Outstanding communicators.
Always verbal, then visual.

What we can do for you

Our experienced team of designers can offer you a range of services, from Strategy and Copywriting, through to Brand development, User experience and Production management services. We understand that all projects encompass differing complexities and need to be approached, discovered and managed according to your specific needs. 

We are ready to work through challenges with you, whether big or small, and provide the support you need to meet your strategic, design, branding and communication goals. 

Over 15 years, we have moved from a one-man show (operating out of a third bedroom behind a defunct Malaysian takeaway restaurant in Ivanhoe) to the vibrant design studio we are today. Importantly, we are delighted to be able to say that our very  first client is directly connected to the clients we are working with today. 

It is via this evolutionary process that our studio has come to consist of 5 designers, and a continually growing marketing team of satisfied clients. To date, we have allowed this growth to take its natural course, relying on our delighted clients to take us forward to our next challenge. So where will you lead us next?

  • Icon Service 01

    Strategy & Planning

    Do you know what you ‘want’ but are unsure of what you need?

    We can work with you to develop an approach which exceeds your expectations. Designing an outcome starts with discovery, then learning, then new ideas. You want a great outcome, we can make sure you not only get what you want, but more importantly what you need.

  • Copywriting Editing 01

    Copywriting & Editing

    Much of our work uses words, sometimes just a few, other times, seemingly endless amounts.

    You may need an extra pair of eyes to edit the content of a document. Or you may need new content to accompany the design we are creating for you. We can do both. We have the capacity to edit long or short documents, as well as research and develop content for you, no matter how broad or niche the subject matter is.

  • Branding

    Branding

    Your plans may be local, your dreams might be global. Our approach will be responsive and proportionate.

    Creating a new visual identity or brand is an exciting process. The importance of getting it right cannot be underestimated. It will be with you for years or even decades to come.  

    When crafting an identity, we aim for more than just an attractive logo – we give an identity personality and meaning.

  • Digital Design

    Digital design & User experience (UX)

    Digital design and UX is indispensable for most organisations. Your stakeholders expect your digital information to be usable, clear and visually appealing.

    In an ever-changing digital landscape, we can provide up to date and insightful advice and guide you towards the best outcome for your digital needs, including web development, intranet, app, microsite or mobile design. This includes looking deeply at your needs and recommending approaches that are appropriate for both analogue and digital solutions.

  • Project Management

    Project management

    Are your needs complex and require various design outputs? Are you unsure of how to find the best methods for production?

    You may require a whole suite of services from information gathering, running of workshops, copywriting, editing, design, illustration and print. We can help you with all of these, and more! Over the last 15 years we have built strong relationships with a variety of suppliers and can offer you advice and options for the most complex design projects.

  • Print Publication

    Print & Publication

    The tangible nature of a printed document is still an important tool for an organisation to inform and/or influence their target audience.

    We'll work closely with you to create layouts that engage the audience and best showcase your information. We use dynamic text layout, infographics and imagery to create an outcome for you that is sensible, digestible and beautifully designed. Should you need to create an online complimentary piece, we can produce that for you too.
