Co-created by Kuku Yalanji and Woopaburra artist Leona McGrath, Indigenous organisation Yerrabingin, CommBank’s Indigenous and non-Indigenous employees, and members of the community, the creative design visually expresses our refreshed brand and values.
The artwork is designed to symbolise the Bank’s respect for and celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures as part of our RAP. The design conveys three central themes – community, connections and wellbeing, and pairs some of the CommBank colours with traditional Aboriginal designs to create an artwork and narrative that will conjure connectedness and pride with our customers, communities and our people.

Leona is a Mother, Grandmother, contemporary Aboriginal artist and a Registered Midwife. Growing up on Gadigal Country, Leona has been blessed with a strong sense of connection to Country by being welcomed into the Community.

Her journey of creating art has enabled her to have a stronger connection to her culture as well as providing opportunities to share and educate the wider community about Aboriginal people and culture.

The RAP program is run by Reconciliation Australia, the national expert body on reconciliation in Australia. The RAP is a framework for organisations to realise their vision for reconciliation. Through the program, organisations develop a business plan that documents what they commit to do to contribute to reconciliation in Australia.
