Te Reo Māori educational resource that focuses on the events of the 1981 Springbok tour of New Zealand. The resource was designed to engage year 11–13 students and provoke them to explore the concept of social consciousness, while improving their research and literacy skills.
The typeface selection was unbound by any identity guidelines. A custom font wasn’t an option within the budget (and skill levels!), so Brush Up was selected to represent the protesters’ hand-painted signs that were a symbol of the tour. Jockey was chosen for its bold geometric quirkiness, and was used to avoid hand-painted overkill from Brush Up for secondary headers and infographics. Stag’s texture felt right for the running text in the students’ resource, and Graphik was used for the complimentary captions and instructional text within the teacher’s guide.
