Met Éireann (on behalf of the Irish Government) were shortlisted for the voting stage of the competition to host the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts’ EU funded activities. The shortlisting of Ireland’s bid represented the recognition of Ireland’s significant potential to support a world leading research centre in weather, climate and earth system science.
We were proud to work alongside Met Éireann to design an online brochure for this project which highlighted Ireland’s bid to locate the ECMWF’s European HQ in Cherrywood, Dublin. We wanted the design of this brochure to easily guide the reader through while clearly highlighting the key points on each page. We achieved this through the use of engaging high-resolution imagery and alternative text placement. The final result was an impactful 60-page brochure with vibrant high-resolution imagery used throughout.
In addition to the brochure, we were delighted to design and develop a supporting webpage. This webpage was designed to reflect the style of the brochure and included additional videos highlighting Irelands bid as well as a detailed look at the proposed office building in Cherrywood, Dublin.
In order to assist in engaging the user we created a series of micro animations throughout the webpage. These micro animations included content transitions and reveals. This helped in creating a more dynamic design rather than being flat and static.
