Developed a content strategy focussing on impact-led storytelling such as ‘What will it take to get cleaner city air?’ and ‘How do we find new ways of challenging accent bias?’ Found new and newsworthy relevance for complex and important research.
Created a new, conceptual visual identity for Queen Mary University’s research to unite campaign content. Each Research Highway had a different photographic ident, such as a fish swimming through water and a helix model. These combined to create a hero visual, showing the University’s breadth of research coming together.
Partnered with Times Higher Education (THE) to create a sponsored thought leadership hub and double page advertorial spread, with paid promotion across THE channels, as well as sponsored articles distributed at scale through TAN Media’s publisher network, including New Scientist, TIME and Associated Press.
