Dignitas is about the dignity of each human in Melbourne, and the tireless work of so many individuals whose hearts break for every person that society considers beneath it. Dignitas is an Annual Report I created for a fake organisation based on two former Melbourne charities, Urban Seed and Salt & Light. Both of these organisations do amazing work in our city and I wanted to pay them both tribute. I chose to echo in my design what these organisations do in reality — focus on people.
To this end, I elected to combine casual portrait photography with non-distracting type and a simple colour scheme, with the layout heavily biased towards my photography – it's the people that really count. All portraits were photographed by me, although not all the attached stories are real.
