Department of Planning Lands and Heritage

Nicolas and Georgia of the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage, contacted us to help them to create the content for a Consumer Guide and Print Advert as part of the Open House Perth Festival in 2017. The focus was to inform, educate and empower the everyday person to make good design decisions when building apartments – fulfilling their personal goals as well as achieving “bigger picture” community outcomes in regards to quality development. The Department wanted their communication to be perceived as trusted, handy, useful, impartial, memorable and a little fun.
