The initial hand drawn sketch of White Sash & Sacha was created using video footage, shot by The Oceania Project, as reference. The base sketch was then scanned and worked up in Photoshop to produce the final digital illustration. During a later refresh of The Oceania Project logo this illustration became the central element of the modern design. It was added to reflect the research focus of The Oceania Project expeditions, the Humpback Whales of Hervey Bay.
