These are a few of our favourite things.

Recently, one of our colleagues, Jordan Clarke, completed a stunning set of work for Parramatta City Council’s “Our City Your Say” which “enables residents, business owners and workers and visitor to have a say about issues that impact them, and their community. Members take part in regular online and in-person consultations and help the Council understand the community’s views.”

Having worked with Parramatta Council previously on the “Pop Up Parramatta” project designing WordPress Websites for Artists, and knowing how amazing Jordan’s work is, we were excited to see what magic Jordan could come up with. Fun Fact: Chicago Bulls.

Jordan started the massive task by working through concepts and colour charts and decided to use an Isometric style to explain a set of survey results Our City Your Say had collected in a manner that was exciting and engaging for a younger audience, and as you can see from the images below, the results are awesome.

For the header of each sheet, Jordan created an Isometric map of Parramatta which included some landmarks across the city such as the Parramatta Town Hall, the Parramatta Ferry Wharf, the entrance to Parramatta Park and the cities Eat Street to name but a few.

The main area of each sheet was then used to explain the results of the surveys in a way that was interesting enough for people to actually read them (we all know how boring straight figures can be).

A fantastic self contained design (diorama or sorts) was created to match each of the surveys answers and then each of the designs were joined together with a road – a great way to have continuity across the overall design and also draw your eyes across and down each block of text. This also kept an element of whimsy with the characters traversing the road between each section.

There are approx 12 designs Jordan has created, with each design being released periodically across the Our City Your Say Instagram and Facebook pages, and we cant wait to see how they all turned out, so if you also want to keep in touch with Jordans amazing work on this project, head across to her blog for the latest.
