Artist Support Application Design

Interactive PDF design for Artist Funding Supports

Every year Wicklow County Council, along with all others, send out a call for artists, and arts bodies to apply for a round of funding. The design of these must be easy to use, accessible and vibrant. This is a programme of positivity; feeding back into the cultural landscape of the county. The funding makes life as an artist possible for so many and is a crucial lifeline.

What this means in practice, is the production of easily transferrable, downloadable pdf forms. They can be filled in on a computer for submission, or can be printed and completed by hand. They must work for everyone from computer literate digital artists, to older artists accessing them on municipal computers. They must work for disabled and able-bodied users. There must be no ambiguity, and yet they must feel like they belong in a programme which thrives on subjective artist expression. Fancy speak for they must look great.

These are applications which support the programmes detailed in: Art Funding Reports for County Wicklow


Software used was Adobe's Creative Cloud suite - Illustrator, Photoshop and Indesign. Unlike the reports, the design was crips and clear. The typeface used was Monotype's redesigned for digital, Gill Sans Nova. Beautiful!
