AuScope Highlights 2020

AuScope is a research infrastructure provider that is playing an increasingly important role in science leadership and facilitating research collaboration.

Design by Bird, in collaboration with AuScope (& their community in academia, government & industry), designed and delivered both strategic documents for print and presentation that led to the successful endorsement and pursuit of the goals outlined throughout. The Strategic and Investment Plans outline the approach that AuScope will take to build the Downward Looking Telescope (DLT), a critical infrastructure system identified in the National Research Infrastructure Roadmap, the National Academy of Science’s Decadal Plan for Australian Geoscience and by the Australian geoscience research community. It also outlines the critical data, culture and collaboration needs surrounding the DLT that will act as the ‘glue’ to enable positively impactful geoscience.

Testimonial
Once again, Design by Bird has delivered an impressive visual design solution for AuScope which supports its reputation in enabling collaborative and innovative geoscience research.

This project took the form of two companion brochures that bring life to the ideas of over 150 scientists about how to address Australia’s earth and geospatial challenges over the decade ahead. Given the extensive process that AuScope took to collect, synthesise and articulate scientists’ ideas, this momentous project called for a rather spectacular, engaging, distinctive and sophisticated visual language that is consistent with — but elevated upon — the AuScope brand.

Design by Bird has been exceptional in adapting and working iteratively and collaboratively with us across an eight-month period during the pandemic. We have received great feedback from both our scientific community and our Australian Government funder about the documents. And we will be pleased to work together again in the near future since we trust Luke’s creative vision, technical skill, flexibility, reliability, and delivery to be well beyond our expectations.
