DOWNER GROUP

WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY COLLATERAL

Downer Group designs, builds and sustains assets, infrastructure and facilities across Australia and New Zealand.

As an environmentally conscious organisation, Downer wanted to promote World Environment Day within the company through some internal communication pieces, including posters, email banners, intranet banners, a colouring-in competition for children of employees, screensavers and a banner in the DownerConnect app.

Bite designed the hero imagery which depicts the earth and a plant growing from it, with an overlay of environmental and sustainability icons that reflect various areas people and organisations like Downer, can make a contribution to being sustainable. This hero imagery was then applied to a number of communication pieces to create a consistent visual message.

AUSTRALIAN BEEF SUSTAINABILITY

ANNUAL UPDATE 2020

The Australian Beef Sustainability Framework (ABSF) was established by the Australian beef industry to help meet the changing expectations of consumers, customers, investors and other stakeholders, and promote the longevity and prosperity of the industry.

Bite was asked to design and format the 80-page 2020 ABSF Annual Update in a style that would fit with previous reports we have produced, but have its own distinct look and feel. Infographics were used to concisely explain content and large photos were used throughout (in particular as section dividers) to add visual interest.

DOWNER GROUP

DOWNER EDI RAIL EPD

Downer Group designs, builds and sustains assets, infrastructure and facilities and are the leading provider of integrated services in Australia and New Zealand.

The Downer EDI Rail EPD was produced for the Sydney Growth Trains (SGT) project as the centrepiece of the NSW Government’s More Trains, More Services program. An EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) is a standardised way to quantify the environmental performance of a product, process or system and to report on it.

Bite designed and produced the 20-page Downer EDI Rail EPD using a combination of photographic images, charts, graphs and statistics. The task was to produce a document that presented a large and varied amount of technical information in an attractive and easy-to-understand way.

EPDs are becoming more and more common in providing the environmental credentials of organisations’ products and services.

CURRIE COMMUNICATIONS

SUSTAINABILITY REPORT 2019

DEPARTMENT OF HOME AFFAIRS

PROFILING AUSTRALIA'S VULNERABILITY REPORT

A report for Department of Home Affairs, ‘Profiling Australia’s Vulnerability’, is the result of a year-long initial study of the causes and effects of disasters in Australia. It was initiated to help understand where to prioritise collective efforts to reduce loss and harm across society as a result of disasters.

As the text for this report was gathered from a variety of individuals, Bite was asked to edit the draft text to establish a common voice and tone as well as rectify any spelling or grammatical errors. Following approval of the text, Bite designed and constructed the entire report, sourcing appropriate images and developing graphics. As there were many stakeholders involved in this project, we needed to respond to a number of iterations throughout the project. As is the case with many of our projects, confidentiality was critical.

VICTORIAN ENVIRONMENTAL WATER HOLDER

SEASONAL WATERING PLAN

The Victorian Environmental Water Holder (VEWH) works with catchment management authorities and Melbourne Water to ensure environmental water entitlements are used to achieve the best environmental outcomes with water that is available.

Bite was commissioned to produce the 308-page 2020-21 Seasonal Watering Plan. The Plan provided a guide to how the VEWH and program partners planned to use the water available to achieve the best possible environmental watering outcomes in a range of climate scenarios. It represented a consolidation of proposed watering actions developed from a bank of local knowledge from regions and scientific monitoring programs.

Because the Plan contains so much information, there was a tight timeline to complete the project with clearly defined milestones established. Bite met every milestone and the client was delighted with the result. Bite was subsequently awarded the 2021-22 Plan.
