We set about creating a magazine style document that could be sent via email and printed off on location for staff. The goal was to create an attractive formal safety briefing that staff wanted to read with valuable information and opportunities.
With little existing design to work from I developed the magazine design in it’s entirety from the “Safety First” brand to the the documents look and feel.
The briefing is loosely split into two with vital safety updates, accident information and key actionable elements requiring clear and easy to read pages with a second less formal company news element following this pattern but with more scope for visual decoration.

On a 600gsm stock my business cards are fabulous, really sturdy and thick, they also have a great feel to the finish. They also feature some of my fave projects to make a pocket portfolio!
When the ReST vulnerability hit the news, I was happy that my hosted websites were already safe.
At some point in the discussion of a new branding project, the client will almost always ask what files they expect to receive. At first, I found this an odd query, although perfectly valid, my assumption was alway that I’d supply every file they’d need, why would I design a logo and do anything less?
