Bringing sustainability data to life
Since Earth Day of 2012, the City of Austin’s Office of Sustainability has implemented more than 180 sustainability projects, establishing Austin as a national leader in the fight against climate change. To communicate the enormous progress made during those two years, the Office of Sustainability tapped PRR’s talented team of designers to tell the story of its success.
Designed Office of Sustainability’s Understanding the Big Picture infographic to provide facts and figures that demonstrate the Office of Sustainability’s successful two years of operations.
State of the Food System Report
Designed a report informing the Austin community about the dynamic food system – a system that includes major components such as production, consumption, and waste.
Seaholm Eco-District Logo
Harnessed the Art Deco-style Seaholm Power Plant to create a series of logos designs that also featured the new, environmentally conscious EcoDistrict. The Brand Guidelines will serve as a blueprint for the future of this revolutionary neighborhood.
Community Climate Plan
Designed the 2015 Austin Community Climate Plan – which was reviewed by Austin residents and officials and approved for implementation in June 2015.
The infographic is featured on the City of Austin Office of Sustainability website and has been parlayed into the creation of the City of Austin Office of Sustainability brochure – which PRR created as well. It earned First Place International Hermes Creative Award and a Communicator Award.
“We knocked both projects out of the park – and we certainly could not have done it without our PRR team. Thanks to all of you for jumping through all these wacky hoops and rounds of revisions with us! We think our projects are better because of the design you brought forward”
