About the AIATSIS Website Redesign
AIATSIS is Australia's only national institution focused exclusively on the diverse history, cultures, and heritage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia.
In a truly collaborative design approach, AIATSIS engaged 33 Creative – a First Nations media, communications and events company – and Folk to consult with AIATSIS stakeholders including First Nation Australians to inform the design and development of its new website. The Indigenous-led working partnership saw stunning artwork by Lucy Simpson featured in AIATSIS’ new brand, with expertise from Folk to bring the brand to life through a refreshed website experience.
Folk developed AIATSIS' digital design and website to transform a traditional government website into an engaging, accessible, and vibrant information hub that celebrates the culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their cultures, heritage and contributions to our national story.
