Rainbow Bridge is an online resource for Queenslanders of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds who are also Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender (LGBT). Responding to a gap in readily-available information and support, the Queensland Association for Healthy Communities Inc. (Healthy Communities) sought funding from the Queensland Government’s Department of Communities to develop the website as a starting point for CALD LGBT persons to access. The site is aimed at newly arrived Queenslanders as well as students and tourists from overseas.
Liveworm were approached to assist in bringing all of the information gathered by Healthy Communities online. Liveworm student Amanda Heloey (pictured above left with Healthy Communities LGBT Multicultural Project Officer Sophiaan Subhan at the 2012 Brisbane Pride Festival) was responsible for the design of the Rainbow Bridge branding as well as promotional collateral and of course the website. The website was launched during the 2012 Brisbane Pride Festival and was the first ever Liveworm project launch to include a drag queen performance!

The Peaks to Points Festival is a biannual event that celebrates the natural environment of greater Brisbane’s southern region during September. The associated events aim to raise awareness of this special area by showcasing the activities of local community and environmental groups that are working to improve the environment. You can find out more by visiting their website.
Liveworm were again engaged to develop a poster and pamphlet to promote the festival. These were designed by Kimberley Clifford (using illustrations developed for 2010′s event by Kate Jury).
The Yeronga Flood Recovery Centre ran during the January 2011 Brisbane floods right through until February the next year. The Centre itself had no plan, initially no budget and relied on members of the community volunteering their time and skills to help those caught up in the disaster. After the close of the centre, those involved were interested in documenting that process, providing recognition to the people and organisations who ‘put their hand up’ to help and the stories of the ‘floodies’ who called on the centre for assistance. The result was the publication Walking the Path to Recovery: the story of the Yeronga Flood Recovery Centre written by Fiona McLeod and Annie Wright, co-edited by Sandra McLeod and Melinda McInturff.
Liveworm were approached to help give these stories form and to produce the design of the publication. Student Rosie Cameron approached the project with the intention of promoting a hand-made/craft aesthetic rather than a visually slick government-style report. The publication references the visual language of scrap books, underpinned by the constant background of the brown water that affected all the participants.
As part of the University of Queensland’s 10th Annual Diversity Week, the School of Journalism and Communication launched the I am UniQue campaign. The campaign aimed to promote students’ confidence in themselves and their own unique identity with competitions and interactive discussions run on campus.
Liveworm Daniel Bell created a flexible brand identity system to promote the campaign. The system was applied to various promotional applications like banners, posters, facebook pages and desktop screensavers.
Crossbows is a new festival of music produced by the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University focused on performances by small ensembles. Over 4 days the festival will host the likes of Katie Noonan and Elixir, Elision, New Zealand String Quartet, Topology and Clocked Out, Tripod, Southern Cross Soloists, Trichotomy and many more.
Liveworm Scholarship student Herbey Wagner approached the brief with the aim to excite regular Queensland Conservatorium patrons as well as draw in a new audience. A key image and visual language was created and applied across several mediums for the event. For more information about Crossbows and the full range of ensembles on show, you can download a low resolution Crossbows Festival program (PDF).
Every year the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University produces this publication to document their upcoming concert season highlights. Following on from the success of last years collaboration, the Conservatorium again entrusted Liveworm and Seesaw Photography to assist in producing the program for 2012.
Liveworm students Chloe Mantell-Ackroyd and Patricia Kabamba began with the circular visuals used in 2011 and added in their own angle of brighter hues, swirling lights and bold typography to symbolise that the Conservatorium was moving into a vibrant future post-renovation.
