Voice is how text “sounds” to a reader, either in print or spoken form. When creating content for OSRI documents, web pages, scripts, or social channels, make sure OSRI is:
OSRI should present itself publicly as a relatable source. In public documents, take time to explain difficult concepts, use concrete examples, avoid acronyms and technical jargon, and use photography and charts wherever possible.
OSRI should offer a wide array of materials, contacts, expert advice, and connections to any conceivable resource a community might need to improve its oil spill response.
OSRI should portray itself as an organization on the edge of emerging research and technology.
OSRI should strive to represent the people of coastal Alaska as opposed to outside corporate or federal interests. Strive to be unbiased while also positioning OSRI as a local, homegrown partner. Use lots of photography, community resources, and personal examples
