Until a few months ago I would eat felafel in Coburg Plaza whilst enjoying the amazing kitchness of the Barber Shop logo next door.
Alas, the gentlemen of Coburg will now have to go elsewhere to have their locks clipped and their moustaches curled, because the shop is sold and the signage gone.
It does however live on in my reapplication of it, onto tote bags, and more goodies to come. If you’re interested in one, they come in black-on-red or red-on-white and are hand screenprinted onto calico bags. Drop me a line!
In 2011 I was in charge of graphics, media and communications at Guildford Lane Gallery. Mostly I updated the website and facebook, but occasionally designed event posters & gallery promotional material.
Logo, business cards and CD cases for Melbourne band Fierce Mild.
The logo represents the dynamic nature and contradictions of both the band’s name and their musical style. The logo emulates a ‘gang sign’, but has a clean and stylised finish.
The band wanted personalised business cards for networking purposes, so I gave each card a personalised symbol, representative of their personalities.
The CD Cover was inspired by a photograph of the band taken before a gig. As the image was of extreemly poor quality I chose to illustrate it and give the case an organic feel. For this reason I used the logo sparingly, allowing the case to become a piece of art for the band.
Both the cards and cases are printed on recyled and heavily textured stocks to enhance the fan’s experience of the material.
