RHIANNON BASSETT

I'm a creative and passionate young woman who lives in the windy city of Wellington. I am a qualified designer, developer and writer. I hold Diplomas in Graphics and Multimedia, Website Development and Digital Media. I grew up in a world of constantly changing technology so I'm always learning and adapting. I love combining various forms of media to create successful and profound experiences. I believe that media and design is a powerful form of expression that is full of possibility. I also happen to be a geek, green tea enthusiast, perfume collector, audiophile, bibliophile, garlic lover, scotch drinker and TV buff.

  MY WORK  

Explore, an Alps 2 Ocean App

EXPLORE ALPS 2 OCEAN

I designed a companion phone application for Alps 2 Ocean which is a free cycle trail. Explore is a fun and challenging app where the user can find and spot objects along the trail like a treasure or scavanger hunt. It's a great way to learn about and get involved in the New Zealand landscape as well as providing some mental stimulation to a mostly physical task.

Solutions Coaching branding, campaign, website and business cards.

SOLUTIONS COACHING

I created an identity and mini-campaign for my client, Carina Gwynne, who is starting a personal and professional coaching business. She wanted it to be minimalist, dynamic and fluid in black and white. She helps people imagine, innovate and implement their goals which is why the campaign is concentrating on the definitions of these positive action words.

TalkTalk's We Are Brighter Together Campaign website, adshel, flyers and collateral.

TALKTALK CAMPAIGN

I designed an interactive, fun and innovative campaign for British telecommunications company TalkTalk as a part of the D&AD competition. I incorporated TalkTalk's branding theme of 'a brighter home for everyone' by creating a campaign around growing, finding, shining and sharing light in all sorts of forms. I created a website, adshel and flyers for it.

Wonder Magazine spreads and mockups.

WONDER MAGAZINE

I had two weeks to learn more about InDesign and create a couple of magazine spreads for a class project. It was really useful because I could concentrate in depth on one program. I made up an inspirational magazine, this issue dealt with space and unique words. I played around with creative layouts as I wanted to create a special reading experience.

Whisky and Indie Music Festival fake book, programme and card.

WHISKY & INDIE MUSIC

A classmate and I created a fake book, programme and card for a direct mail group project. We created a Whisky and Indie Music Festival which would be held yearly at The Library Bar and Lounge. This fake book, holding a whisky flask, would be sent out to the limited VIP guests. We worked collaboratively and creatively to complete a successful final product.

Quotebook Website computer mockups.

QUOTEBOOK WEBSITE

A few years ago I came up with the idea to create a website where you could store, favourite and comment upon quotes. So I created it and it was a huge hit among my friends. It functions like most social media websites where people can sign up, create a profile page and then upload their favourite movie quotes or in-jokes between friends in an easy to access place.
