Recognising the first Australians.

Much has changed since the Australian constitution was written in 1901. Many Australian’s would be surprised to know that the constitution still includes the possibility for discrimination based on race and ignores Australia’s first peoples and their role as custodians of the world’s oldest continuing culture.

The Australian people have the power to update the constitution through a referendum so it better reflects our shared values. In light of this the Australian Government appointed a panel of experts to consult with the people and lead a nationwide discussion on the issue. This is a historic nation building initiative and as such it’s vital that all Australians have the opportunity to have their say.

Red Bean Republic were tasked with ensuring this conversation was accessible, inclusive, interactive and transparent.

Taking into account the campaign needs and constraints and independent research, Red Bean Republic created the You Me Unity brand identity and all it’s associated assets.
