Partner Stories

To reach Australians highly engaged in refugee and new migrant stories, SBS partnered with New Humans of Australia to produce a photo series featuring personal stories relating to themes in Safe Harbour. These stories were highly engaging, reaching over 600K people on the New Humans Facebook page and 475K on SBS Australia.

Safe Harbour is an Australian commissioned drama that follows a group of friends on a sailing holiday and discover a struggling fishing boat overloaded with asylum seekers. Deciding to tow the refugees, they wake the next morning and find the fishing boat gone. One question hangs over it all… who cut the rope between the two boats?

Migrants bring new perspectives that allow us to compete in a globalised economy, yet stories of their contribution to Australia are rarely told. TransferWise believes being Australian is about recognising where and who we are now and where we hope to go, as much as where we’ve come from. That’s why we partnered with New Humans of Australia for our Faces of Australia campaign, highlighting the important contributions migrants make to our community.

The Faces of Australia campaign was a great success, with story reach ranging from 24K to 129K and a high level of engagement.

Storyfolk was built on the idea of making work that truly matters and that can go on to make a lasting impact in people’s lives and using design as a vehicle for societal, environmental and positive change. This is why Storyfolk launched Brand Kitchen by Storyfolk. Brand Kitchen by Storyfolk is an initiative designed to bring clarity, consistency and creativity to not-for-profits and purpose-driven brands. Each year, Storyfolk take on two Brand Kitchen clients with NHOA Book Three being one of the selected projects for 2021. This allowed NHOA to completely refresh the book to highlight, celebrate and champion the incredible stories.

Storyfolk is a branding and graphic design studio based in Melbourne, Australia. Storyfolk uses storytelling and strategic design to elevate businesses, amplify not-for-profits and create exceptional brands.
