Travel the world in day at the Adelaide Zoo- map project

I made this map to show that you can have a break from your daily life/routine and TRAVEL THE WORLD IN A DAY at the Adelaide Zoo. Many amazing plants and animals are there and you can see the sites and smell the smells of many countries, so it is just like a one day holiday. If only they served food from various parts of the world it would be perfect. I LOVE THE ZOO!!

Sophie Hann- artist logo and branding

Meet one of the bright jewels of the South Australian art scene, Sophie Hann. Award winning portrait painter, landscape painter, art teacher and exhibitor. Sophie Hann paints with nostalgia, brilliance and charm and her paintings are highly collectable!

We were delighted to be a part of Sophie's graphic design and re-branding recently. What an honour! Zach and I designed a logo/ business card for her that encapsulates the voice of her arts practice. We used a signature grey and blue that are re-occurring colours in her paint palette and we immortalised her painterly signature for the logo. We are really excited and pleased to see our designs for Sophie's business printed and ready to be distributed to friends, colleagues and future customers.

If you are interested in learning to paint or draw under her instruction, or even commission a portrait by her, then you can find out more about her here: otherwise just go to her site to have a  little peek-a-boo at the lovely artworks that she makes.

Here is a little more about Sophie;

Largely self-taught, Sophie won a scholarship and had a brief stint  at the New York Studio School. As a teenager, she also spent time with the master of tonal realism Robert Hannaford.

She’ s won some prizes including the Ruth Tuck Travelling Scholarship and the Art Gallery of New South Wales Dyason Bequest.

Her work has been selected for a number awards, including Alice Bale Award, Brett Whitely Scholarship, Hans Heysen Landscape Prize, the Portia Geach Memorial Award and some others…

Congratulations on the new baby!

I am in San Francisco at the moment so couldnt deliver a card by hand. I just made this graphic card for my dear friends who are expecting their first baby AND they love dachshunds. What a fun combo of cuteness.

New logo designed for Sukie clothing and homewares

It has been a busy time for Zach and I juggling our graphic design studies and working with clients on the side. One of the amazing and talented people we met was Kareena from Sukie. She was one of those dream clients (often fantasised about but hardly ever found) who came fully prepared to our client meeting, with lots of inspiration for us, but with an open mind about the results. We cant wait to work more with her and help her little business sky rocket.

So with further adieu meet Kareena from the children's clothing label Sukie. She is AWESOME! She designs and makes limited edition children's and women's clothing and homewares from new and vintage fabric. Her style is fun and colourful and we love her work. Check out her ETSY store

We designed her a new fun logo that would stand out in the marketplace and reflect the style of work that she does 

This is what she says about her work:
"'Sukie' is an Australian handmade children's clothing label, with limited edition sukie-for-grown-ups lines available from time to time!
The inspiration behind the label comes from my little Sukie who loves clothes and is affectionately known for wearing absolutely anything with anything!
I love fabric and prints and sewing it all together to make something fun to wear!"
