The Sax Institute has moved to new Sydney offices, and to kick off the move we’re celebrating with a striking new logo and visual design.
Featuring a distinctive stylised ‘S’, the new logo and updated design features bolder, brighter colours that emphasise the Institute’s reputation for flexibility, creativity and finding sustainable solutions powered by evidence.
This is the first facelift in nearly a decade for the Sax Institute, and coincides with a move to new offices in Glebe – all exciting changes that are bringing a more modern visual identity that speaks to our clarity and expertise.
A mural to mark new beginnings
In another exciting update to our look, the Sax Institute also invited renowned Aboriginal artist Lucy Simpson and Sydney-based artist Meg Minkley to create a new mural for the Institute’s staff meeting area.
Designed and illustrated by Lucy, and hand-painted by Meg, the mural is a stunning reminder of the power of partnerships – something the Sax Institute values deeply from many years working with Aboriginal communities as the coordinating centre of the Study of Environment on Aboriginal Resilience and Child Health (SEARCH).
“The mural explores notions around medicine, knowledge, healing, communication, and understanding of country,” explains Lucy, a Yuwaalaraay woman from North-West NSW. “It’s really interesting to create these spaces where people can communicate and connect. I think art has the ability to really transform the energy of a workplace.”
Lucy and Meg have worked together on other high-profile commissions for Australian companies and Meg describes their collaborative approach as an inspiring one: “I loved working with Lucy on this mural,” she says. “As a non-Indigenous person, I think it’s an honour to get to work with these shapes and stories.”
With an inspiring new office space and fresh logo, the Sax Institute is delighted to be stepping into a new era of sustainable solutions, powered by evidence. You can find our new offices at 30C Wentworth Street, Glebe, NSW, 2037.
The Sax Institute acknowledges the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation as the first peoples and traditional owners of this land. We pay our respects to Aboriginal Elders, past, present and emerging.
