Red&Grey were delighted to be entrusted with the design of the G7 Italia report. The G7, comprised of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States, and the European Union, serves as an intergovernmental political forum. With its members representing the largest advanced economies and liberal democracies, the G7 upholds values of pluralism and representative government, accounting for over half of global net wealth as of 2020 (over $200 trillion).
In May 2017, Italy hosted the G7 leaders’ meeting, focusing on foreign policy, the global economy, inequality reduction, and the migration crisis. The summit saw the participation of Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, and Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, representing the EU. During the summit, leaders adopted the final communiqué, a roadmap on gender equity, and an action plan on innovation, skills, and labor. Additionally, they endorsed the G7 Taormina Statement, addressing the fight against terrorism and violent extremism.
The I7 multi-stakeholder conference held during G7 Italia 2017 centered around the theme of “Making the Digital Economy and Society Inclusive, Open & Secure.” Our responsibility was to document this conference. Prior to attending, we conducted interviews with key members of the Italian Digital Transformation team, which helped us develop foundational content and establish an aesthetic approach for all subsequent materials.
Throughout the conference, we actively collaborated with the G7 team in three workshops: Big Data, The Future of Work, and AI. This collaboration enabled us to shape and structure the final required document. The completed book features a collection of captivating documentary-style photographs and a conference summary generated by an AI program. We collaborated with photographer Matthew Thompson, as well as strategists Paul Hughes and Thomas Ermacora on the project.
