Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade
Designing and laying out reports isn’t normally at the top of the creative wish list. But it’s a different story when the brief involves a unique opportunity for our nation’s future.
It was clear from the outset that the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade had the bigger picture in mind for this brief. So much more than just another report, it’s an aspirational manifesto showcasing Australia’s Sustainable Development Goals on a global level.
With the report being presented to the United Nations, and with Australia’s Sustainable Development Goals front and centre, the creative approach demanded a respectful and meaningful response so as to do its content justice. We commissioned talented Wiradjuri artist, Jordana Angus to create 17 unique artworks, each one representing a sustainable development goal.
Symbolising goal implementation, the artworks were then incorporated into the design and layout; transforming the report into a living, shareable manifesto for Australia and the world.
Each original artwork represented a sustainable development goal.
