A whimsical call to vote for the student population in Manchester Fallowfield.

Yes, I am part of the #GreenSurge. I joined in December 2014 and am an active member for the Manchester Green Party. Apart from the many policies I agree with, I feel I actually have a voice within the party, find that it is democratically run and meet many very engaged, awake and politically astute people.

The fact that smaller parties, a number of them leaning to the left, are shaking up this election in the UK is a good thing and locally it would be good to have a different voice in the Labour run Manchester Council.

Currently my daily physical exercise is leafleting for an hour or so in Rusholme and I must say, responses from people I meet on the street are mostly very encouraging. A lot of my time is spent with fellow activists planning leaflets and other publications and then offering my design skills. Enclosed some work I have done.

Attractive bright colours.

The Research and Development Department of Greater Manchester West Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust (GMW) needed highly visible and recognisable promotional material to invite service users in the North West to access and be involved in mental health research. They provided us with the “FAIR”campaign logo and asked my design studio to develop an A3 poster and a 6-page DL flyer. They were not just very happy with the design results, but also appreciated that we were able to handle their print management for 70,000 flyers very costeffectively.

The DL flyer has a perforation on one side for service users to tear off  the card and hand it to GMW.

A spread from the little book about artworking and creative artworking.

Well, it took ages to actually sit down and attempt to put 25 years of experience as an artworker, creative artworker and graphic designer on to some page. This is the humble beginning and functions as a portfolio for the artworking bit. Instead of showing all the brochures, magazines, flyers or complex marketing pieces I am going a bit more into the process… way more interesting… and funny. The design portfolio will follow soon.

Click here to download the low res version (sorry, still 4.4 MB) of the portfolio. Have patience, it might take some time to upload in your browser: Astrid_Johnson_Artwork_Lowres.pdf

To download the high res version in all its glory: Astrid_Johnson_Artwork_Highres.pdf

And for good measure and if you are actually need some work done, here my CV.
