End of the Year Round-Up

Merry Christmas to all friends, family, collaborators, conspirators and clients of The Grazing Elk and the Social Good Outpost this year! We are ecstatic with the launch of the Social Good Outpost this year and its successes so far, and wanted to take the opportunity to wish you well, let you know about current openings, and fill you in on what we’ve been doing.

We’ve loved working with the most genuine, kind, socially-driven and wonderful people that our projects have led us to, and we are looking forward to meeting more in the coming year.

Hooray for all your successes, good luck for all the things you want to do from here, and yippee for celebrating all we’ve learned this year!

Call for New Projects

In January 2017, we will have a small number of openings for new projects. If you are looking to kick off your project or enterprise, need help with design or consultation for new rounds of grants/funding/pitching, or want to re-brand and re-design your look, website or marketing material, now’s the time to contact us so that you can hit the ground running in 2017.

Contact Elise or Lara and we’ll sit down with you over a drink (maybe a cup of chai, like one social enterprise we’re working with is making!) and we’ll plan where you’d like to go next.

 

What have we been working on?

Since launching the Social Good Outpost in June, we’ve had the pleasure of doing design and consultation for projects from the Philippines, Cambodia, and right across Australia. Some projects we’re currently working on include: design & consultation for a newly established non-profit providing support and resources for dealing with domestic violence in the workplace; design & consultation for a project educating medical and health spheres on gender and sexuality sensitivity; design & consultation for a new social enterprise in the social housing development sphere; and design & consultation for a new social enterprise in the mental health.

Lara has also been working with clients such as Bang & Olufsen and Emerald Group Investments, keeping us up with corporate and commercial trends in design.

We really love all of our clients and find it so genuinely enjoyable to work with them, and for causes which are truly ‘good’ for our communities. We can’t wait to share the design work on completion!

In other news we’ve also had much to celebrate with co-director Elise being awarded the United Nations Australia Association (QLD) Community Award this December 2016, a “prestigious award to individuals and groups as recognition for their community initiatives based on United Nations principles, reflecting peace, human rights, as well as social justice”. Her work has centred around national domestic violence prevention work, social enterprise, youth empowerment in Australia and overseas, and women’s empowerment over the last six years. Hear, hear to reflecting the ‘social good’ we aim to do!

Pass on the Christmas Cheer

We want to share the good news and the good cheer! Merry Christmas all and enjoy the new year to come!
