Working with The Literary Platform Collective for The Reading Agency, our brief was to create a visual journey through Library 21 that would support their conversations with partners, developers and funders.
Our work included:
- Creating use cases and user journeys based on the findings in the report
- Commissioning illustrations of the user journeys including key elements of the user experience and the environment
- Creating an infographic that presented key data included in the report
- Working with TLP to publish these – together with their drawings of technical schema and key system interfaces – as a coherent narrative, which we did using the Creatavist platform

Founded in 1988 as the successor to The Welsh Review (1939-1948), Dock Leaves and The Anglo-Welsh Review (1949-1987), New Welsh Review is Wales’s foremost literary magazine in English.
After undertaking an initial consultancy exercise funded by the Welsh Books Council into the options for digital publishing that would work best for NWR, we designed and built a new website for New Welsh Review, which uses WordPress and WooCommerce to allow them to sell books, magazines and subscriptions – with subscribers also receiving access to an extensive archive of online articles, and a library of digital back issues delivered via our partner Circular Software’s Masterplan system.
The site also acts as the home for the New Welsh Writing Awards, and as a submissions portal for non-fiction, short fiction and poetry.
Microsite for The Life of Music, by Nicholas Kenyon, published by Yale University Press.
“From pianist Myra Hess’s performances in Blitz-ravaged London to John Adams’s composition for mourners of New York’s 9/11 attacks to Italian opera stars singing from their balconies amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, Kenyon argues that, no matter how great the crisis, music has the power to bring us together.”
