MEGAN STEELE Born and raised in rural NSW, I have always had a passion for anything and everything creative.

Since November 2016, I have worked full time as the sole Graphic Designer at YWCA Canberra within the Com-munications, Advocacy and Fundraising team. I have a strong interest in brand development, print design, hand-lettering/calligraphy, installation design, event design/planning and design for weddings and special occasions. The projects in this book are just a sample of the work I have created throughout my career while working for YWCA Canberra, Chambers Whyte Design and Print and under my freelance business The Steele Mill.

GREAT YDEAS CLIENT

Great Ydeas Small Grants Program

REQUIREMENTS Graphic Design DESCRIPTION YWCA Canberra’s Great Ydeas Small Grants Program provides funds to local women, to pursue a professional development opportunity, pilot a project, kick-start a business idea, or address a need in the community. The program was launched in 2010 and has grown since this time to be a prominent, annual program of YWCA Canberra. As such, there grew a need to develop a logo and consistent branding. I created something that was bright, clean and contemporary and that would be harmonious with the main branding of YWCA Canberra. Created in my role at YWCA Canberra.

INNOVATION BREAKFAST 2018 CLIENT

Great Ydeas Innovation Breakfast

REQUIREMENTS Graphic Design DESCRIPTION YWCA Canberra holds an annual breakfast networking event to announce the winners of the Great Ydeas Small Grant Program and to fundraise for the YWCA Canberra Clubhouse. In 2018 there was a push to have new branding for the event that was based around the ideas of innovation, STEAM and creativity. The word ‘innovation’ is made entirely from shapes rather than just a generic font to bring together all the different elements of the event while making a logo that is engaging, unique and has a corporate feel. Created in my role at YWCA Canberra.

Y-ASPIRE PROGRAM CLIENT YWCA Canberra Youth Engagement Team REQUIREMENTS Graphic Design DESCRIPTION The YWCA Canberra Youth Engagement runs a leadership program for young girls in the Tuggeranong region aimed around confidence building and achieving their goals. The program is also taught to teachers so they can build this program into their own curriculum. The program has been running for quite a few years and over that time there has been no consistent use of branding and the elements they did have were becoming outdated. I was brought in to develop a fresh new logo and brand identity that would more closely reflect the aspirations of the program. The face represents the idea of self with the leaves representing the ideas of growth and change. Created in my role at YWCA Canberra.

YWCA CANBERRA 2016/17 ANNUAL REPORT CLIENT

YWCA Canberra

REQUIREMENTS Graphic Design Photography Illustration Infographics Social Media Graphics DESCRIPTION YWCA Canberra’s Annual Report details the highlights and achievements of the organisation in 2016-17. This was the biggest design task that I undertook at the Y and as such I went through consultations with the Executive Director on what she would like to see changed from designs created previously for the organisation. I built my design around these changes and created a unique, un-stereotypical design that focused on the original branding of YWCA Canberra and the idea of the organisation being at the center of the Canberra community. This meant creating one of a kind illustrations and infographics and photographing the members of the Y community to ensure that all the visual messaging had the essence of YWCA Canberra.

A DOLLOP OF DHAL RECIPE BOOK CLIENT

Zoya Patel

REQUIREMENTS Graphic Design Photography DESCRIPTION After working with Zoya at YWCA Canberra and through Feminartsy, she approached me to design a more personal project for her and her family; a collection of her mother’s recipes to give as a Mother’s Day present. I took this opportunity to experiment with photography and use this as the basis for the design. Rather that attempt to recreate the recipes myself (potentially not doing them justice and appearing disingenuous) I broke each recipe down to its ingredients and presented these in a unique and beautiful way – giving each recipe the respect it deserves. The final book was a gorgeous display of this family’s history and love.

Pineapple Cake Ingredients 1 can crushed pineapple 3 tbsp custard powder 1 tbsp sugar ½ cup milk 2 cups flour 2 eggs 250g butter

Method 1. Cook pineapple in a small pot. Mix custard powder and milk in a separate bowl. 2. Once pineapple is hot, add custard mixture and keep stirring until it is thick and almost dry.

