With increasing numbers travelling on DART / Commuter services, customers with specific needs, such as mobility issues and pregnant women, need to be given priority access to seats. We were tasked with designing a print campaign for the DART to highlight this. My idea was to shame people in a fun way, using the line ‘Don’t be an Ass. Give up your seat.’ And using social media to back up the print campaign.
Originally trained in classical animation, I fell sideways into digital advertising in 2006 while working in a small agency. I landed happily though, picking up quite up a few awards during my digital years. Now I would love to stretch my conceptual abilities and art direction skills in new ways. I applied for Upstarts to test myself against more varied briefs and have really enjoyed dragging inspiration out of unexpected sources.
