NEW ZEALAND FRESHWATER FISH SAMPLING PROTOCOLS FIELD GUIDE PART ONE
Service Areas: Science Communication, Photographic Resources

Responding to gaps in industry resources, the New Zealand Freshwater Fish Sampling Protocols Field Guide Part 1 was published in 2013 by Massey University. Written by Mike Joy, Bruno David and Mike Lake, it was designed and produced by EOS Ecology. EOS Ecology’s trademark high quality photographs adorn the cover, and add value to the clear content throughout. Feedback from industry specialists has been enthusiastic, with the document described as attractive and easy to use.

DOC ARAWAI KAKARIKI WETLAND PROGRAMME
Service Areas: Science Communication, Infographics

The Department of Conservation’s Arawai Kākāriki Wetland Restoration Programme aims to enhance the ecological restoration of three of New Zealand’s foremost wetland sites, making use of strong community involvement and promoting research into wetland restoration techniques.

Working within the existing DOC brand guidelines and icon library, EOS Ecology has produced a suite of visual communication resources to support this programme. This included a set of four display banners for the 2013 NZFSS conference, a brochure and a report.

Working with many different stakeholders required a strategic and well-implemented communications plan—and strong visuals is a critical component of success.

AQUALINC BRAND DEVELOPMENT
Service Areas: Science Communication, Photographic Resources

Aqualinc Research Ltd had an existing logo they used on their marketing material, but they needed a stronger brand developed to reflect their influential position in the groundwater research arena. As there was years of exposure and investment in the existing logo, EOS Ecology’s Science Communication team worked within its boundaries and developed a graphic look, colour palette and photography coding system that brought Aqualinc’s service strengths to life.

A consistent suite of material was developed including printed marketing collateral, tradeshow stand and digital assets that would ensure they could always easily put their best foot forward in a brand capacity.

ENVIRONMENT INSTITUTE OF AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND
Service Areas: Science Communication, Photographic Resources

EIANZ asked EOS to produce a simple set of marketing material to help attract a broad range of new members. We developed a set of posters designed to separately target environmental practioners from those still studying, to seasoned professionals working within local or central government. People-focused photos and simple “join now” messaging was utilised to provide tearoom-wall cut through, and provide EIANZ with a more contemporary look.

EOS expanded the collateral with banners for use at conferences and trade events providing a consistent image for the Institute.

All items were produced in the most certified eco-friendly way possible, as one would expect from such an organisation.

ESTUARY GUIDE BOOK
Service Areas: Science Communication, Photographic Resources, Original Artwork

EOS’s Science Communication team were approached to research, write, source images and design a small field guide for the Avon-Heathcote Estuary/Ihutai Trust (AHEIT) about the Heathcote Estuary.

Exploring an Estuary’s combination of quirky social history, accurate natural history facts, great photos, hand drawn sketches and useful infographics has proved an entertaining package. It’s a publication packed full of interesting and fun facts, and is a great addition to any visit to the Estuary.

After receiving funding to develop the guide as a free resource to help educate local residents about their Estuary, the final output is so comprehensive and compelling the Trust have now decided to make the 54 page book available for purchase to assist their fundraising efforts.

ECAN EARTHQUAKE ECOLOGICAL EFFECTS ON CHRISTCHURCH RIVERS AND ESTUARY SUMMARY REPORTS
Service Areas: Science Communication, Photographic Resources

Plain english, infographics, easy-to-follow layout and lots of photos to help illustrate the content are all utilised in these summary reports—developed under time pressure following the 2011 Christchurch quakes.

Working within the Ecan Report design template many reports from different organisations were summarised into two reports covering the river and estuary environments. These were intended for the general publics consumption, and were to be accessible via download, therefore layout and final file size all had to be taken into consideration at the start of the project.

WAITAHA RIVER PROJECT
Service Areas: Science Communication, Photographic Resources

Westpower needed a series of posters for public meetings that showed the results of baseline surveys and explained some of the possible plans that power generation in the Waitaha River could involve. Lots of maps and photos, small nuggets of written content and an attractive overall look make them popular viewing at meetings.

Using simple graphics and writing for projects like this help break down barriers between industry and the local populace, helping explain the scientific facts which may fly in the face of local myth.
