WEstjustice provides free legal services for communities in Melbourne's West. I worked with Studio Yardbird and the WEstjustice Employment Law team to develop a series of informative brochures. The brochures assist members of the community (particularly those with English as a second language) to understand complex employment law concepts, their available options and next steps.
Each brochure focusses on one common employment challenge – underpayment, sham contracting, discrimination, sexual harassment and termination. Illustrations were made hero and simple design and information hierarchy was implemented to ensure clear and effective communication.
The brochures were created in collaboration with WEstjustice and community leaders. Workshops enabled us to define the characters (Boss, Lawyer, Judge etc), illustration style, use of colour, and balance of visual and written information. With early wireframes we tested the effectiveness and refined the layout and content.
