This project was performed on behalf of Albany Associates, a company offering communications and strategic solutions to organisations working within challenging and transitional environments across the globe.
Because of the nature of the business, sometimes Albany needs a little backup in delivering complex information to a wide audience, often to extremely tight deadlines and specific budgets. Careful planning and exact delivery are essential.
Working jointly with UNESCO, Albany needed a website to be developed which showcased a collection of information regarding the electoral process in Jordan. It was to be called The Jordan Election Road Map.
The information needed to be delivered in various dynamic formats including videos, PDF books, images and statistical data. The data was to be delivered raw and needed careful preparation before it was suitable for public consumption. It needed editing for quality, brevity and content.
So the question was: how could this all be delivered on time, on budget and to a level of quality befitting the importance of the project?
We started by designing a single-page website template using up-to-date, compliant HTML5 coding. This template needed to intelligently showcase and streamline the various data formats.
Statistical data was gathered by our team and turned into attractive, easily digested infographics. We took the time to bring these to life, adding dynamic elements through the use of HTML5.
We performed extensive video editing to refine the footage and produce a polished finish.
We then used high-quality ebook publishing software to convert the PDFs into a dynamic format which could be embedded into our website template. We also added functional quick links to the side of the PDF documents for ease of navigation.
As a finishing touch, we integrated social media options to the page.
Both Albany Associates and UNESCO were hugely grateful for the work and careful consideration we put into this project, and the fact that all deadlines were firmly stuck to. They were particularly pleased with the dynamic and easy-to-understand format of the finalised data, and the quality of the website design.
The finished site has been visited by audiences throughout Jordan’s 12 main provinces as well as international visitors from UNESCO and other global organisations including OSCE (Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe).

Taskman is a simple, unique and highly effective task-request system that helps organisations keep on top of their request and feedback requirements. It’s affordable, adaptable and has been described as a ‘godsend’ by its users.
So naturally, the design and development box had already been ticked!
What they needed was a way to convey the system’s features and benefits in a way that would deliver maximum leads and conversions from their website and through other channels. Using text just wasn’t snappy enough and imagery didn’t suffice for getting across the USPs of this product.
How could Taskman present and pitch their software effectively without losing the client’s attention?
We suggested developing a series of videos and the team at Taskman were all for it. By using moving images and carefully scripted commentary, we could highlight the multi-faceted benefits of the software and potential customers could see it in action. We suggested creating two videos so that we could focus on the product as a whole, then zoom in on one of its key features.
The first video was filmed in a high-end private school. This was the perfect setting as it allowed us to highlight the versatility of the software and its various elements within one organisation. We blended portrayal of the software in action with testimonials from those who use it every day. The client is thrilled with this video and it remains an extremely effective marketing tool.
The second video focused on Auto Enrolment, a key function of the system. The purpose of the video was to teach members how to use elements of Taskman, so we used a two-camera shoot and HD screen recording, with all cameras functioning simultaneously to give us the pick of the shots when editing. The client says this video is invaluable when highlighting just how easy this system is to use, so it’s proved useful as a marketing tool as well as a tutorial.
The videos are still in use by Taskman through various channels. Our finished films continue to play a crucial part in their overall marketing strategy.
