Sept 2015: An 80 page A5 book produced by Catherine Charnock Creative for the 2015 Congress of the European Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ESGCT), in collaboration with the Finnish Society for Gene Therapy (FSGT). The congress was held in Helsinki and for the design we took inspiration from the city and its design icons including Alvar Aalto and Marimekko. The emphasis was on fun, colourful, minimalist design to create an engaging and eye catching programme book. The book was perfect bound and printed in Helsinki.
In addition to the Programme Book, we designed a lot of other materials including display banners, web banners, outdoor signage, invitations, as well as the cover for the Congress’s Abstracts Book (see image below).
Nov 2014: 80 page conference programme book for the European Society of Gene and Cell Therapy’s annual conference, which was held in collaboration with the Dutch Society of Gene and Cell Therapy in October 2014. The A5 book contains the full conference programme and also a shorter programme at a glance, as well as information about sponsors and their advertisements, and visiting The Hague. This project is a technical challenge, as the book contains a lot of cross-references and there are changes to the programme right up until the last minute. It was printed on FSC certified paper, with a gloss laminated outer cover and perfect binding.
Apr 14: The European Society of Gene and Cell Therapy needed a publicity document that they could send by email to present and prospective members, as well as sponsors and advertisers.
I chose a shape that would be easily viewed on screens, tablets and hand held devices, limiting the text on each screen for maximum legibility and impact.
The vector drawings (grey and yellow watermarks) are ones that I created as part of the ESGCT brand.
The document also makes for a good powerpoint presentation.

Nov 13: I designed a family of materials for the University of Oxford’s Faculty of Law. The initial design was for an exhibition stand measuring 2100mm x 800mm, with a detachable white arrow. This design was later adapted for use on posters. I also designed three table stands to go with it, and a flag for use outside the building. (Click on the images for a closer look).
Oct 2013: Just finished! 112 page A5 book for European Society of Gene and Cell Therapy’s annual conference, in collaboration with the Spanish Society. I designed the book, which contains the conference programme, advertisements from sponsors, lots of sponsors logos, exhibitors maps etc. I also drew the little drawings you see at the bottom of each page, (these drawings were also used on the cover illustration for the Abstracts book). The book was printed in Spain by a local printer, using 100% recycled paper, a gloss laminate cover and perfect binding.
Oct 2013: Banners to hang in the streets of Madrid! Advertising the 2013 ESGCT and Spanish Society’s joint conference.
Oct 2013: Cover design for Abstracts Book for European Society of Gene and Cell Therapy’s Annual Conference, this year held in collaboration with the Spanish Society. I used my hand drawn motifs to create pattern brushes and swatches in Illustrator, and combined them to create a composite image of a dendritic cell. Fun!
April 2013: 12 page A4 booklet for International Law Association British Branch Conference, hosted by University of Oxford. The work was done in a quick turnaround, and printed by Oxuniprint. I sourced the cover image online, and the back cover advert was provided by Oxford University Press.
November 2012: Front cover for ESGCT Abstracts Book. I used the diagrammes I had drawn for the conference book (see this post) to create a this composite image of a DNA strand. Fun!! (Click on the image for a closer look).
The bulk of the inside pages (the scientific abstracts) came from a journal company in America. However, I designed the front and back cover, added some advertisements from sponsors, and the list of delegates at the back.
November 2012: 100 page conference book for the European Society of Gene and Cell Therapy. To add visual interest, I drew lots of diagrammes relating to gene therapy (vectors, cells, DNA strands etc.), which were used at the bottom of each page to differentiate the different sections of the book. I also used these drawings to create a composite drawing for the cover of the Abstract Book (see this post). The book was printed by Seacourt Press and perfect bound with gloss laminated cover.
