New Policy Connect report design: Carbon Monoxide safety
Launching today at the House of Lords: the new report for the All-Party Parliamentary Carbon Monoxide Group, part of our ongoing series of Policy Connect report design work.
How to design striking graphics for a report which concerns the dangers of an invisible gas did fox us for a moment, I don’t mind admitting.
However, as with all the best things, the look of the piece came to life when someone had a tangential random idea and mentioned that sheet of dangerous objects you aren’t allowed to take on planes which is on a check-in desk at the airport…
The report focusses on changing the behaviour of a variety of differing groups to ensure more awareness of the dangers of Carbon Monoxide. So for each group (the fire service, for instance) or topic (the largely unknown dangers of careless barbecue use at campsites) featured, we designed an pictogram… and so the whole project came to life.
Two feature pages which act as dividing sections in the report.
Introduction page using the icons in a different way.
A one-off design explaining the correct use of a Carbon Monoxide alarm.
FEEDBACK FOR THE LATEST POLICY CONNECT REPORT DESIGN
We’re also blushing a bit at some of the feedback on social media…
