I’m Anna Haf, a welsh speaker born and raised in the rural lands of Machynlleth, Mid-Wales. I initially moved to Cardiff to study Graphic Communication at Cardiff School of Art and Design, however after finding myself getting immersed in the wonderful creative community here, and having made new life-long friendships, I’m now in Cardiff to stay!
I love to explore (preferably with my dog by my side), draw, and try new things. Outside of University, I am one of the newest team members of Creative Mornings Cardiff. I’ve been a proud volunteer since June 2019 and I’ve loved the entire experience so far. I’m now looking forward to seeing what life after Uni has in store for me!
Be the Change
Design for Real Life
Live Client Brief
Pelican & Respond Healthcare called on us to redesign the accessible toilet signage with hopes of opening up the conversation of welcoming those with invisible disabilities and illnesses into the space. Through research we learned that only 8% of the current disabled population is represented by the current disabled toilet signage, causing uncertainties regarding who we believe to be “allowed” to use the spaces.
This has become what we believe to be the source of the issue, as it has led to members of the public feeling obligated to ‘police’ the toilets against those with seemingly able bodies, when in fact they may have every right to be using the facilities. Whilst the initial priority of this project was for those that wear stoma bags, it soon grew to be something much bigger as we started to notice that those with other mobility aids weren’t represented either, or those with hearing aids, or those who are blind. Be The Change is a campaign that sets out to educate the public about hidden disabilities and illnesses, and help Cardiff become the capital for understanding and recognising any and all disabilities.

Don’t Sugarcoat It
Although an over consumption of sugar has been proven to lead to all sorts of health risks, sugary drinks and snacks are still prevalent in our diets today. It had me wondering how many people actually know how much sugar is too much? Although we may know the figures in our heads, do we know what that number looks like in the form of milliliters of fizzy drinks, or grams of chocolate?
Inspired by cigarette packaging, Don’t Sugarcoat It is a campaign that aims to highlight the dangers and the risks that are caused by the over consumption of sugar by stripping away all sense of branding, and leaving behind the thought provoking information in simple terms. The concept of the branding and the sales of chocolate bars being aimed towards children has been replaced with the use of simple language.
