How can we help international students navigate safe sex and relationships in Australian culture?

The Caddyshack Project recognise that diverse cultural backgrounds and life experiences impact international students' knowledge and understanding of sexual health and relationships. Caddyshack wanted to create a resource for these students that was non-confrontal and informative.

We developed a passport sized kit which includes info cards on Safe Sex and Relationships, a male and a female condom, and some business cards for local sexual health services. An approachable muted colour pallet speaks to the intimate nature of relationships while the diverse selection of images ensures that all students can see themselves represented in this kit no matter the culture, sexual preference or relationship status.

1000 SH&R Kits were distributed to international students during O-Week at University of Wollongong for the initial pilot test run of the kit in 2019. In 2020 10,000 kits will be distributed across multiple UOW campuses in New South Wales and an Online Resources web page has been built to provide easier access to service provider contact details.

I worked closely with the people at Caddyshack on developing this resource primarily looking after the creative aspects of its execution, including:

  • Art Direction

  • Graphic Design

  • Branding and Package Design

  • Ongoing Mobile App Development (Figma)
