Flame Design was responsible for the design and production of thousands of elements for the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) convention, held in Johannesburg.
Design elements included the CITES logo, multilingual fact sheets, banners, brochures, promotional products and a sculpture. Exhibition stands, reception desks and a large table were also produced for the CITES convention. In total, 100 design layouts were created for just under 29 000 production elements, making this a mammoth project for the team.
IFAW Youth Forum production
Flame Design was also tasked with the production of various elements for the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) Youth Forum that lead up to the CITES convention. IFAW delegates also attended the conference with the aim of identifying and prioritising proposals that affect seven endangered animals; elephant, rhino, shark, African grey parrot, lion, pangolin and macaque.
The IFAW Youth Forum was attended by 25 carefully selected individuals between the age of 18 and 25 from around the world. Over 1000 applicants were received. The forum allowed the young representatives to engage in skill-building workshops and to learn about modern conservation and wildlife issues.
