National Native Title Council
Web Design & Development
The National Native Title Council (NNTC) is the peak body for the native title sector and was formed after the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission (ATSIC) was abolished in 2005. The NNTC provides a voice and representation for the views of native title organisations across the country. It also provides submissions to governments on policy and legislation development, disseminates important information among its members, as well as acts as a consultant on issues of native title and land-related matters.
Our design brief was to produce a corporate-looking, governmental website that appealed to lawyers, senior public servants, corporate decision-makers, Traditional Owners and their representative bodies. We wanted to represent the ancient lands and Indigenous culture by using the red earth and pale ochre colours of outback Australia. The tones of grey represent authority, power, and the politics of liaising with corporate, legal, and governmental stakeholders that engage with the NNTC.
It was important that the design and visual language of the site was built with a clear focus on inclusivity where English may be a second or third language, through to addressing the requirements directed at the corporate & governmental sectors.
