The Oceania Project needed a platform to disseminate information it was gathering, including current news, action alerts and research. To handle such dense amounts of material, Stephen created a tight typographical four column grid with feature sections to help break up the copy. The overall design successfully allowed the Oceania Project to quickly spread the latest news from around the world to its community of supporters and fellow researchers in the scientific community.

Stephen created a masthead that joined the ‘d’ of Sound and the ‘N’ of Net, saving space without affecting the legibility of the publication’s name.
