BBC Children in Need

Take a look at my work for the BBC charity which has raised over £1 billion since it started in 1970.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable few months working for BBC Children in Need with many many highlights.  During my time at the charity as a social media assistant, I created a wide range of digital-first content, reaching over 500,000 people daily.

 

Predominantly using Adobe Photoshop, Premiere and After Effects to design dynamic, visually rich content, I assisted on promoting a number of sub-campaigns, including the BBC Countryfile Ramble, The One Show's Rickshaw Challenge and the virtual Duck Race Sweepstake.

Filming at Wembley Arena was another highlight, as I captured behind the scenes content at BBC Children in Need Rocks, subsequently tweeted by BBC One's official Twitter account. I also aided our talented design team in fulfilling briefs to satisfy corporate partners, including Asda, Boots and Greggs.

Working on the annual Duck Race Sweepstake, however, was on another level. Executing the lower-third motion graphic leaderboards was a real challenge but one I particularly enjoyed.

Designing promotional material for the Duck Race was satisfying too, creating Instagram stories and other graphics to draw in an audience, which helped raise over £275,000 for the charity. It was an amazing project to be a part of - you can watch it below (mobile users should click here).

My three months at BBC Children in Need was incredibly challenging but also extremely rewarding. It was very surreal to be working for an organisation which has now raised over £1 billion for disadvantaged young people across the UK. I'd like to thank everyone who supported me whilst I was there.
