My last position was as Design Manager at one of Melbourne’s top architecture design firms, John Wardle Architects (JWA) for 4 years. The position encompassed the stewardship of all things involved with the JWA brand from within the company itself.
I was responsible for JWA brand needs and worked across a number of teams including managing top tier external graphic design companies for various external branded items required by JWA. This allowed me to see the complex relationship between supplier and client, be involved with the client, discuss internally our immediate needs, act upon the requirements, push the supplier to answer the brief in a more responsible manner. Also while in the company I acted as a design lightening rod for advice and production internally, building branded screen and printed presentations, industry reports and major tender documents and collateral with the principals.
The management role also required my multimedia design knowledge to further JWA which included the delivery and launch of the new JWA website, developing and identifying potential emerging digital opportunities for the users. I led the project with an external web development company and design studio. Also during this time I delivered an internal Intranet with a independent programmer developer. We were able to identify the needs and opportunities within the company, extend on some of the services and deliver useful Intranet that helped employees to communicate better within the company.
My extensive experience in digital design strategy, branding and more recently responsive design and interaction design research strongly contributes to this position.
My experience in diverse design led roles in the corporate and education sector is delivering user focused digital strategy in multiple environments and situations. I have led a number of web campaigns to market and numerous programs of user testing, wire-framing for client and supplier for beta testing. I have implemented strong simple design relevant to the technology and client use.
