With Hexibit, I worked on the #forgetthestigma awareness campaign for the Alzheimer Society of Ireland. This campaign features Helen and Kathy, who both have Alzheimer’s disease, and Sean Donal, who is a carer for his mother.
I worked on Ashoka’s changing society for good with Red & Grey Design, who collaborated with Barbara Hoffman at ba-ho.com.
Here’s a taster. If you want to see more, the entire campaign is up on this Ashoka site.
I was the copywriter on PIVOTDublin, the bid by Dublin City Council to become World Design Capital 2014. There were 52 applications and the Dublin bid made the shortlist. It went on to win the Institute of Designers of Ireland Outstanding Contribution to Design in Ireland Award.
