Our shirt design and artwork

The AEMEE board were very proud to wear the newly custom designed AEMEE shirt at this years Annual 2017 Conference in Cairns. 

Our wonderful sponsor Dezigna Impression Indigenous artist and team did an amazing job coming up with our new design and all our print needs for the conference. 


The artwork represents AEMEE and how we connect with community.
The “Gathering Circles” represent the mining, energy and exploration sectors, of AEMEE. The “Linking Lines” between each Gathering Circle indicate the connection each sector share. The small dots represent the communities in which AEMEE works with. 


The outside line work depict tracking marks and the larger dots represent the footprints AEMEE are making.


Watch this space for the launch of the new AEMEE supporter shirt!
