Cardiff employee’s have their say!

Our Brief was to design the Cardiff Employee Survey, a report that presents the findings from a research project conducted by Cardiff Business School and Cardiff Business Partnership, examining employees’ perceptions of Cardiff as a place to work and asked them what they wanted from the city in the future. Cardiff Business School asked Black Sheep to design a report that communicates the needs of those individuals surveyed, quickly, clearly & effectively to business leaders.

Our Solution:
Deciphering the information contained in graphs and charts can be difficult as well as navigating through it. We created a document that illustrates its findings as well as traditionally telling the story.

Where the reader can clearly identify the key messages without necessarily having to read the whole report.

Adopting a less formal, graphic approach to the report, we used large magazine style pull-outs for key facts, with iconic symbols representing the issues identified. Our main aim was to clearly place the emphasis on engaging the target audience, who are time poor.

Impact/Feedback:
Since the reports launch, it has been widely reported through TV, Radio and online media encouraging debate on it’s findings.

‘It’s great – we’re really pleased and it’s going to a lot of large companies and organisations in Cardiff, so I hope it brings you some work too! – Everyone who has seen it has been really impressed!’ Laura Davies of the Business School.

Raising awareness in the Welsh Beef and Diary Sectors

BVD is recognised throughout Europe as one of the most important viral diseases of cattle. Hybu Cig Cymru / Meat Promotion Wales asked Black Sheep to produce their recent publication ‘A focus on BDD & Johne’s’. The aim of this booklet is to raise awareness of these two diseases across the whole of the Welsh beef and dairy sectors and encourage testing for the diseases through a health scheme approach.

Here’s what the client said.

More Info:

Animal disease has a severe effect on productivity and profitability of cattle and impacts adversely on animal welfare.
Control and prevention of disease will improve productivity. Improving the health status of herds provides sources of disease free stock which creates export opportunities and raises the profile of the Welsh Beef industry.

This booklet focuses on two diseases that are costly to, and should be tackled by, the industry.
BVD – Bovine Viral Diarrhoea
Johne’s Disease

For the second year running, Black Sheep have produced the Sports Council for Wales’ Annual Report and Accounts and Good Practice document.

As the Sports Council exists to promote sport and physical activity as part of everyday life, we wanted to produce a concept that conveyed that ethos.

We came up with a graphical representation of time. 1 year, 12 months and 365 days of sport in Wales, since the last report was published. A second document highlights the momentum achieved in the last year, with case studies of individuals and organisations, from elite athletes to lunchtime walking clubs.

Black Sheep have consistently produced creatively challenging concepts that convey our message effectively.’
Adam Fairbank, Senior Marketing Officer. Sports Council for Wales

Spread the love

A little praise goes a long way, especially when most clients aren’t usually forthcoming with it. After 15 years in the industry I still get a buzz from this kind of feedback, it’s a great morale boost for the whole studio. So thanks Jon, it really made our day.

I took delivery yesterday of the Breathe Swansea, brochures and have to say that the brochure is one of the nicest jobs, both in terms of design and print that we’ve ever produced, it looks absolutely great. I’ll send some samples in the post.

As it’s fully in compliance with Welsh Language best practice guidelines I think it would be worth entering into the Language Board’s bilingual design awards.

Thanks again, Jon

‘That’s great; the more I see the design, the more I love it. Thanks Neil.’

That’s what ‘James Vilares, Widening Access Officer, Cardiff University’ said about our recently completed brochure aimed at 14-17 year olds, who wouldn’t normally be contemplating a higher education.