3. Melt butter and add to flour, sugar and eggs in a bowl. Mix to form a soft dough. 4. Grease pie dish, and press half of the dough mixture to the bottom, and halfway up the sides of the dish. 5. Pour in cooled pineapple mix. 6. Roll the remainder of the dough out, and drape over the top of the dish. Press sides down with a fork, and prick holes into the top. 7. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius until browned.

Zaved’s memories Ahh, Pineapple Pie. If there is one thing that has always reminded me of home, it is those pies. I actually remember not liking them when I was a lot younger. Maybe it was the stringiness of the pineapple or how it was a little tart, and there were lots of other cakes and pastries that I liked a lot more. As I got a bit older, around when we moved from Lavington, I started to get a real taste for it (it was also when I had a real taste for everything, so it may have been part of that….). I would see Mum start to make the pastry and start salivating at the thought of that delicious sweet crust with the hot filling and maybe cream or ice cream to go with it. Mum would usually make the pie when we had visitors, and that was another reason I enjoyed it so much. We seemed to always have someone

visiting us those days and the pie would be either the dessert to finish up the meal or an afternoon tea that everyone loved. I would pile up the ice cream on top of the pie, and wait till it melted a bit and then eat it. The contrast between the cold of the ice cream and the heat from the pie made it one of my favourite things to eat. I also remember one of the happiest and saddest parts of my childhood, when Yasin Bhai came two or three times to visit in a short amount of time. It was great because I enjoyed spending time with him, and Mum would spoil both of us with her cooking. But it was sad because I would have to share with him and while I would love when there would be leftover pineapple pie the next day, Yasin Bhai would make sure there was none left!! It is still one of my favourite desserts and something that is on my list to learn to make! A dollop of dhal Recipes from Mum’s kitchen

Dhal bhaat Ingredients 1 cup yellow lentils ½ tsp turmeric ½ tsp chilli ½ tsp garlic ½ brown onion Mustard seeds and cumin to taste

Method 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Fry onion, mustard seeds and cumin in ghee until browned. Add lentils and remaining ingredients. Add several cups of water (about the quantity you want to have in the end). Pressure cook for 2-5 minutes. Serve over rice and with any sides you want.

Zaheeda’s memories Growing up I used to hear the term ‘comfort food’ and never really understood it till I moved out and didn’t have Mum’s cooking! It is honestly the first thing I learnt to cook when I moved out, as eating it meant that some how I was still close to Mum. I know dhal was something Mum made in

a rush and it was ( and is) one of her ‘quick’ meals - but I have never tasted anything so delicious. I remember eating dhal at other people’s homes and thinking they need to get some lessons from Mum! I also realise now that it is the best way to hide so many veggies from the girls!

Aloo Fry Ingredients 5 potatoes 1 tsp mustard seeds 1 tsp cumin 1 tbsp tumeric 1 tsp garlic Salt Chilli flakes

Method 1. Peel and slice potatoes thinly. Cover potatoes in turmeric. 2. Heat oil in pan. Put mustard seeds, cumin, garlic, salt and chilli flakes in hot oil and let it fry for a few minutes. 3. Add potatoes and mix well. 4. Turn heat down to low and stir occasionally to stop catching. 5. When potatoes are soft, taste and add more salt if needed. 6. Turn off stove and enjoy with roti.

Zakia’s memories I never really enjoyed eating too many curries growing up, especially vegetarian ones, but aloo fry was one I never complained about eating! Mum taught me how to make this just before I went to uni, so I would have been 17 at the time. I made it for our Friday night group dinners with roti, when we all had to make a dish. I can still remember coming home for the holidays, Rukshi ben and family were visiting

and Mum asked me to make aloo fry and bean curry. She was so proud and told everyone I make the best aloo fry. Mum always encouraged us to learn to cook and try new things. She always said to go with what feels right with flavours, and I always remember that when I cook.
