We led the design of a social marketing campaign to help prevent the uptake of smoking by young Aboriginal people in metropolitan Adelaide.

User centred website design

Client: Brand Orange 

The Social Deck was recently engaged by NSW based not-for-profit organisation, Brand Orange, to create a new brand identity through the design and development of a new website. The purpose of the new website is to promote businesses in the region and as a customer facing website to attract people to visit, move to or invest in Orange. We took a user-centred design approach where we sought to understand the motivations and desires of the target audience so we could best design an engaging and enjoyable experience for users.

Crowdfunding for photo journalism in Afghanistan

Client: Razistan 

We were approached by New York based non-profit Razistan seeking a creative PR and marketing campaign to launch an online platform to showcase never before seen before photo essays from freelance photojournalists in Afghanistan. We worked with the organisation to create a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter with the aim of securing the seed funding required to launch the platform. We created a campaign blog and used social media marketing to create buzz around the campaign, which resulted in significant coverage in mainstream media including The New Yorker and Huffington Post. The Kickstarter campaign exceeded its funding target of $12,000 and the Razistan online platform was created with contributions from leading international photojournalists.
