Insider Guides are a series of free, annual guides, given to prospective and current international students. They are designed to equip international students with the tools to enjoy Australia on their terms.
Our intention with these guides was to create something different to the conventional student guide. Instead we sought to design a collectable piece that students would enjoy and hold onto. For the vibrant illustrations we enlisted the help of illustrators we admire, Andrew Fairclough of Kindred Studio and MUTI. The layout complements the design using a strong grid system and a single tone colour system to differentiate sections and editions. Our hope that the Guides evoke the excitement and sense of adventure, that moving to a new country brings.
I am now on Instagram. Don’t get too excited, just give me a follow to check out work in progress shots and the other images that don’t make it here. Or, just take a look if you are partial to primary colours.
Hopes and Beans, is a vegetarian/vegan cafe in Adelaide’s eastern suburbs.
After a brainstorming all things vegan pun, we decided on the name ‘Hopes and Beans’ not only a play on hopes and dreams and associations with coffee and lentil beans but also for a deeper reflection on hope. The cafe has made a conscious effort to employ staff with mental disabilities and disadvantages.
I stuck to design fundamentals, stripped it back and followed the path of simplicity, to reflect the nature of the business, incorporating basic illustrations to introduce a fun side to the branding.
Lesonic logo for a future DJ project based in the UK. Rolling brush script which would look at home sitting above an image of a girl in leg warmers on a VHS case. Shown in full colour ‘Schoolbook Sticker’ version.
Final chosen logo for the second series of Australian action/comedy TV series ‘Danger 5’. The new series, features a change in decade, to the 80s and the team required a period correct logo. The obvious choice shown here, full of bevels, airbrush look chrome and a lively brush script.
Personally can’t wait for this new series. Anything inspired by the 80s is of course awesome and these guys will pull it off perfectly. For anyone unfamiliar you can check the first 60s inspired series on youtube.
