Visual Communication Victoria 2008 Annual Conference: Printed collateral

So, who's it for and what's it about?

When teacher’s association Visual Communication Victoria chose ‘design with a conscience’ as its theme for their 2008 annual conference, it seemed only natural to choose Victoria’s bird emblem, the endangered Helmeted Honeyeater as its motif.  With campaigns effectively saving it from extinction, the Helmeted Honeyeater remains a symbol of the power of unity in instigating positive change, and a reminder of our need to design without compromise. Playful, stylised interpretations of the Helmeted Honeyeater adorned posters, name tags, recycled paper show bags, maps, an invitation and conference program, providing the event with a strong and unified visual presence promoting its eco-friendly theme.
