Out in the open
Loa identified the need for transparency as a critical concern for all aspects of the campaign. Working with Gladstone Ports Corporation, a strategy that featured weekly community updates, educational fact sheets, newsletters, exhibition materials and a dedicated website featuring real time reporting was developed to keep the community informed. Simple, unpretentious and imagery that featured local areas were employed to ground the aesthetic in reality, and connect directly to residents.

Attendance at Gladstone Ports Corporation hosted community events increased, and website visitation was high, especially for the real time water quality monitoring and downloadable fact sheets.
