I was asked to create an illustration for The Royal Hospital Women Foundation's 150 year Gala, a special event which raised over $750,000. I was asked to create the illustrations that were used across a variety of collateral to help brand this special evening.
The brief asked for the marriage of the Royal theme, which is the heritage (and name) of the foundation, alongside the iconic Australian animals and motifs that speak of its cultural identity and place. It was a privilege to work with this generous team and play a small part in the work they do.
The ABCs project came about in a discussion with fellow friend, illustrator and mother Andrea Smith. The project was conceived as a way to create new work in our own practices and at the same time build a collection of illustrations based on the alphabet that could be used for various products. This project is currently in the making with a new letter being released and announced every couple of weeks. The prints are available online at Milk & Stone. Stay tuned!
I have worked with the frankie team to design, produce and launch their very first magazine app created to coincide with Issue 60, the ten year anniversary issue. The app is a unique experience from the printed version whilst maintaining the integrity of the original. It features additional content, media and custom animation, with a balance between smart, intuitive and playful interaction.
I have recently finished designing and developing my fifth issue of the frankie magazine app, co-inciding with issue 64 of the print publication.
I collaborated with the Foundry team to design and develop the Logo/Masthead for their new creative publication Lume. Developed using pencil and brush pen before scanning and refining in illustrator. Lume magazine is designed/written and produced by creative director Andrew Johnstone and editor Claire van Ryne.
20 page A5 2015 tax pack for high value donors designed at Marlin Communications.
This concept was presented to The Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation for their 2015 High Value Tax Appeal letter. Designed whilst working at Marlin the type is handwritten using ink and nib and then digitally composed.
The Factory is a brand new online beauty and fashion magazine project from Intermedia.
I was asked to design the logo, the media kit and a concept eDM and to come up with an overall brand strategy which will be continued into the launch issue and beyond.
Designed within Marlin Communications the report was used to inform MSF's donators of their extremely difficult work during the Ebola crisis. The report was to be used globally and therefore the branding was tailored to suite the international branding guidelines. Info graphics were also a key component in this report to help communicate the overall story.
Concepts delivered for section titles. The client wanted to avoid dry content and by bring the retro aesthetic added some fun and colour to the book.
I was commissioned by M35's Jamie Mitchell to hand write invitations and number belly bands for McGrath Real Estate's Mastery event.

I was art director of INSTYLE magazine (Intermedia Group) between 2012 to early 2014. I worked on typographic treatments, styled photoshoots, was commissioned on custom illustrations and designed the layouts including the fashion shoots. INSTYLE is a leading B2B magazine within the hairdressing industry.
I designed and developed several of the first issues of Russh magazine's app in 2012. Completed whilst working at Reddo Media, I was responsible for re-creating the print experience into a digital environment, adding animation and interaction as part of the iPad and iPhone applications.
Interior designer Brian Woulfe, on behalf of the Lanes family, commissioned a mural on The Lanes sons bedroom wall of New York City. He had fallen in love with New York after a recent family holiday.
The brief asked for a free-hand, illustrative style highlighting the main attractions of the Manhattan area of New York. I blended illustrative 3D objects over the more traditional 2D map and also included individual hand-lettering on the map and two title pieces.
As graphic designer on IF magazine I was tasked with maintaining and improving an estabished design. Over the five issues that I was responsible for I made subtle changes to push the design in a more positive direction.
Still Life was an installation I hand made using blown glass, the vessels were then sandblasted, cut and polished. At the time I was inspired by the soft, abstract paintings of Giorgio Morandi as I was seeking to render these paintings back into a three dimensional space. The outline of forms and unusual placement of the bottles was an ode to Morandi's work and maintained some of the poetic and painterly feel of the work that originally inspired them.
Still Life was selected as part of Object Gallery's 'New Design' exhibition showacasing up and coming designers in 2004. The work was also featured in Monument Magazines top 100 emerging designers and Vogue Living.
