About this project

The REMEMBRANCE website aims to connect the ‘Now Generation’ of today with events of the First World War 100 years ago. The site will combine contemporary design, animation and interactive info graphics, to create an engaging and inspiring narrative that will develop and evolve over the next 4 years of the Centenary. The outcome will be a meaningful and dynamic experience, which can be revisited and shared as we recall the war years.

I’ve developed a prototype website that demonstrates the concept of REMEMBRANCE. Now I’m raising money for the resources that will allow me to share this campaign with hundreds of thousands of people.

Your backing will fund the following two key aspects of the campaign:

1. To hire a professional web developer to build the REMEMBRANCE site, compatible on desktops and mobile devices.

2. Ongoing research, content generation and design for the Remembrance campaign as we move through the 4 year Centenary.

The rewards

Every person who backs this project will receive a gift that reflects the concept of REMEMBRANCE. I have produced a range of visual memorabilia, designed alongside the website, to serve as reminders of the Centenary for all those supporting this project.

In addition, backing will enable me to design, print and ship memorabilia as rewards for all those who help to build and launch the website.

Where the funds will go

More specifically, your backing will help me to achieve the following aspects of the campaign:

  • Interviews and historical research
  • Graphic and digital design for the campaign
  • Copywriting the written content
  • Purchase fonts and other design assets
  • Hire a professional web developer to build the responsive website, compatible on both desktop and mobile devices
  • Undertake browser and device testing
  • Ensure robust user testing 

In addition, your backing will enable me to design, print and ship high quality REMEMBRANCE memorabilia as rewards for all those who help to build and launch the website.

Get involved in the campaign

I will be looking to collaborate with individuals, groups and organisations over the 4 years of the Centenary, and I would be happy to in arrange large reward bundles to suite donations for larger groups such as:

  • Schools and colleges
  • Organisations related to the Centenary
  • Charities
  • Museums, galleries and historical collections
  • Families linked to the First World War

If you would like to get involved in the campaign, feel free to email me at talk@edharrisondesign.com.

Production and fulfilment  

With successful funding the following milestones will mark the progress of this project:

June – July 2014: backers support REMEMBRANCE project through generous donations

August 2014: backers receive REMEMBRANCE memorabilia

September – November 2014: design & build of REMEMBRANCE website

Armistice Day - November 11th: launch of REMEMBRANCE website

I’ll be detailing the entire process through regular online updates to backers along the way.

My ultimate goal is to keep the message of REMEMBRANCE alive, making it relevant and meaningful to a whole new generation.

Risks and challenges

I am very passionate in my design and I am excited to be working on such an amazing project. With both in-house and agency environment experience, I am comfortable and familiar with different aspects of design and production. I hope to be able to meet the expectations I have set for everyone supporting the project.

I have set the above timelines as an initial goal, but it is not always possible to predict every speed bump that may be encountered along the way. For this reason, I’ll be detailing the entire process through regular online updates to backers along the way.

Thank you for your support in making this campaign a reality.
