Design/branding of Australia's Environment report

Contest Brief

We are an Australian research centre and every year produce a report on the state of Australia's Environment. We are looking for a distinct style to use across our digital and printed media, which includes a web-based data explorer, an annual fact sheet and a live briefing event. At the moment most of our audience arrives via [login to view URL] or [login to view URL] where you can find all our current products. We wish to apply a common style across our products that uses at least a common colour palette, typography, and any other visual style elements (e.g. icons as a visual contents guide, a logo or use of photos as vignettes, etc - that's for you to decide). The focus is on a recognisable style rather than a brand.

Submissions:
I would hope to see submissions as some sample fact sheet pages, briefing slides, perhaps even a draft re-imagined landing page, web explorer or loose style elements - whatever you want to use to demonstrate your style ideas. The current material (via links above) should provide plenty of material to work with, but I can field any concrete questions throughout.
I don't expect a full set of (reusable) templates or comprehensive brand book, or use-ready elements - rather examples of some great style ideas that will help us decide to continue to work (via [login to view URL]) with the chosen designer and implement it across our products.

Tone:
The reports aim to provide factual information about Australia's degrading environment on an annual basis, so it needs to have a serious and informative tone. The style should be relevant to the Australian environment (but no overused Australian icons such as flags, kangeroos etc). Probably earthy colors typical of Australia's environment (red-brown, olive green etc) but happy to be surprised. Some style nods to the university ([login to view URL]) that our centre is part of would be nice but not imperative.

      Thanks Pavlo, that's very generous of you. Just to let you know that your design was also very strong, particularly on the web design side. Sorry we could only afford one winner.

      It's ok, it's my fault that I not put enough effort to create better design :) And another my mistake is that I worked on a live-preview of website, based on your wordpress theme(I thought you no need fully redesign and change layout/theme/website engine etc) because it's takes longer then just a layout design. In next time I put more efforts, so thanks for a nice words! Regards

    I'm giving it another try and working on something completely new.. As always, any feedback or direction after #103 & #104 would be greatly appreciated. Things you like/don't like or just a few of the words that come to your mind first when viewing my designs.

    Thanks in advance

    I am beginning my revisions now, so any kind of new feedback for #59 would be nice.
    If you can tell me something more about what you like/not like , or maybe something you want me to try , or any other kind of direction at all, it would greatly improve the quality of my revisions.

    Thanks in advance :)

    ( If you do so, kindly reply on my design privately and not in public comments )

    The future of our planet is so volatile, I would love to help you out with this project! I'll be taking my time to research your needs and Australian environmentalism today. I don't like to use standard templates and designs. I dig in and fully embody the vision of the project. I should have some designs sent your way within the next two days! Thank you for doing your part to save the only place that the human race can call home.

      Hi Sid, we've been printing the 4 pages booklet style on A3 so that we could fold it to A4. That's worked well for us. Going to more than 4 pages is not out of the question but would need a good reason.

    G'day dear CH,
    please narrow down a design deliverables, to make it easier to work for us and for you to compare the contest entries. If everyone will do a different deliverable, you won't be able to decide on the style. Please keep in mind, this is a big project, which will involve a lot of design thinking and research on our side.
    Please make this contest #sealed to prevent copyrights issues and create a professional environment.

    Hope you will make some changes in your description.

    Your Explanations are a bit vague. Why don't you start with something simple like a Logo or Letter headed paper?

    • 1 month ago
    1. albertijmvandijk

      • 1 month ago

      I am not after a logo or letter headed paper. I am after a few worked examples of parts of our outputs from last year. For example, a page of the report, a title slide and 1 or 2 sample slides of the powerpoint, etc. I want to be able to see how the style elements would work together. I don't want to be too prescriptive about the exact outputs as I am looking for an approach that suits out goals and an ongoing relationship.
