Lost in Space  Redesigns Greenpeace SE Asia’s Newsletter and Annual Certificates

#design #print #NGO #communication

You don't often get an opportunity to redesign from scratch a big organization's communications assets like their Newsletter.

Greenpeace SE Asia realized that they needed to address the SE Asian audience in a more targeted manner. The euro-centric eco warrior look was not that relevant to their local audience and they approached lost in space to as a studio with regional experience with the Thai market in particular to redesign their Communications to better appeal to that audience.

Knowing the market in Thailand Lost in space were able to identify the local audience's demographics and their reading/lifestyle preferences. Then create a fresh look and format for the Greenpeace Newsletter designed to target that audience.

Lost in space worked closely with local thai designers and illustrators with extensive experience in international markets.

Designer Chakrapan Oak Suwanphanich worked closely with greenpeace to craft a new look and lead the Newsletter into a more magazine like format with a simpler cleaner contemporary style.

Illustrator Pann Riety Karnpoj created illustrations and information graphics to convey information and engage the audience.

The Annual Certificate for Supporters was part of the redesign package and again was made to be fresh and appealing, something that people would show off to their friends and colleagues

Annual Certificate for Supporters

The Annual Certificate for Supporters was part of the redesign package and again was made to be fresh and appealing, something that people would show off to their friends and colleagues.


We were very excited to be invited by MASSIVE software to refresh the interface design for version 6 of the software recently. 

MASSIVE came to fame for its "massive" army battle simulations in films such as Lord of the RIngs and is currently the market leader for such VFX applications in feature film including the Zombie hordes in World War Z (story here)

The brief was to retain the existing users familiar icons and layouts but to refresh the look and make it contemporary, easy to use for long periods and simpler to understand.
Losts approach was to refine the icons down to simpler easily recognizable versions while retianing similarities that allowed existing users immediatley to recognize them while allowing new users a visually simpler and clearer set of icons to learn. The colour schemes were reorganized to a carefully thought out colour pallette that grouped like operations and icons again making the interface easier to view for longer periods and more logical to use. 

the concepts and gui guides.

the final MASSIVE v6 screengrabs with the new interface implemented.

LOST on the Great Wall

LOST creates an Audio Responsive films on a 20m Data Wall for UTS SYDNEY

Lost In Space was commissioned by FROST DESIGN (Sydney) to create several real-time audio responsive mood films to play on a 20meter wide LED Data Wall. The films are intended to establish a mood as people assemble for events in the Great Hall at The University of Technology, Sydney. The Films needed to work well in the radical interior of polygonalized perforated aluminum created by architects DRAW.

FROST DESIGN provided the Art Direction and overall Design of the works but relied heavily on the LOST IN SPACE team of Real-time Digital Artists Andrew Quinn and Christian Hogue. Christians experience with high-end VFX feature film and television Commercial work using specialist 3d app Houdini and Andrews experience as a digital artist with various Arts and Performing bodies in Europe helped immensely in creating an engaging real-time installation.
LOST used Touch Designer, popularized recently by the Amon Tobin ISAM TOUR visuals, in the creation of the project.

Being based on a high end VFX 3d procedural animation tool Touch Designer allows sophisticated 3d visuals including particle systems and live composting in real-time without the need for extensive coding.

Invisible VFX for Invisible People

Lost In Space was commissioned by The Human Eye Corporation (Bangkok) to create several shots for an NGO short film designed to raise awareness of the plight of statless people.
Working with director Rupert James, Lost created several shots of a young woman moving about a city leaving no reflection – with no visual trace of her existence.
Without national identity papers stateless people are essentially invisible to the government of the country in which they reside. They have no access to education or health care and are more vulnerable to human trafficking and other forms of exploitation than people with identities.
The live action shots were carefully planned to allow for reflection removal while not placing unnecessary restrictions on the production. By reducing the number of passes required to a bare minimum and working for the entirety of the shoot on location without a blue screen real creative freedom was given to the director and dp.
The film was created for Plan International as part of their global Because I am a Girl campaign.
