GRAPHIC DESIGN FOR SOCIAL CHANGE

The Gauteng Department of Tourism wanted to position the province as more than the business hub of South Africa. To promote the natural beauty, geological and prehistoric attractions, as well as sites of recent and contemporary historical significance, the idea of route maps was conceived.

The intention was to drive business and job creation in the tourism industry, and to encourage locals to explore their “own backyard” and tourists to visit, while educating both groups. dotGOOD researched and conceptualised 10 routes and recommended 150 curated tourist sites and attractions to be included.

We then drew on our experience in using multifunction graphic design for social change to develop enticing layouts that would excite users and get them to explore the routes. Using the narrative content structure we developed for this project, our content team gathered information and created engaging copy for the storyline of each conceptual route, meeting the knowledge-sharing requirement and piquing the user’s curiosity to inspire action.

After final editing and approval, we prepared the maps for media publication and production.

This project illustrates the coordination role we often assume for clients who don’t have the capacity for 360-degree managed production of sophisticated, consumer-oriented collateral.

Through our passion to create positive social change we have become experts in marketing for NGOs, government and social enterprises. We can assist with all communication and coordination needs for full-service, below-the-line marketing and launches.
