BSA Annual Report
I was tasked with concept building to illustrate the Building Societies Association's annual report, suggesting that financial products could be viewed as physical 'products' with real-world qualities.
Taking this creative theme literally, I designed and built a series of cardboard 'packages' for each 'product' to support the text.

Creating effective, well-designed and coherent design solutions for complicated product lines with multiple assets, text material and technical specifications can be challenging. Saddler, a based in Hong Kong luxury leather goods designer and wholesaler needed easy-to-edit and update print and digital catalogues and global sales support material that made sense of a large, multi-product range with distinct heritage, evolving colour pallets and a complex fulfilment and logistics strategy.
I needed to be able to understand the product and profile of the brand from an initial brief, work remotely and independently with little direction and quickly build an effective working design system from scratch.
