I can’t give away too much information yet but a fun project is currently in the works. What I will say, though, is that a lot of hard work will be involved, lots of planning, plenty of designing, much coding, some database-ing, and apples too!
For my final subject at college, I had to choose out of three briefs and use Graphic Design to help solve a problem. The project brief I picked was raising awareness of Homelessness in Australia via the “Here for Good” campaign by Torren Universities Australia.
After doing substantial research on the subject, I found out some shocking facts. Here’s a small list:
on average, 1 in 200 Australians are homeless
in NT, that number is 15 times worse (1 in 13 Australians)
the number 1 reason for homelessness is domestic and family violence
the number 2 reason for homelessness is financial difficulties
59% of homeless Australians are under 35 years old
17% of homeless Australians are under 12 years old
the greatest need that homeless people have is foot-wear and foot-care
It is so good to see people using what they have to help those who are less fortunate and that doesn’t always have to be through money. Your profession, your skills, your time, and your care could go a long way.
There are a couple of foundations that strike a cord with me and I hope to be able to do more for them.
Are there some charities or foundations that you sponsor and help out with? Share them in the comments below.
We are proud to say that 1VINE Design is now a proud supporter of the Streetsmart Handbooks which are produced by Neighbourhood Watch Australasia.
The Neighbourhood Watch’s goal is to create safer communities all over Australia and New Zealand. Here’s more from their website.
Our goal at Neighbourhood Watch Australasia (NHWA) is to assist Australian neighbourhoods become safer, connected and inclusive communities through the establishment of crime prevention initiatives.
The purpose of the Streetsmart Handbook is to support teenagers and their parents by providing personal safety information as a preventative approach to crime and personal risk.
The Streetsmart Handbook is produced in conjunction with Countrywide Austral and addresses personal safety and crime related issues relating to cyber bullying, depression, community social behaviour, drugs, alcohol and more. The handbook also lists key organisations and helpline numbers for teenagers and families who need extra support and assistance.
A big thank you to the team at Neighbourhood Watch for all the great and important work that they do.
I spent the better part of the start of this year setting up the new website, getting my portfolio printed and setting up my administrative documents in preparation of new prospective clients.
If you are in Brisbane and are looking for Graphic Design work, or know someone who might be, get in touch. I’d love to help you with any and all of your design needs.
For the past 15 years, I’ve been working on Graphic Design projects for friends and family, designing logos, business cards, brochures, posters, websites, game art, packaging design and other projects.
It’s been a while since you’ve heard from us and we’re so sorry about that. It was a crazy end for 2017 but that’s behind us now. To kick-off 2018, we’ve launched a one page portfolio to preview some of our designs and work.
Meanwhile, work resumes on the complete website and we hope to launch it very soon.
In the earlier half of this year, we will be selecting a number of small businesses that have a big impact on the community around them but haven’t had access to, or even the funds for, a re-branding and will be offering them our services for free!
The re-branding pitch will come in the form of a multi-page A5 booklet / brochure, explaining the new logo and previewing it through a set of in situ mockup photos.
We will be sharing each of these projects on our blog so look out for them.
Thank you for tuning in and we hope 2018 is an amazing year for you and your families.
