Today Pavilion at Purpose

Gold: Pop-ups, display, exhibit & set design

Silver: Environmental sustainability
Silver: Circular economy

Developed as an immersive and interactive space to “pause, reflect, and contemplate brighter futures”, the Today Pavilion was inserted into the humming milieu of Purpose Conference 2022 at Eveleigh’s Carriageworks.

Alongside Studio Edwards, we designed a co-creative space that would invite collaborative conversations on a brighter future; facilitated by a live musical performance and an interactive digital experience. The transient architecture provides conference attendees with a memorable spatial encounter that encourages inhabitation, congregation, pause and reflection.

BlueRock: big thinking for your next adventure

Silver: Digital, Finance

BlueRock are a visionary, creative and entrepreneurial bunch who do professional and financial services differently. They are a fellow B Corp, and they genuinely care about social and environmental impact.

They needed a next-generation website experience that inspired their customers, who come to them because they do things differently. We ran a participatory, iterative design process to get to the heart of what that really meant and how it should be expressed in the design.

The new BlueRock website helps customers understand what they do, but more importantly, it helps get them excited about having BlueRock as a partner in the adventure of business.

Reducing isolation and loneliness through social prescribing

Silver: Service, Government
Silver: Better future, equity and inclusion

'Social Prescribing’ is a
new initiative embedded within the Mental Health and Wellbeing Locals to connect people with community-based activities that best meet their interests and needs. 32 consumers and carers came together to co-design the service model of 'social prescribing', reimagining how we support people (including their carers, families, and supporters) through non-clinical, community-based activities.

The solution is being trialled across six locations, supporting Victorians to be included in, and connected to, their communities.
