Between late 2014 and Summer 2015, I worked closely with Beki Adam. Beki was running as an independent candidate in the 2015 general election for the Mid-Sussex area.
Beki required a designer and marketing assistant to design the visuals for her campaign. I acted as admin support and the primary designer for her ‘Vote ADAM’ campaign and created many vector-based art pieces using InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop.
First Postal Flyer
The first flyer I worked on was a duo-fold A4, 4 page document. 10,000 of these flyers were printed and distributed around the Mid-Sussex area. I used a combination of Adobe software and mapping software QGIS to design this flyer.
Second Postal Flyer
Distributed by the Royal Mail to every household in the Mid-Sussex region including Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath and East Grinstead. These flyers were printed and distributed by post to the 49,500 residents of the area.
I worked on a simple design for printed correx boards to be attached to wooden poles for placing in visible public areas. The design had to be bold and with a clear message.
We managed to secure placement for a billboard for the Vote ADAM campaign across 2 separate weeks in the lead up to the May 7th 2015 election. The billboard was placed outside Haywards Heath train station and was in direct sight of commuters and passersby for 2 weeks.
Digital Press Pack for Third-Parties
One of my first jobs for the campaign was to produce a press pack for third-parties which contained all logos in a variety of colours and transparencies (for both web and print). I also included campaign fonts and colour codes (in Hex and CMYK) to ensure correct use of the campaign materials.
Outdoor Roll Up PVC Banner
To accompany Beki to public speaking events, we created a standing outdoor banner which displayed key information about the campaign.
I was also responsible for speaking to press as well as answering emails and the questions of potential voters during the campaign.
During my free time, I wrote and submitted a Wikipedia entry on Beki’s behalf.
