From the Story Garden.

Yukari Ono and I collaborated with Make @ Story Garden and Global Generation in the development of a visual language and brand/identity for this London-based community outreach initiative. The campaign, headed by a small public garden centred in the Kings Cross area, was launched as a response to the COVID-19 lockdown. The initiative aimed to bring the garden into the homes of vulnerable families; providing light entertainment and healthy exercises.

With thanks to Yukari Ono (Co-Designer), Georgia Jacob, Martina Mina and Kiloran O’Leary.
