PROJECT

We were honoured and privileged to work together with Kahui Legal to produce the Whanganui River Settlement Ratification booklet relating to the proposed settlement of the historical Treaty of Waitangi claims of Whanganui iwi (tribe) in respect of the Whanganui River – a truly historic event to be apart of.

This booklet was provided to the Whanganui Iwi members to allow them the opportunity to vote on approval of the Whanganui River Deed of Settlement.

The design outcome included incorporating both current and historical photography relating to Whanganui and it's people, with a complimentary colour palette. A simple maori graphic element (koru) was introduced to connect the content throughout and was also a main element of the iwi management's logo at the time.

The design and chosen type-face and sizing was critical to ensure elderly members of the iwi could easily read and understand the information along with the younger generations.

We worked very closely with Kahui Legal and were on-call all hours to deliver this substantial document successfully and in a very tight turnaround time.
