AusGrid – Smart Grid, Smart City report

Location:Sydney, NSW

Elton Consulting’s Design Studio was engaged by ARUP to design an extensive suite of reporting documents for Ausgrid’s Smart Grid, Smart City Program. This included the design and production of the Independent Report (668 pages over 3 volumes) and the supporting technical reports (1,813 pages over 10 volumes).

The Independent Report pulled together information from over two years of analysis. Elton Consulting’s brief was to design a visually interesting document that was also manageable to read. Our solution was to split the report into three volumes and design a colour coding and electronic graphic styling system to make access to information easier. A case was then designed to hold the three documents together.


Our work

Because of the complexity of information, the redesign and clarification of the maps, graphics and technical drawings was crucial to the success of these documents. Final output included printed and online versions.
