Institute for Sustainable Futures
Strands of competencies
The Institute for Sustainable Futures works with industry, government and the community to create change, working towards sustainable futures through research and consultancy. By drawing on a range of methods and tools from different disciplines, their researchers create practical and useful outcomes that can be adapted to different situations.
To convey the ‘strands of competencies’ covered by the Institute we created a large artwork using strips of paper. Each strip was masked from individual photographs featuring a particular sustainability issue. The strips were then cut and sculpted (recycled) to make props for a visual system that is beautiful, memorable and consistent.
“Simple. Why didn’t we see that ourselves? That’s what Coast does so brilliantly: they transform and translate multitudes of words and complex ideas into a simple and beautiful design solution.” Ann Hobson, Research & Publications Coordinator
