Air Pollution: The Invisible Killer

UHC were commissioned by Keith Taylor, Green MEP, to design and produce Air Pollution: The Invisible Killer. Principally a cartography project, the task resulted in the production of an illustrated large format fold out pamphlet with its own political agenda; the reduction of particulate matter leading to the improvement of public health across South East England.

An original constituency map and accompanying key were created by UHC. Surrounding illustrations depict silhouetted figures set against a backdrop of urban infrastructure, onset by air pollution.

The publication was launched by Keith Taylor across Southampton, one of the South East’s most polluted cities. It’s now being used as a tool to raise awareness of this growing public health crisis.

Sports Lab

Design studio 24 offer a create and make service specialising in the manufacture of physical materials for the museum and gallery sector. The collective turned to UHC for input into Sports Lab, an exhibition with a focus on sports science, curated by Museums Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University.

Designing with the physical exhibition space in mind, eye-catching imagery was sourced from the Centre for Sports Engineering Research at Sheffield Hallam University.

Visual content was produced with a combination of environmental chambers and non-contact laser scanning software, typically used for the analysis and testing of new sports technologies.

Our designers went on to create promotional materials for Sports Lab, including leaflets, posters, and large format outdoor advertising prints. Our work culminated in the production of graphics that adorned a variety of bespoke exhibition elements.

Stratum

UHC’s Stratum postcard promoted a site specific installation by artist Susie MacMurray; a blanket of white duck down feathers, situated within the attic space at Islington Mill, Salford.

In response to MacMurray’s artwork, UHC experimented with transparent sans-serif typefaces, photography, and uncoated papers, resulting in an A6 postcard with a delicate, light aesthetic, cost-effectively printed in a single colour.

Contact’s Creative Experts

Contact asked UHC to develop a brochure to promote their recently established team of young facilitators, Contact’s Creative Experts. The team work with cultural and third sector organisations to provide tailored workshops, interactive seminars, and motivational speaking.

Considering the varied working environments that might be encountered by Contact’s Creative Experts, UHC recommended the implementation of an eye-catching and easily recognisable brand. Strong visuals would work to aid facilitators in the establishment of an instantly recognisable presence at location specific workshop.

A bespoke stencil typeface and a vibrant magenta colour scheme were devised and applied throughout the brochure. UHC subsequently reinforced this branding with the creation of additional promotional materials, including business cards, screen-printed sketchbooks, and t-shirts.

All of our screen-printed products made use of only high quality water based inks. No transfers, no PVC or phthalates, and no solvents.

Carbon Map

Platform and the Transport Planning Society jointly turned to UHC when looking to commission an illustrated map that would depict existing global carbon trade routes, fossil fuel production, existing consumption levels, and the ways in which these factors impact on the integrity of the global environmental.

As an alternative to the vector based data-graphic, UHC created a physical map of the world using recycled materials, hand-crafted miniature objects, pyrotechnics, photography, and a touch of CGI.

Large format prints of the finished work are housed at the Transport Planning Society’s London headquarters, and at Greenpeace UK’s offices in Canonbury Villas.
