The Council on Foreign Relations was planning a series of meetings in Belfast. They aimed to address several issues left unresolved in Northern Ireland’s 1998 peace accords, and create a report outlining concrete steps towards more secure peace.
They wanted to have community input in advance of the meetings, and asked me to create a site to gather opinions from Ireland’s 1.8 million citizens. The deadline: two weeks.
I worked up a simple logotype and modern layouts to convey the authority of the Panel. Landscape photography (carefully researched to be free of partisan symbolism) carried the emotional impact.
Design & Development
I customized a responsive Squarespace theme, polishing the visual identity as I went. A secure form gathered ideas into a protected spreadsheet for review, and matching Facebook and Twitter pages allowed further communication and interaction with communities.
