What a fun project – working with my good friends Rob Frith & the WA Historical Cycling Club to design the visuals for the recent exhibition of rare historic bikes at the Museum of Perth. Who knew a Coolgardie bicycle courier in the 1930s would cycle 200km a day, over rutted tracks, just to deliver a telegram? or that […]
Hey, there’s a new Kiosk on the southerner’s side of the river! We refreshed the original Kiosk Floreat Beach website & launched the new Freo site just a couple of days ago. Thanks to the OM4 guys for taking my ordered-but-mad design and making it work. Congrats & good luck to Jaqii & Stefano.
Additions to the OM4 stable of literature… thanks Glenn for letting me loose with the texta illustrations again.
John Rice is the perfect client & a brilliant wedding photographer: talented, entertaining & personable, with a singular eye for artistic photography. The brief for this job was to present John’s special take on wedding photography: capturing the love between the bride & groom and recording that connection in a photo-journalistic, natural way. Developing a […]
And here are the final embossed DeRay & Simcoe cards. A very fine print/emboss job by the Pilpel blokes. We printed these one PMS – each girl’s card alternates the grey & white scheme, for a personalised look. note: I do believe the girls use equipment a little more updated than my Brownie 127 camera.
I’ve whipped up a few eNewsletters now, but designing for Rob Frith allows a little more creativity and personality to be injected… in fact, it’s de rigueur! So I broke out the fat Texta and drew a couple of loose illustrations as changeable headers for Rob’s amusing missives. Just received Rob’s first info-tainment instalment this […]
I’m free-wheeling around my office on a fabulous new Aeron chair! A long-overdue replacement for the tired foam-cushioned office chair from last century. While still working out the levers & adjustments, I’m having fun imitating an exec leaning back in the power position. I love the Forward Tilt and my sacral dysfunction loves the posture-fitting Aeron […]
My friend Claudia showed me this neat iPad app, Minimal Folio. Present your portfolio in swipe-friendly columns for a non-linear iPad presentation. It handles images & PDFs, integrates with Dropbox, works very intuitively. Bargain @ $2.99. Just love the thumbnail view.
Last year, Una invited me to work on the design for her book, Ciara’s Gift, which describes her journey through grief after the loss of her beloved daughter. Soft watercolours inspired by nature illustrate the quotes and text – all with a subtle, contemplative feel. This was a very special assignment. We have just launched Una’s […]
I worked with Glenn and the guys at OM4 to redesign & relaunch the website for Castelli Estate, a high-achieving wine producer from the Great Southern Region of Western Australia. The client already had their brand established, and some great photography (by Francis Andrijich) on-hand, providing some pretty neat raw materials… all ready for a […]
