The client had been with us for over 10 years. In that time we had built them numerous websites, filmed and created dozens of promotional videos, designed posters, leaflets and much more. When the client had an idea for the new 2020 Rising service they came to us at the inception to discuss it.

After a consultation we agreed to a new website, logo and accompanying collateral. Out of that consultation came the 2020 Rising concept that focuses on workshops for schools to help them better understand mental health and youth violence.

Portside was instrumental in bringing the concept to life. We conducted a wealth of competitor research to assist in the refining the proposition and to help convey the ideas more succinctly.


Logo design

We consulted with the client and over a number of weeks and presented them with various worksheets containing logo ideas. These were then discussed with the client, after which we settled on a specific route forward. Portside then took this 2020 Rising design through to completion. The final logo design subtly conveys the idea of rising upward to fit in with the concept of the proposition.

E-commerce web design

The primary focus for the website was on the service side. However, the client had written a number of publications that help inform the topics of the workshops. As a result we extended the functionality to be offer e-books and hard copy publications for purchase in conjunction with the workshops.

We agreed the best route forward was to build a small e-commerce section where the books could be purchased for immediate download or dispatched by post. We used the Woocommerce platform which fits seamlessly into WordPress.

Graphic design

In additional to the website and logo we also create a number of book covers for publications written by the client. The book covers were to be submitted to Amazon. As a result they had to adhere to specific content and size guidelines. Each cover used the same design principles with minor differences for the size, images, colours and text.
