Sally Morgan Design was a fledgling Indigenous design company established by writer, illustrator and artist Sally Morgan. Sally Morgan Design was interested in establishing some Indigenous designed product lines that also returned value to community.
Our Country worked with Sally Morgan Design to establish two projects that would help grow Sally Morgan Design, provide a return to community through supporting donations and sponsorships and increase supplier diversity within the supply chain of Sally Morgan Design clients.
The first project was working with Bunzl, one of the largest consumables suppliers in Australasia, to produce an Indigenous designed Coffee cup. This eye catching product has since been utilized by a number of major facilities management companies. A portion of sales goes towards the Budadee Foundation’s ‘Irrungadji Arts’ Program which supports arts programs and cultural knowledge transfer at Nullagine.
The second project was with Wesfarmers Industrial and Safety (WIS) to produce an Indigenous designed safety boot. WIS approached Our Country to explore the potential of an Indigenous designed product line. Our Country worked with Sally Morgan Design to create a unique and eye catching design for a specific line of safety boots. Under a license fee arrangement a portion of all sales of this footwear go towards the Inigienous Literacy Foundation.
Our Country continues to assist Sally Morgan Design with provide business planning and marketing support.
