The DDP team at the DNA Paris Design Awards ceremony.

2023 saw DDP win a prestigious DNA Paris Design Award for its work on the IPCA Knowledge Basket site.

The project for the Conservation Through Reconciliation Partnership resulted in a brand and a digital space to honour, celebrate, and catalyze Indigenous-led conservation pathways in Canada.

Designed to integrate and honour Indigenous ways of knowing, this digital resource was created to function as a virtual Indigenized space. The website aimed to have users interact with the stories and resources and create “Knowledge Baskets” or accounts where they could save their findings and collect related materials while respecting the digital space and messages provided. Among Indigenous Peoples, oral storytelling remains an important and accessible method of both teaching and learning. The brand, website and video we created is an auditory and visual experience tailored to teach and inspire users.

“To have Indigenous design recognized on an international level is incredibly exciting, important and humbling.” says Jennifer Taback, a Partner at Design de Plume. “For the past several years we have challenged what typical designs in this space look like and advocated on behalf of our clients to ensure that their diverse histories, narratives and resources are made in their own voices.”

To have Indigenous design recognized on an international level is incredibly exciting.
