Pacific Voices

Editorial Design
with Storybox & Mana Moana


      Pacific Voices began as a series of video works that combine artwork, poetry and documentary. They were created by Mana Moana Collective to amplify the Pacific's fight to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions.
      The works were  supported by the Aotearoa New Zealand Ministry of Trade and Enterprise, and the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme. They were produced by Storybox and shown at the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 26) in Glasgow.  
      The Secretariat tasked Storybox to design a publication that  would commemorate the artworks and recognise the diplomatic efforts of Pacific Representatives at COP over the past two decades.

      We designed a one hundred and twenty page book that combined artwork, poetry, statements from Pacific climate representatives and scientific writing.  
      Pacfic Voices - The Pacific Climate Change Story is a resounding cry for help and recognition from the forefront of the climate crisis.

The work was independently published in a run of five hundred copies. The cover was screen printed onto Wibalin Finelinen stock and features artwork by Sue Pearson of a hibiscus flower, a common motif in Pacific textile designs.
      Internal spreads bring together stills from video works, poetry, landscape photography of Pacific Islands, scientific writing about climate change in the region, and statements from representatives.
      Typography and colour is used to clearly delineate between the different content types. The resulting publication brings together art and science to bolster the environmental statements of the United Nation's Pacific delegates.
