Devon Young Carers

Devon Carers, the organisation I work with regularly have been working on a new campaign to encourage carers to have a Health and Wellbeing Check. It’s been ongoing with the Carers for a while, but the Young Carers wanted to roll out a slightly different version with their own branding…

I changed the typefaces and colours to match the DYC branding, and also made the layout a little better for younger people to read and use. The imagery on the front and back was also changed to reflect the audience a little better, and to make the whole thing a bit more positive and friendly for the younger audience.

New Work – Money Matters

With this quarter’s Devon Carers Link Newsletter, Devon’s carers received a “Money Matters” booklet. I was asked to produce this booklet for CVS and Britannia as a quick guide to handling finances. It accompanies a set of courses being run by Exeter CVS for Devon’s carers, helping the with things like debt, borrowing money, paying bills and tax.

I used a similar illustration on the back, using the colours that I used throughout the booklet.

Each article of the booklet uses a different colour to differentiate, with a headline bar in colour and the type reversed out:


I tried to break up the information as much as possible by using tables and blocks of colour to aid the reader to find the information they need, and make the data easier to read.

Blocks of colour and coloured text

Each article took one page of the booklet, in an attempt to keep the information edited, and to help boost interest in the courses and the website.

I used the colour coding in the contents at the beginning of the booklet too:
