NAIDOC week is one of the most significant weeks on the Australian cultural calendar, a nationally recognised symbol for our mob, every year the right to print the posters is awarded to one lucky business.
Last year Yalagan imprint was fortunate enough to win the opportunity to print and distribute the posters, and again this year we were thrilled that NIAA gave us the opportunity to do it all over again!
‘We are proud to be an Indigenous business delivering on such a timely, equally important and relevant material such as this,’ Georgia Walker Imprint Marketing Manager said.
Since last year, Yalagan Imprint has grown exponentially in its capacity and Imprint Co-Founder Yindjibarndi/Njamal woman and artist Jessica Wilson has taken on a client-facing role as its Creative Director.
‘We are so honoured to have been chosen for the second year in a row to print and distribute the NAIDOC week posters,’ Jessica said.
‘Winning the NIAA contract last year and having the opportunity to participate in bringing NAIDOC week to life was a real kick off point for the business and enabled us to gain a whole variety of contracts, and service even more clients by increasing our scope of services.’
‘As a young Indigenous woman this is an exciting time to be in business, we look forward to growing the company even further as the year progresses and working closer with NIAA to help support on these kinds of projects.’
Over the last few years Yalagan Group as a company has been working on new ways to diversify our service offering after emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, this is where Imprint was developed. Established in the middle of 2020 Imprint was created with an Indigenous core focus of providing services, print, design and marketing solutions to our clients across Australia.
Since starting Yalagan Imprint has been lucky enough to secure a combination of state and federal contracts pushing the business into the forefront of Indigenous print providers.
The 2022 NAIDOC Week poster is available online from or in hard copy from NIAA Regional Offices and Woolworth stores around Australia.
